Banana Bread and Witnessing!

      I was reading this morning on a blog of one of our Missionaries.  She shared a story of how she has made banana bread and used it to open the door to talk to people about Jesus and coming to their church.  This post really blessed me and challenged me both.  You can read her whole post at       As I was reading her post, I was thinking of who I could maybe do this for.  Not just for witnessing to them but to maybe encourage them, let them know someone cared, missed them, thought of them etc.      Don't like banana bread, don't bake it, so make a cake, cookies, muffins, it doesn't matter what you take, just that you let them know someone cares.

      Someone cares, but do they know?  I am off to bake and make my list.  I challenge you to do the same, who can you invite to church, encourage, let them know they are missed, let them know someone cares?

How To Pray For Your Husband!

Colossians 1:9-109)For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10)That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
           How do you pray for your husband?  Do you pray for your husband?  This is something that God has brought to my attention a lot lately. A preacher at church recently said you will find time to do what is important to you.  My husband is important to me and I know I should pray more for him so I started thinking how I should pray and what I should pray for.  The following is what I have came up with for my husband and me.  I am sharing in the thought that maybe it will help someone or at least challenge them to pray for their husband.           I bought a journal and on Page 1, I wrote my husbands name.  I first wrote some prayer re…

Soul Surfer-Yes or No? This is my opinion

There is a very popular movie out right now called "Soul Surfer".  It basically tells the story of Bethany Hamilton.  She lost an arm as a 13 year old surfer from a shark attack.  This is the story of how she overcome and returned to surfing.   This movie is being shown in several churches to their teens.  It is touted as a christian movie. I was really excited when I first heard about it and was thinking, great, a movie we can see as a family but after watching the trailer and learning more, we will not be seeing this movie.  Now I may offend some in what I am about to say but this is as the blog post title says MY opinion.  I will not be taking my teenage son to see this movie.   After seeing the trailer for the movie,  I knew it was not for us. Now, as for being a christian movie, I did not see alot of that.  From ones who have seen it, there are a couple of scenes where they pray and I think maybe a couple of bible verses referenced.  There is one scene where she sneaks ou…

Word Filled Wednesday

This picture and scripture just spoke to me when my son showed it to me.  He took the picture and added the scripture.  As you watch where this world is headed and all the things that are happening daily-I feel there is an even greater need to win souls.  The time is at hand and we better be ready and we need to be out there helping others to be ready too. God bless, Pat

My Spiritual Life? Where am I? Where am I going?

This is not my bible but if I was honest, this might as well be mine.  I have struggled for a long time if I wanted to even write this post but I finally have decided I need to be honest even only with myself and God, if it helps someone else well that is even better.
      I do alot "for" God is what I have said lots of times.  I am Children's church Director, Kids of the King Director, I teach Children's church, I work in the nursery, I am over Moms meeting and I help with everything I can in the church.  But, I don't spend alot of time with God.  I read my bible enough to teach my class or in church but that is about it.  I have lots of excuses why but that is all they are, excuses.       What happened to studying the bible?  What happened to reading it daily?  I say, "I meant to", "It got too late", "I don't have time in the morning", "It was bedtime before I new it", "I am just so busy". Any of that sound f…
