Wouldn’t your church like a retreat in October or November?

Yes, yes … this blog entry is all about shameless self-promotion. I admit it. Be warned and feel free to skip … But after I CANCELED all of my October events and DECLINED all of my November events because of the baby … And then once we lost the baby … I have like NO events for October and November. …

Refusing to forgive …

I just received permission from Robert D. Jones to include an excerpt from his wonderful book, Uprooting Anger: Biblical Help for a Common Problem, in my dvd study guide. Thought you might enjoy it too–so here you are! God bless, Tara B. Robert D. Jones lists a number of descriptors about people who hold grudges and refuse to forgive. Do …

Glorifying God in 12 Hours or 99 Days …

HT to Barbara Curtis (again!) for posting this sweet, poignant video. (And she thanked “Spunky” too … so who knows who posted it first?) It totally reminded me of our own church’s sweet Liam–who lived only twelve hours, but was deeply and dearly loved. (And Liam is missed today!)
