Welcome August 2021

July 30, 2021

Join me as we pray for this month: “Dear Father, As we approach a change in seasons, we seek your face for wisdom and guidance. Give us the strength to live each new day for your kingdom. We praise you that the pandemic seems to be winding down, and we lift up those still under restrictions. Based on your mercy, we beg for restoration of our freedoms listed in the Constitution, and pray our nation will return to you. Bless us with the courage to resist falsehood while speaking truth. May we rest in you and live out the hope you gave us in Christ. I pray in the Name of Jesus, Amen.”

May the below Others-Centered Calendar Challenge be an encouragement to you and those around you. My team and I pray these prompts get you one step closer toward our God, the Ultimate Father, who controls ALL things, including justice, peace, and our nation.

How to Make America Godly Again

July 29, 2021
Make America Godly Again

Our theme in July has been patriotism, and we’ve been talking about the past. This week we move into the present. We see forces in our nation that want to destroy our freedom. For instance, during the pandemic, governments tried to force churches to stay closed while bars could stay open. What can we do?

Author Pamela Christian chatted with me on this topic. Did you know the term “woke” came from Marxist thought? But there is hope! Pamela offered simple things we can do to make a difference. One of them was a bumper sticker you can get from her website.

Except for the pandemic, we’ve never had such restrictions. Patriots fought and died to purchase our freedom.

Let’s Welcome July 2021 + Celebrate FREEDOM

June 30, 2021

So very excited to announce that my third series to The Gold Series is launching soon! In 2008 my husband contracted encephalitis… his recovery lasted several years. I began to fear I would become self absorbed since I had so many tough issues during that time. I had to cling to God like never before. This new book, Reflecting Gold, deals with showing God’s love and grace in difficult times. Plus, the timing could not be more perfect—the book also reflects the FREEDOM found when we truly reflcet Him. I am also excited to announce that a free Bible study will be posted on the site to accompany the book. Stay tuned!

Join me as we pray for this month:
“Dear Holy Father, thank you for revealing truth that sets us free from bondage. We lift up those in our nation who are confused and bound by the enemy’s lies. May the Spirit of God penetrate their hearts and liberate them from sin and slavery. Bless us as we share your grace and wisdom from your Word. Call us back to yourself and grant us a new birth of freedom. Thank you for those warriors who sacrificed and fought for us. I pray in the Name of Jesus, Amen.”
