IMPOSSIBLE? NOT!

Susan with the Rescuing Hope Event Team

How has 2016 been for you so far? For me it has been like a fast moving train and I’ve been trying to keep up. I apologize for not posting last week. With the first Rescuing Hope Coffee House I was firing on all cylinders. I’ve been chewing on what I am about to share […]

WHAT DOES 2016 HOLD FOR YOU?

2016

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you had a fabulous Christmas and New Year celebration. I have loved every minute with my family. When I was younger I used to ask my mother what she wanted for Christmas. Her response was always the same, Don’t buy me anything. I just want time with my family.” That used […]

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Hope Spokane

Can you believe we are just a couple of days away from Christmas and then we’ll only have one more week left in 2015? Where does the time go? The older I get the faster time seems to travel. What things have you seen God do this year? What prayers have been answered? What are […]

What is your pastor teaching on during this Christmas season? Our church finished up a study of the book of Acts yesterday. Pastor Tom shared from Acts 27 and 28 yesterday. He talked of how Paul was on a ship caught in a horrible storm and it appeared all was lost, including the lives of […]

Do you collect anything at Christmas time? For a while I collected Christmas tea pots. That fad passed quickly and I switched to snowmen.

Thank YOU!

Thankful

It’s Thanksgiving week and I’m excited. Traffic on the interstates will soon be moving at a snail’s pace. Do you have to experience it? One year, traffic was so bad my younger brother turned his car off while sitting on the interstate to conserve gas. It’s crazy. Airports are equally as hectic. Not only are there thousands of […]

FEAR IS A FOUR LETTER WORD

Jason

Fear – it’s a four letter word, but for some reason, it’s one people tend to embrace more often than not. Many times in life we find the things we fear never come to pass. This weekend, we were blessed to have Jason Upton lead worship at Riverstone Church. It was a blessing not only to […]

Are you really thankful for THAT?

Give Thanks

What comes to mind when you think of November? Do you think about Thanksgiving or are you like American retailers and immediately jump from Halloween to Christmas? Do you think of Pilgrims and Indians, turkey, or pumpkin pie? One thing I miss about teaching elementary school is the large celebrations of any and every holiday. […]

What shapes you? What makes you who you are?

Mr. Rogers

Did you ever watch Mr. Rogers as a child? This morning as I signed onto Facebook to send out birthday greetings to friends, a clip from a Mr. Rogers episode caught my eye. The thought of that show takes me back to the living room of the house I grew up in on Saxon Court. […]
