Jesus said, “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.” - Matthew 7:24 (NRSV)
Following years of declining health, Daddy’s death was not unexpected, but it felt like the earth had shifted under my feet. I felt as if I were no longer standing on firm, level ground.
The funeral took place in the church Daddy attended all of his life, the same church...
What do my words and actions reveal about my faith in God?
Those grieving the loss of a parent

"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!"
