Christian healing

Healing happens! I wanted a place to share the sweet stories of God's grace and power that people send to me. Lift up your heart with joy to the Lord! Rejoice, be glad, and praise God's wonderful works to the children of men.

The blessing of sharing Bible stories for children

We have been vacationing in Michigan and Canada in July, seeing a lot of friends and family. One afternoon, I was about 300 yard from shore in Lake Huron with a niece and one of her third cousins. They were diving for "good" rocks on the sandbar. I laughed and said it sounded like the story of the tares and the wheat in the Bible. They gave me blank looks so I told them the story. Turns out, neither of these 14-year-olds had never been to ANY Sunday school. I shared the story of the Good Samaritan, David and Goliath, and Daniel in the lion's den. They loved the stories -- and told their folks they want to go to Sunday school. I plan to follow up with letters with more Bible stories!
