Happy Spring! Don’t you love the beautiful colors of the flowers that are beginning to bloom? I love the change of seasons. I’m ready for some warmer weather and sunny skies. I’ve already done some spring cleaning and it makes everything look clean and fresh. The past three months we have talked about “Believing for God’s best.” For the next three months we will look at “Being obedient to God’s Word and voice.” Being obedient: I often say to my grandsons, “Listen and obey, that’s the right way.” Why is it so easy to say, but hard to always...

Goal Setting

I’m excited to see what this year holds as each of us pursue God’s plan and purpose for our lives. 2017 was filled with so many wonderful experiences both in ministry and for me personally.

God Makes Things Beautiful

I love the colors of fall. Last week Bill and I traveled from Portland, to Salem, to Medford, to Lakeview, to Sunriver and then home. Can you imagine the majestic scenery we were able to see on this trip! The big win for me was when I saw a sign that said Crater Lake. I had never been there and this was definitely on my list of places to see. I asked Bill if it was within driving distance to stop by before heading to Lakeview. He checked the mileage and agreed this is something we should do. Oh, I...
