What the Enemy Meant for Harm, God Turned for GOOD!

God is good!  All the time!  And all the time, God is GOOD! 

As I mentioned in the last blog, we signed the lease and a new chapter has begun.   We are officially moved in.  We were able to do the entire apartment in one weekend and we emptied our storage unit one night last week.  We had our walk through and praise God, they returned the deposit money back.   That chapter is OVER!!   I have been praying and seeking the Lord earnestly as to what caused our previous landlords to treat us the way they did.  I have no revelation.  The only comfort I get from the Lord is that what the enemy meant for harm to us, He turned for good!  And He did.  The house we are in, though not perfect is spacious.  We have lots of storage space, we have a room we will make into a guest room at some point and we have a big enough living room to accommodate our home group (and parking is even better).  I am so thankful!!   God has been so gracious to us this past week.  We have a friend who offered up a buffet cabinet which we are now using in our dining room to host the coffee station for our home group.  I have another lovely friend who is giving us her beautiful mahogany dining room table and 6 chairs (with 3 leaves so it can seat 15) and she is going to refabric the chairs to our decor at her own expense.  Such a gift.   We had a couple of unexpected checks come in the mail and so now we can cover our October rent.  WE are so THANKFUL!!!   God is faithful to meet our every need.  I can't say it's easy to walk in faith and trust God for provision again.....but He is showing me I can.  

We have met several of our new neighbors. They are all super nice and they seem to look after each other.  That is awesome.  One is a hoarder.  I was told that things don't leave her but people do and that's why.  So sad.  I am praying for a ministry opportunity there.   We have an 80 year old lady who lives on the back of our property = her apartment is attached to our detached garage.  She has cancer and is a Jehovah Witness.  I believe God placed us right in the middle of all this so we can be a bright light and bring healing and hope.  I'm looking forward to getting to know them and sharing God's love!  


Another blessing that came this week was from Ken's boss.  He brought us 25# of beef from his own raised cattle. Delicious!  And he agreed to Ken taking the time off for us to go to Cancun in November.  I won that trip - all inclusive, all expense paid for two.  We are excited as we have not had a tropical vacation since 2011.  I felt like when I won the trip, the Lord said this was His gift to us.  I am so THANKFUL! 

I just want to thank you - those who pray for us consistently.  That blesses me more than words can express.  I don't always see what God is doing but behind the scenes He is obviously working.  So thank you for nudging Him with your prayers.   Thank you for those who reach out with texts or emails.  That is so awesome to be on the receiving end knowing that God placed us on your heart.  Thank you for


listening and being obedient.   

I would like to ask for prayer for a few things.  

1.  I have quite a few friends dealing with some serious health issues.  I've been praying for them for a long time.  I don't understand why God hasn't healed them.  One person was sent home to die within days over a year ago.  And she is still living and is in good spirits, but she suffers greatly.  Another has battled cancer and won and now it's back again.  There are too many to list but if you wouldn't mind just coming into agreement for complete divine healing, that would be awesome.  

2.  For an increase in income/provision.  I would love to see my Thrive Life business grow.  It is, but slower than I would like.  I need to find a way to meet more people.   I do have a friend who is going to have a Tasting Party and invite her friends.  That is the best way for me.  So, if you would like to host a tasting party, let me know.  Even if we are not in the same town, I can still do this with you.  This is a great way to earn free food and begin your food pantry for emergencies or everyday easy meal prep.  michelecole.thrivelife.com.   

3.  For continued healing.  I do believe God is healing me.  I am having less pain (most of the time). I still am restricted in my knee and have horrible feet pain from plantar fasciitis.    I have been doing aquatic classes for a month or so and I believe that is helping some.  I am also getting 6 hours of sleep most nights.  That is good for me.  I would like more.  Pray for continued motivation to get up at 6am and head to the pool.   

4.  Prayer for ministry opportunities with our neighborhood.  Prayers for those God will bring to our home group that we can minister too.  

Please let me know how I can pray for you.  I am thankful for those who reach out with prayer requests.   


Hugs, love and prayers.

Vision

God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.  

The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted).  We will offer private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord. 

We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating people into the world & health and wellness retreats and more.  

The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers.  We are not wanting to replace their church, but better help them be ready to serve in their church. 

In our community building - we will eventually have a 24/7 prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.  

Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world.   To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas.  Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more souls into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!!  We also have a passion to give generously to help those in need and to help others launch into their God given destinies.

New Chapter Begins!!!


Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. Psalm 136:1

Whew!!!  A new chapter in our lives begins!!  We signed our new lease last night.  I feel a weight has already lifted!!   We are 99.9% packed and will begin moving things in tonight - and tomorrow will be our big moving day!  Thankful as we have I think 6 men to help us and several women, so it should go pretty quick.  I am so thankful for the friends who have come alongside us to help with the packing and even the beginning of cleaning the cabinets and drawers.  Many hands make things lighter.  So thankful.   I am thankful for the new home, the previous tenants cleaned the house amazingly.  The new landlord seems to be a super flexible landlord accommodating a few things.  He will be an absent landlord as he travels overseas 6 months of the year, but he says, if anything needs to get done, just do it and deduct from rent.  There are a few quirks that we will have to work through but nothing too daunting.   The only thing a little overwhelming is the rent being doubled. The landlord could get $2500 for it - but is only charging us $1500 plus utilities.  To me spending that much money on a rental is more than I care too.  I would prefer to use it for giving into the Kingdom... but God's ways are not ours.  He seems to keep reminding me of that.  LOL!!! 

Here's a picture of the outside of our new rental home.  It's 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2 car detached garage and a bonus room that's attached to the garage.  It has plenty of space for parking out front and on the left side of it which will be super for our home group.     Definitely an upgrade! 

The home group we have is multiplying fast.  We may need God to supernaturally expand this home for us.  Lol!!  

Thank you to those who have prayed for us!!  Please continue to pray for provision and for an increase in income!   Please pray for favor with our existing landlord with the walk thru so we can get our earned deposit back.  God is faithful and I know He will provide!  He always has!! 

Please let me know how I can pray for you - and how I can celebrate God's goodness with you! 

Hugs, love and prayers.

Leap of Faith - Anti-climatic!

The Bible tells us that we are to walk by faith and not by sight.  2 Corinthians 5:7  

Transparency alert..........

I am thankful for the ONLY open door God has provided with our housing situation.  In just 10 days we will moving into a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house with extra large bonus room and 2 car detached garage....and a large fenced yard.  That is double the space we have now.  I am thankful for the new landlord who has said he will not raise rents.  (That's what our existing landlord said too).  The new one has been easy to work with so far and quite flexible.  The rent and utilities are DOUBLE what we pay now and unless God opens doors of income, we are upside down big time.  That is not a comfortable place to be.  However, this is the ONLY choice we have...  and we have to trust that God is leading us this direction.  Oh - did I tell you we have a sexual predator right across the street from this new place?  

He promises to meet all of our needs.  Phil 4:19.   We have to have $3750 by 8/20.   We have just a small amount right now.  We have an open insurance claim for hail damage we had while in KC.  We are awaiting reply to see if we can just not repair our car and take the cash?   It's been a month with no response yet with continued follow up.   

Ken feels like we are stepping backwards.  It's obvious he's frustrated about this.  He made the comment that it seems that "professing Christians" have caused us the most angst, stress & hurt in our lives!    I am just confused.  Why did God tell me in April, He was taking my Facebook income away and then did when that would pay our new rent.   I'm confused because for the past two years, we finally made enough income that we could pay our bills and enjoy a little on the side.  We have lived by faith financially since 2005.  He has always been faithful to provide in different ways, but the toll it takes on you when you have to be utterly dependent on Him to pay bills or buy groceries is real.  I know that's part of our walk and it's confusing for others too.   We have to continue to believe He will take care of us.  This whole move is anti-climatic.  No excitement, no motivation other than we have to get out of dodge!   

I am struggling with feelings of anger and frustration at our existing landlords.  I was talking with someone in our home group and she said she was going through the same emotions towards them too.  The tension around here (they live next door) is thick.  They avoid us, run into their home when we come out and passive aggressive behavior.  It is just unreal.  We have no idea what changed in their minds or hearts - but it sure seems demonic. The only communication we have with them is through their attorney.   I go back and forth - praying for them  and then having thoughts of ill will.  I have to continuously forgive them.  Now I truly know what Joseph felt when he was sent to jail for something he didn't even do.   Thankful we aren't going to jail...but the prison of added financial stress is almost as bad.  

On the brighter side - we are almost 1/2 packed.  I've had a few friends come to help me during the day. Most of the rest can't be done until we decide to eat off paper plates and not cook.  LOL.   We also have 2 trucks and trailers along with a few men to help with the move.  That will help as we won't have to rent a Uhaul.    

I do see God's hand in all this.  Really - we've been praying for God to bring us into a bigger place to accommodate all that He is having us do!  That I'm thankful for!  It truly is a miracle that this house for the price became available and how it came to our attention was an answer to prayer.  We didn't have to qualify our income.  He didn't call our existing landlord because who know what they would have said about us.  He only checked our credit and background which of course we passed with flying colors!  The location (though in town) is convenient.   And yet, He still has 8 days before we sign the lease.... and would love to see BREAKTHROUGH in stepping into DESTINY - the RETREAT property.   ??? That would be our prayer still........ 


I am thankful for the many of you who reach out to us and share that you are praying for us!   It touches me deeply.   I cry often in thanksgiving to God for you!  

I am thankful that God promises a future and a hope!   

I am thankful that He is faithful no matter what we are going though!   

Please let me know how I can pray for you - and how I can celebrate God's goodness with you! 

Hugs, love and prayers.

A Possibility! PRAYERS NEEDED PLEASE!

 I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David;what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.  Isaiah 22:22 

Today, I received a text from a local pastor I had reached out to about housing.  She told me about a rental that was coming available in just 2 weeks.  We have to be out in 3 weeks.  We went and looked at it.  It's definitely doable as far as space and location.  However, the rent and utility bills would be double what we pay now.  But it's a place we could be comfortable.   It's at least $1000 below what most are going for! 

We need wisdom and provision to make this decision! We need $4000 just to sign a lease.  We need to make the decision quickly as there are so many people looking for a place to rent.  And yet, we don't want to get ahead of God and make a rash decision out of desperation.  

There is NOTHING else that is available that we know of YET.   

Would you please be in prayer for us and if the Lord would show you anything that would help us, please share.   

Please pray that God would open doors to increase my Thrive income.  This is what both Ken and I really feel God is leading me to do.  And having this house we would have the space and ability to host tasting parties!   Thrive is getting ready to launch across the United States & even worldwide all by 2024!  They have 7 new meals (2 available now) that are just add hot water & eat in 15 minutes.  No fillers.  We got to taste 6 of the 7 and all are good!  I am so impressed with this company - they are proactive, intentional and high integrity!  Simply the best.   And with continued food shortages looming - did you hear the government is paying farmers to NOT grow food.  We all need to have supply - 1- 2 years minimum is what they recommend.  michelecole.thrivelife.com 

Please let me know how I can pray for you - and how I can celebrate God's goodness with you! 

Hugs, love and prayers.

PUSH!!!

This morning as I was waking up around 4am.... the Lord spoke and said your baby is crowning... PUSH!! 


In the natural when a woman is giving birth to a baby, the crowning stage means the baby is born usually within the hour. It's painful and difficult but requires perseverance and the ability to PUSH with all you have. 

In June, a lady in our home group had a vision for me. She said she saw my baby in the birth canal. And then she saw me give birth to a healthy baby. My landlord's wife, who attended our home group, when she heard that, said when she came up the stairs and saw me, I was glowing and she knew I was about to give birth. 

This week I feel like it's been in the birth canal. It's dark and very narrow. It's pressure from all sides. I have shed many tears. 

My mother when she had me & my twin brother - she used to say all the time, that she went into the valley of the shadow of death with us. It gave me such a fear of childbirth, so much so that I never wanted to go through that, hence no children. This week though more spiritual as I'm not really pregnant, has made me feel like I'm in the valley of the shadow of death. On one hand terrifying-and on the other exhilarating anxiously awaiting God to intervene and deliver this baby.  

I believe many of us are here in some way or another. Our circumstances have been crushing us, squeezing us and shaping us for birth. If any encouragement, I believe we are "crowning" and our babies will be born soon. 

Isaiah 66:9 Do I bring to the moment of birth and not give delivery?” says the LORD. “Do I close up the womb when I bring to delivery?” says your God.

We are just about 3 weeks away with no place to land (yet).  The few rentals that are available we don't quality for.   Property management companies here require

applications that take up to a week to approve or not...and an application fee for every rental you look at.  They also require that your net income is 3x the rent price, and that disqualifies us for anything.   

God is faithful - and HE will make a way.  We are trusting Him and confessing His promises over our situation.  I am thankful for those who are reaching out with encouraging words, scriptures and prayer.   

I talked to our landlord's attorney this week and asked if he would allow us to stay until we found a new place and that we were looking.  Our landlord said emphatically NO!!!!!   Do you know what else is cool.  I reached out to the guy who "served" our get out dodge letter to see how the envelope was placed in our home without our knowledge.  Anyways, he said he was a Christian and that he would be praying for us too!  How awesome is that.  

God really is keeping every door shut except the ONE He will open.   Isaiah 22:22.     We have everyone we know looking for us.  Even Ken's boss gave a paint bid to someone recently and saw they had a guest house.  He asked the owners if they would consider renting it.  They said no.  God has assured me we won't be homeless....though many really are here.  There are quite a few that live in their cars.  Some live in RV's in parking lots with no water or electric.  Yellowstone TV has really made it difficult for most of us.  They come in and snatch up rentals at prices landlords and sellers can't refuse.  Rumor is they move on the end of October.  I sure hope so!  For those that don't know - Yellowstone the TV show is filmed and housed here in our valley.   Every day they are shutting down roads to film.  It is great for the business owners but not for anyone else.   Also, there are NO storage units available - we are on a waiting list everywhere.   We have a storage unit with this landlord too... and so much to move - where? 

Here's a praise report!   We sold our timeshares.... yes both of them. The only thing is that they will be making payments (which will be great) but they don't start until later in the year.    As I've been packing, I've been selling off little things that we don't need.  I made a whopping $90 yesterday!  Whoohoo! 

Please pray for stamina and sleep!  Ken and I have been both waking up between 2-4am since we got the news.  Ken works all day and then comes home to pack.. and I am packing some each day while he's gone.   

Please agree in prayer for - provision for the vision - God's perfect plan, open doors  and place He has for us!   

Please let me know how I can pray for you - and how I can celebrate God's goodness with you! 

Hugs, love and prayers.

Here We GO!!! Need a MIRACLE!!

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”  Mark 10:27 

We arrived home today from Utah from the Thrive Life Convention.... more on that on another blog..  to find that our landlord entered our apartment without notice and had an envelope from his attorney inside.  The letter inside has given us 30 day notice to vacate property.   

We are shocked, but then again not really.  By his actions last week in raising our rent $200 (22.22%) and telling us we are not allowed to have company over 2 people nor have our bible study anymore, this really isn't much of a surprise.   Him entering our property is illegal and telling us we can't have our religious meeting is illegal.  We are seeking counsel on this.

What we do know -  these next 30 days are going to be difficult at best.  We have to pack not only our apartment but our storage unit (he owns that too) and find a place to move.  There is still NOTHING available to rent that is in our price range.  We don't really have anyone that can take us in.   Hotels, motels and airbnb's are full with traveler's.   We are in between a rock and hard place.  But God!!!  With HIM all things are possible.  

We will be on our knees until He opens the door!   

Would you please pray in agreement with us for the OPEN DOOR that GOD has for us!!  

Would you please pray in agreement that we can move out peacefully and without chaos - last minute?  

Would you please pray in agreement that this is really the launch into our PURPOSE, CALL AND DESTINY!!!  

Would you please pray for ALL needed provision!

Please reach out if you hear anything that could help us.  We are so thankful for the body of Christ!  We love each of you and am thankful for your care!   Below are some ways you can help if you feel led. 

-----

1.  Facebook Marketing - This is where I help market your business or ministry on Facebook.  I have had 30+ years sales and marketing and the last 8 years doing Facebook. I took over 40 hours of training and am still actively pursuing further knowledge on how to increase traffic to your page and build a customer base.  I have had huge success with several companies over the years.  I am really geared towards small business.   So if you know of anyone who might want my services, I'd love to chat.

2.  I am actively doing Thrive Life - long term food storage.   This is great for people who don't like the preparation to cook meals everyday, great for singles & families - no waste, fresh food.  25 year shelf life unopened & 1 year opened (with just a few exceptions).   Kids even love this - they'll eat vegetables right out of the can.   This food is amazing!  You can buy other products in the big box stores or online, but if you were to compare side by side - you would find this is far superior in quality and nutrition.  Thrive Life is the leading company out there.  They are proactive -and offer non-gmo, organic and mostly organic (some items they haven't paid for that label as to keep prices down).   They are a great company to work for.  For those that know me, know I am a foodie.   I've tried many other companies brands before I found this and this is the product I believe in and KNOW is good!   

With the ever increasing need to be prepared, food shortages, inflation, this is something I feel the Lord has asked me to be committed to.  You can check out my website at https://michelecole.thrivelife.com.   There are 3 ways that help me.        You can have a tasting party - and I can do it even long distance - over zoom! 

     a.  Be a customer - start a monthly delivery (can skip months) with a budget you can afford and prepare for what's here and coming.    If you bought from me before but went inactive, we can reactivate your account under my name.    By choosing monthly delivery  over $99 you get free shipping & a 15% discount.  They offer monthly sales that are worth looking at too!   Even the news channels are reporting to expect food shortages!!!!!  

     b.  Refer people to my website who may want to store food.  If you are a customer, you get a referral link.  When you share that link -you get discounts and free food when they order.  (a lady here had earned $1000+ in free food) 

     c.  Become a consultant - hear me out - you don't have to sell unless you want too.  People become consultants for several reasons.  One - they get paid 5% on everything they spend over $50. Did you hear that - you get paid on your own orders.  Two - if you share with friends and family you can build a residual income & earn free food.  Especially in the first 100 days.  Three - some (me) are wanting this to be a way to earn serious cash.  Yes, this is a MLM company - but there compensation plan can be quite lucrative.  I'm still learning all about this... there are some consultants who are "inactive" and still making 6 figures off residual sales  That would be my goal - not to be inactive -but to make a nice living so we can really step into full time ministry when God opens that door.  This would fund that!  

3.  We are trying to sell our timeshares.  We have two.  We have moved away from the area and there is no chance we will get back to use them.  

     Branson - http://rocklane.com/branson-yacht-club/

     2 bedroom, 2 full bath - sleeps 6, full amenities, kitchen, wifi - on the lake - beautiful views.  Down the street from Silver Dollar City.  Quite, peaceful location.   You get to use it 1 week every ODD year for life (but they are flexible on that).  You can also break it up to 3 nights and 4 nights in any given year.  Annual dues $330.  We are asking $5000 (includes closing costs).  Will consider other offers.  You can rent it out when not using yourself and get $500-$750 a week.  We've done that often throughout the years.  This is something you own and can pass down through inheritance.  You can also subscribe to RCI and trade this week for anywhere else.  We did that a couple of times. Branson has great trading ability.  

    Lake of the Ozarks -       http://www.lakeview-resort.com

    This is a studio condo- sleeps 4 - but more comfortable for just 2.  Kitchen & bath.  On the lake - full amenities.  Great out of the way location.  Annual dues $230.  We are asking $3500 (includes closing costs).  This is 1 week a year anytime for life.  



Please let me know how I can pray for you - and how I can celebrate God's goodness with you! 

Hugs, love and prayers.

Vision

God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.  

The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted).  We will offer private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord. 

We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating people into the world & health and wellness retreats and more.  

The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers.  We are not wanting to replace their church, but better help them be ready to serve in their church. 

In our community building - we will eventually have a 24/7 prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.  

Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world.   To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas.  Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more souls into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!!  We also have a passion to give generously to help those in need and to help others launch into their God given destinies.

Peaceful, Secure & Undisturbed!

My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest. Isaiah 32:18  NIV 


Back in October 2017, our pastor's wife gave us a Thomas Kincaid wall tapestry.  It had this scripture on it.  It's a picture of a cabin in the woods in the mountains.  It has a waterfall like stream coming down the mountain into a pond.  Just looking at it brings so much peace and comfort (obviously intended).    When we got this beautiful gift we lived in Missouri.  It definitely didn't fit the decor of our home then.  It was the verse that jumped out at me and has been the verse for our vision since.   

Yesterday, the Lord took Ken to the verse but in a different translation (the one above) as it applies to our current housing situation.   It is a promise God has given us long before we knew we needed it.  It is a promise for those who will refuge on the property He has for us when the vision comes to fulfillment.   

Just a few days ago I blogged on our circumstances.  Since then, I have seen such peace and comfort knowing that God is leading us and guiding us right into His purposes.  We have no idea what that looks like exactly..... but we do feel a peace that maybe a door will open for destiny.  

Saturday we spent the entire day making phone calls, driving up and down and all around this 90 mile valley looking for a place we could land.  Not one door has opened.  

Yesterday He said to me..... you can knock on as many doors as you want and they will not open.....because I will open the door that you didn't have to knock on.   That's a pretty cool statement and a reassurance that it won't be in our strength or efforts.  It's difficult to let go - and trust in this situation, but we feel that is what He is saying.  Just praise Him.  Just offer thanks and gratitude for what He has done and what He will do.  And I don't mean JUST - but I mean make that a habit.  We are keeping our eyes focused on Him.  

Like the Israelites when they crossed the Jordan, the Lord had them put up stones as a reminder of what He did.   These past few days I've been reminded and thanking Him for similar situations.   When we were moving from Kansas City to El Dorado Springs, MO - the movers called the night before they were coming to move us and asked where they were moving us.  We didn't know in that moment.  The next day when they arrived, we knew this - move to store.  We had to live 3 weeks in someone else's home until the home in Eldo opened.     The next time was moving out of that house and into the next one.  The landlords sold the house out from underneath us with a lease in place.  It was a Wednesday and we had to be out by Sunday.  We had no place to go.  Similar to here in the sense that there was NOTHING that was even remotely rentable.  Long story short - the house we moved in was up for sale and the owner did NOT want to rent it again.  He had just spent 10K fixing it up from their mess and wanted it sold.  We shared our story and on Saturday at 12pm we began to move in.  We were out in just the knick of time.   When we were moving from Missouri to Montana... no doors were opening in 3 years... we knocked.  Folks wouldn't rent to us because we didn't have jobs there and we couldn't get a job in Montana without living here.  Such a catch 22.  But when God said GO - he opened the door to where we are living now!  It just came open!!   He is faithful! 

These are testimonies of God's faithfulness in our lives..and He has prepared us for this time - though we are not excited to walk through it.  The tension here is thick.  I won't go into details but it's so out of character for them and ungodly.  All we can do is heap coals on them in the spirit - by asking God to bless them and bring peace.  WE know that what the enemy meant for harm, God will turn for GOOD!   

So thankful for the many of you who reached out and shared that you are praying for us.  We are grateful beyond words.  I mean that sincerely.  We have such a peace from your prayers.  Please continue as you feel led!   We are reaching a place to be peaceful, secured & undisturbed as the Scripture says - in our current home... and am believing God will take us to our next home that will be even more peaceful, secure & undisturbed.   Thank you Lord! 

Oh and here's some good news.  I got two emails from Corporate Thrive Life this week.  One they are going to recognize/acknowledge my success at the Convention this weekend.  And two they asked me to be on a panel with other consultants sharing.  What an honor.  I don't really desire or need public recognition, but the Lord showed me that He wanted me to see this as His favor on my life - and that we are up for promotion!   Cool!   Please pray for safe travels - as w are traveling through Salmon, ID and there are raging fires threatening to close the highway.  

Please reach out if you hear anything that could help us.  We are so thankful for the body of Christ!  We love each of you and am thankful for your care!   Below are some ways you can help if you feel led.
