There is nothing better than finding joy and meaning in the things God has given us to enjoy. This is especially true for the “great outdoors.” From open fields and running rivers to birds, deer, and fish...there is an abundance of natural resources all around us. It’s in this sanctuary of seasons, crunching leaves and the call of a turkey, where many people find they sincerely connect with God. It’s also in these places that people have an opportunity to enjoy nature’s bounty together and get to know each other and the Creator in the process.

Living and Active

The Bible says this about itself in Hebrews 4:12: “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (New King James Version)

The Blessings of Thankfulness

I always looked forward to family holidays as a child.  Our holidays included our large extended family of four generations.  My great-grandmother, grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings, friends and neighbors were a part of these holidays.  Our traditions of gathering together continue although the locations and participants have changed throughout the years.  I consider these gatherings as one of life’s many blessings and we value these traditions deeply.

Bounce Back From a Setback: 6 Ways

Since she was 12, Catherine Romero was athletic, running and then doing triathlons. Shortly after posting her personal best time of 1 hour, 31 minutes in a triathlon, disaster struck. The Seattle attorney suffered a stroke. “No one expects a healthy, fit 39-year-old woman to have a stroke. I certainly didn’t,” she says. Testing revealed a large hole in her heart. Doctors believe she was born with this hole and her heart enlarged to compensate for it. During the two months she waited to have surgery, she remained at home. The once very energetic, strong athlete was now “weak, dizzy, unable to walk or use my left arm properly, having trouble with certain words, afraid of having another stroke and feeling extremely depressed.”

Women of the Word

 

Once bitten, twice shy. That pretty much describes my response to most major marketing campaigns by Christian publishers. So often I’ve found that the best books are the ones that appear with the least fuss, and that the ones carried in on the back of a major marketing wave prove to be disappointing. But not always.
