What’s Inspiring You This Week?
Here’s What’s Inspiring Me…

Inspiration From God’s Word
Today is Father’s Day – a day of celebration for some –
A day of painful memories for others.

Today I’d like to invite you to spend some quite time
Watching a special video called
“The Father’s Love Letter.”

This message changed my life and it could change yours too!

Stealing The Preacher by Karen Witemeyer

Stealing the Preacher

All Joanna Archer wanted for her 21st birthday was a preacher
To breathe new life into her town’s abandoned church and
To help her save her father’s soul!

How could she know that her  father
Would make her wishes come true –
By stealing a preacher the nearest train!

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer
