Greetings! I decided that I would review this book as I thought it may be a good tool for a new Christian. I thought that I could pick up a couple copies and have in my library as a resource. Another point from this book was that it was a refreshing read for me. I say this because I knew the things that I should be doing, should know be there already. While reading this brought points to my mind to consider how I have been and if improvement (maybe wrong wording, but you get my point) be made. Another that I have been thinking about is Discipleship. Discipleship is about growing deep and long and high and wide in the Lord. Discipleship is about being filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit. It is about expressing the fullness of His love to everyone you come into contact with. I have been studying on this because it has been a subject that I desired more of a knowledge for. I hope you take the time to get a copy of this book and read it as I have. I was not told how to write my review, I am thankful for the copy I received. I will be sharing this book with others. Thank you.

Greetings Everyone!!! I apologize for not being on here more often, BUT I am happy to announce that I have some news for all of you that have been following the medical challenges. I recently had some chest surgery. We had thought that I was dealing with a hernia or something along those lines, but we found that there's a bone mass, several fractures in the cartilage and a torn area. I must say that I am not upset about the news we have, because we are receiving answers as well as better direction. I know that I have the Lord to thank for this development. I hope that we receive further direction at the next appointment coming up soon! I will be sure to update further then.
I have some crafts that I have been designing, finishing up. I hope to have them posted soon.
Thanks for being so understanding!

I found that what you put in your mouth effects your physical body while what you put in your mind effects you spiritually. I felt that this six week study was great. I felt that this was good in that it wasn't too long and I didn't lose interest in getting to the end. I would recommend this book to add to your collection of heath books for your family.
Grace & Peace,

We need to embrace with contentment God's calling on our lives. The saying has the sense that we are to let God use us and seek to be fruitful wherever we are. He has great plans for us if only we will step out of our comfort zone. He will show us that it's ok and we will enjoy every moment.
Bloom where you are planted. It is an old statement, but there is a lot of truth to the words. I think, though, in order to truly bloom where we are planted we must be thankful for more than just the location that we call home; we must also be grateful for the circumstances and the seasons in which we find ourselves and learn to praise God and see His loving hand in both the good and the difficult things in our lives.
I say this because, I know in my own life that I have had some hard seasons and circumstances to deal with and face. I know without God I couldn't get through these. I would have fallen flat on my face, given up, threw in the towel. I didn't do that because I do have a relationship with Christ and my walk may not be the perfect walk, but it's the walk He has for me. I have had several challenges even recently as of this past December. I had a scare with the words "cancer". I do not have cancer, but right now I am one step away from it as my doctor said. We are doing treatment right now and I will be having a biopsy in April. I am placing it in God's hands because HE holds the answer, He holds the cure. I know we can do this. I have been doing what I have been instructed to. I have confidence, faith that we will be getting a good biopsy report.
As you may have read in past posts or even recent posts because we just had Rare Disease Day; my son and I have Osteogenesis Imperfecta. I could say that this has brought us down. I will say this however, it did drop me to my knees in the beginning. You may ask why. Our son is special needs and we have had a wild ride with his special needs. I say wild ride meaning we have had many things to learn about each one of them. We had to learn how to help him with processing things and just learning how to get through his day. Now with the Osteogenesis Imperfecta as part of his life and mine we could have let it control us and keep us from doing the things we love or want to do. We just do them with caution. We have learned how to put God into this and show Him praise through this. We show this through our unbreakable spirits. We may fracture, but we don't let this get us down. We keep our spirits up.
Grace & Peace,
