  • God has been so faithful through my trial of cancer this past year. The body was so amazing in supporting both me and my family. Surrounding us with love and compassion.

I can’t wait for heaven, where I will get a new glorified whole body.

  • I am thankful for my priorities, friends and family. I am thankful for food, water, house and clothes. And I am really thankful for FBC for teaching me about the God, Lord, Holy Spirit and the gospel. And for teaching me tons and tons of memory verses.  My favorite verse is Romans 10:17, “faith comes by hearing and hearing comes from the Word of God.”  I say that every day to myself.

  • I am so thankful the Lord has been working on my heart by revealing what a prideful person I am. The trials have made me dependent on Him in a way that has brought me to my knees. Even as there seems to be no eand to the trials, I am counting it all JOY for the building of my character! And thankful for the new baby boy coming soon!
  • I am thankful for the safe delivery of our son almost 8 weeks ago, and for the Lord sustaining me through his week-long stay in the NICU.  God grew my husband and I through that experience, bringing us to a place where we had nothing but Him.  It was a long week, but at the end we were able to say that Christ alone brought us through. I am thankful for my family who is so giving, and our wonderful RMG for discipling and giving me and challenging me to be more like Christ.
  • I am thankful for Jesus.
  • I am thankful for Gods grace in my life.  God has provided a job after 4 months of unemployment, continued health during time of unemployment, I am Thankful for FBC’s boldness to continue to preach the Word week after week unashamedly. I am thankful that God  is much smarter that I am, even when I don’t understand my circumstances because He is always faithful.
