“Bruce and I have been married for 33 years. We have two grown children, son and daughter.
We've lived the entrepreneurial life running brick and mortar and online retail businesses in the home and garden industry and most recently concurrently with Bruce's new career in real estate. I am the bookkeeper keeping all our ducks in a row on the bottom line.
I fellowship with a wonderful community of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and purpose to fulfill my ministry of encouragement and teaching as the Lord in His Spirit leads.”
A conversation I had, with one of my childhood friends, sent me on this journey of trying to release the child within me. God used my friend to let me look at myself in the mirror. I was ugly—unrecognisable. Resentment had consumed me and daily, a part of me was dying. I was shutting down mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
MEET OUR FEATURED WRITER FOR DECEMBER 2016 | JODY R GOODE:
We, in Christ, are not individually a finger, toe or even a solitary hair in the Body of Christ, but more a single cell. By faith and grace we are (re)born into a life of service for which this particular cell was created, in conjunction with all the other cells of His Body, to keep the Body alive and thriving so as to present 'God with us - Emmanuel' to all of the world dying for lack of Him.
We would like to thank all the relatives and friends who came to support our son at his thanksgiving concert. You've all helped us to celebrate him becoming a teenager. We couldn't have done it without your support. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR GIFTS (in the time you spent with him on the day, the gifts and cards you've sent for him and your words of encouragement). WE APPRECIATE YOU ALL!
