Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2nd Annual Retreat

We enjoyed time at Cafe Chocolat where we  reflected on God's extravagant grace on November 1-2, 2013. 

"We praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear son." Ephesians 1:6

The Christmas Candle By Max Lucado

(Christian Fiction)

The Christmas Candle is also coming to theaters Friday, November 22nd!

Journey back to a simpler time, to a small English village where nothing out of the ordinary ever happens. Except at Christmastime.

When a mysterious angel suddenly appears in a lowly candlemaker's shop, the holy and the human collide in a way that only God could imagine.

Glowing bright with a timeless message, The Christmas Candle will warm your heart with a surprising reminder of God's bountiful love.

is deceitful and beauty is passing,

but a woman who fears
the Lord, she shall be praised.

Proverbs 31:30


Our Scriptural foundation...

Proverbs 31:10-31

10 A competent wife, how does one find her? Her value is far above pearls. 11 Her husband entrusts his heart to her, and with her he will have all he needs. 12 She brings him good and not trouble all the days of her life. 13 She seeks out wool and flax; she works joyfully with her hands. 14 She is like a fleet of merchant ships, bringing food from a distance. 15 She gets up while it is still night, providing food for her household, even some for her female servants. 16 She surveys a field and acquires it; from her own resources, she plants a vineyard.
17 She works energetically; her arms are powerful. 18 She realizes that her trading is successful; she doesn’t put out her lamp at night.
19 She puts her hands to the spindle; her palms grasp the wheel.
20 She reaches out to the needy; she stretches out her hands to the poor. 21 She doesn’t fear for her household when it snows, because they are all dressed in warm clothes. 22 She makes bedspreads for herself; fine linen and purple are her clothing. 23 Her husband is known in the city gates when he sits with the elders of the land.
24 She makes garments and sells them; she supplies sashes to traders. 25 Strength and honor are her clothing; she is confident about the future. 26 Her mouth is full of wisdom; kindly teaching is on her tongue.  27 She watches over the affairsof her household; she doesn’t eat the food of laziness. She is vigilant over the activities
28 Her children bless her; her husband praises her 29 "Many women act competently, but you surpass them all!" 30 Charm is deceptive and beauty fleeting, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
31 Let her share in the results of her work; let her deeds praise her in the city gates.
