As I prepared for the first week of January 2018, I sensed a few things that I thought the Lord wanted me to share with our church family. But before I get into that, the backstory for 2017 was the fact that God had given my husband, Rory and myself a symbol for 2017....

We don’t know what the future holds, but we do know who holds our future … in his hands!

Those same hands that hold ours as we tiptoe into the unknown;

The New Year is just another day with a sunrise and a sunset, but ...

the way we think about it, is what makes it different! New Year is both a finish line and a starting line at the same time!

A parting gift. 

When I was in twelfth grade in South Africa, a Rotary exchange student came from Australia to join our class. Wendy fitted right in and I was delighted when she spent two months of that year living with my family and me. As a parting gift she gave me a...

It really matters how you wrap your gift and how you deliver it.

In John 12:49-59(NIV) Jesus is speaking, "For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it. I know that his command leads to eternal life."
