Paul wrote, “[I am] confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 1:6 (NIV)

Our land is called “Rock Hill Farm” because of its 
never-ending supply of large stones. These stones have proven to be a nuisance over the years, but they have also given our structures and land great strength. We always have a need for them.

Loving the Insights

"I lead a small group of about 12 women, and we were looking for a great Advent study. I had used While We Wait years ago and remembered how beautifully written it was.

I love focusing on the women in the genealogy in Matthew and our church’s Advent sermon series include the songs of Elizabeth, Mary, and Zechariah. So this study seemed just perfect for our 2019 Advent study.

Everyone is enjoying it so much and loving the insights that Mary Lou Redding offers for each character in her study. While We Wait has been a great study for us!"
