Joy received her Master of Arts in Christian Education on this May week-end. Joy’s husband, Zack (left), graduates with his Master in Theology in the spring of 2019.

We all have gifts to share in God’s kingdom.
In 1997 I heard a sermon by Rev. Mark Arnott. The message offered biblical points regarding God’s gifts to us. One specific point stated: When we share our gifts we help others.
Since then I’ve honed in on discovering God’s gifts to me, and began purposefully sharing them with others. Sharing our gifts is a special journey we can all participate in.
My latest writing project is a screenplay titled: JEREMIAH’S PLAN.
JEREMIAH’S PLAN inspires viewers to seek and fulfill their plan from God, in turn, making a difference and causing others to seek and fulfill their plan from God, in turn, making a difference. . .Praise God for His continuous perfect plan!
Now, I wait in faith for producers, production companies and/or actors to respond to my requests for them to read JEREMIAH’S PLAN.
I stand firm on God’s Word that I am called—He has a plan for me—He made promises to me which I believe—and He wants to bless me.
Feel free to join my prayer team thanking God for favor and blessings on JEREMIAH’S PLAN.
Lift Him Up don’t Pull Him Down —The eternal importance of never momentarily taking our Lord’s name in vain.
Here is a excerpt from my book, describing the attitude God desires from us each time we speak His name:
If you feel uncomfortable standing up for this truth [not taking the Lord’s name in vain], then try getting down on your knees instead. Have you ever gotten down on your knees in the middle of a room, and prayed to God? It’s a different feeling praying on your knees, than it is laying comfortably snuggled in bed. On your knees in the middle of a room with nothing but God to lean into. Head bowed down, arms at your side, you are humbling yourself. You are admitting you are lower than God. You are acting subservient; ready to obey a higher power. And you are also displaying reverence; deep respect and honor for One with authority.
When you are in this position, praying your heart out to God, you realize how this is the attitude God always wants us to have, each time we speak His name. This action of our kneeling, lifts Him up. So as we walk throughout our day, relating and talking to others, remember God desires us to continually acknowledge the sovereignty of His name, as if we were still down on our knees.
I am thankful for the opportunities God offered me to share my book at speaking engagements, Bible studies, and through family and friends.
