You've come to my personal website, designed primarily to provide information related to Biblical counseling and the ladies Bible teaching ministry that I am engaged in.
Feel free to browse, whether you are a friend or unknown visitor. May you find something of encouragement and enjoy your visit. Included in the menu is a little section about my rose garden for those of you who have an interest in growing roses. I find some of my best spiritual illustrations in the garden, so it gets mentioned in lectures often and is a favorite spot for rest and refreshment!
I am constantly impressed by the beauty and wonder of roses. Walking in the garden makes me ever more appreciative of the gracious and awesome Creator God we serve! What a marvel that we are given the privilege of being laborers together with Him, and are also given the tools, resources and abilities needed for our work.
So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building. (I Corinthians 3:7-9)
Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord. According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue. Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises; that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust [sinful desires]. (2 Peter 1:2-4)
