Be still, and know that I am God! - Psalm 46:10 (NRSV)
I anticipated a hectic day at work, juggling meetings and projects with deadlines. Even lunchtime was set aside for a working meeting. I decided to jot down a plan listing what tasks I would tackle in which hour. I could get everything done if I stuck to my agenda, but...
When I set aside a time to rest with God, I can better serve the rest of the day.

"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!"
