Finding Joy In The Lord (and a Great Book!)

Yellow Background, Finding Joy: It's a Choice, It's a Lifestyle

“Finding Joy” by J.C. Lafler is a story about the challenge of finding joy in life’s most trying circumstances, and corresponding verses in the Bible that lead us to choose joy.

This book is inspiring, and filled with hope in the midst of trials. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a light read, willing to accept a personal challenge, and not afraid of a few tears!

It’s #ChristianBooktober, Day 18 already!! Today’s spotlight is a Romantic Suspense, “No Turning Back” by Katie Vorreiter. Prison Ministry is so very important. But like any ministry worth doing (Even Parenting!), it’s certainly not without risk! I love what the author shares about the inspiration for this story. A dash of reality, a pinch of imagination, and some creative writing, combined with real faith in God.

Are You Ready to Dwell in the Shelter of the Most High?

ArynFamily17 Comments

It’s a privilege for us to Dwell in the Shelter of the Most High. As Beth Moore is so fond of saving, there ain’t no ‘high’ like the Most High! He is the Maker, Creator, Master and Friend. Almighty Father Protector and Guide. For us to be allowed shelter with Him, well, wow! I’ve spent a good bit of time on Psalm 90-91 lately (a prayer of Moses), with this post in mind. Psalm 90 talks about the Most High God, and His power and eternal nature. A plea to see God’s work, be seen, and granted favor. Psalm 91 … Read More
