Partnering with God in Prayer

Are you willing to partner with God? Are you willing to stand in the gap before God for the people of the earth? God is calling us to partner with Him in prayer. May we respond to His call.

My Favorite Gift Books

These are my favorite books to give as gifts to other people. I enjoy giving books for Birthdays, Christmas, Baby Showers or to sow into young people’s Summer Reading libraries. Purchasing books as a friend, as an Aunt, as a Mom and now as a grandmother – brings me great joy!

Type of Woman or Stage of Growth?

Dream: I saw Jesus interacting with three different women. Jesus approached the first woman; sat next to her and held her in His arms; He spent a great length of time with her. Jesus approached the second woman; sat next to her and talked with her for a short moment, then He continued on His way. With the third woman, Jesus simply made eye contact, then kept walking.

“I’m so glad you came to My house.”
“I’m so glad you came to ME!”
