I am so happy that “Peace in the Midst” has provided encouragement to several people. I have had some send me private messages, and some in person. I am not a theologian, just a lover of Christ. Yes, this is my first published book. No, it is not perfect. But I am so grateful that the Father has used it in the lives of people. Truly, I am humbled.
I also realize that God gifts us in many areas, and that we choose whether or not to use these gifts for His glory. To surrender our lives means that in all areas of life we surrender, even the very simple things. When we indeed understand the unconditional love of God that is not a difficult task. Well, I will admit that the “little things” are harder than the bigger.
We have had a few days when several things have gone wrong at the house and in other areas. In fact, if I were to list them you would probably laugh. This is the reaction we have finally chosen. After fretting over them a bit, we have turned them over as well.
So as awkward as this feels to ask, please feel free to share this post. The more encouragement out there, the better!

And we always painting our nails.Continue reading Grandma and Gifts→
