God’s Beloved Child


Sweet Hannah

This is our daughter Hannah. She is spunky and full of life! Her smile and energy make me thankful everyday that God gave her to us, as it was a long and windy road to motherhood. Of anyone in my life, Hannah has taught me the most about God’s love, and specifically God’s love for me. I often think about how much I love Hannah and God reminds me that He loves her even more than I do.

The truth is: God’s love for all of us is unimaginable! He cares for us even more than we love those most cherished in our lives. Maybe you need to be reminded of God’s love and how He tenderly watches over you like His own child.

Come away with us on Saturday, October 15th, 2016 to our Creative Gathering to be refreshed in God’s love for you. The Creative Gathering begins at 9:30 and goes to 4:30. We serve you a cozy Fall inspired lunch and afternoon snack. Register HERE  online or sign up at our made. table at First Presbyterian Church on Sunday mornings.

Inner Beauty



I  bent down to pick it up. It was small, and, at first glance, it didn’t appear to be anything special. It had just been discarded by a woman walking with a child on the beach not far ahead of me. I heard her tell the child that it was not very pretty and not worth keeping. When I picked the shell up and looked at the outside I saw that the woman was right – the outside was, indeed, not very beautiful. But when I turned it over it nearly took my breath away. For on the inside I saw a delicate, gentle beauty. Soft shades of coral and peach. Such beauty. Inner beauty. As I held the shell on my open palm and marveled at what God had created I was reminded that the LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart (I Samuel 16:7).

At our creative gatherings we encourage women to cultivate this inner beauty, their hearts, through creative projects, journaling, prayer, and music. On Saturday, October 15, 2016 we will be gathering to explore what it means to be God’s beloved. We hope you will join us!
