Here’s What’s Inspiring Me…
Our 100th Week Celebration
Thanks to all of you who joined us for our 100th week of Inspire Me Monday!
I am so excited to have shared this milestone with each of you!
Christmas may be the most wonderful time of the year for some –
But it can also be one of the most hectic for others.
Before we start today’s party, I’d like to invite you to
Sit down – take a deep breath – and spend a few moments
Reflecting on Shuji’s beautiful photography!

Christmas can also be one of the most difficult times of the year
For those who are alone, who are facing hardships of any kind,
Or are experiencing a season of grief.
Today I’d like to encourage you with an incredible story of hope –
The inspirational story of Horatio Spafford –
The hymn writer who wrote It Is Well With My Soul
And the circumstances under which the song was written.
Start The Year With A Good Book!
