A Monday TREAT!!!


We Are Hard Pressed on Every Side but NOT CRUSHED NOT IN DESPAIR ...


I have added free devotional downloads to my website. Print them out and do them with a group over Facetime or alone in your quiet time with God. Pass the link around to anyone you know needs a little encouragement. There is even one for kids/families on the book of James that includes some grammar, writing, etc. practice now that all moms are homeschool moms.

A few more wonderful resources for encouragement are:

Listen to our Podcast – The Sinner and The Saint – this week is called Aye, Corona.

Watch past messages or the current series live each weekend at Hope Community Church.

My favorite author, Kelly Minter, has an excellent seven-day devotional for encouragement through the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 6) called the blessed life.

Message from Hope Community Pastor Donnie Peters on worry.


We are hard-pressed, but not CRUSHED!

This is the verse I’m clinging to. God is in control and through Him, we have life, hope, joy and peace within us! No one can take that away from you, but we can easily forget, toss it aside or ignore it. My prayer is that we keep His promises and love front and center in our hearts and minds.

2 Corinthians 4:8-12 (NIV)
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.
