Merry Christmas! And Happy New Year!

God is good, all the time! Life takes many unexpected turns. And we can choose how we respond.


I found Santa & Mrs. Clause in Florida last weekend!

I am entering a new phase of Life. My former “normal” has been forever changed. I am blessed with the opportunity to follow God’s leading to fulfill my destiny. We all face a New Year with new challenges and opportunities.

I pray for you! I pray that God will bless you beyond ALL you can ask or even imagine, and Ephesians 1:15 “For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, 16 I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, 18 having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,”

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your reading what I put her each week. I do not take for granted that you have a LOT of other places to spend your time.

Thank you for helping to make 2014 a wonderful year.

Andrea (Madden) Van Boven : I like to think I am a radical lover of Jesus, but I live in a house and pay bills and look like I fit in with respectable society, like most people. What goes on in my head and heart are hopefully the things that betray the look of "normal" that comes at first glance. I hope those things inside of me seep out to actions as well as words of hope and encouragement. I pray that these in turn will lead others to know the loving creator who knows us so intimately that he has a number for every hair on every head.
