Hello everyone!

Hello everyone! 

I hope this posting finds you enjoying this BEAUTIFUL day!  It’s hard to believe the leaves will soon be gone.  I was in Williamsburg over the past four days and the Fall colors were spectacular!

Our group has been small over the past two weeks.  I know some of you are world travelers (China and Europe!) and many of you have had various reasons for missing our Bible study (family, work, kids, etc.).   However….. I hope that you believe me when I tell you not to stay away if you are struggling with the homework!    There is no condemnation if you haven’t filled in all those blanks and read every word!!  Promise! 

I want you to know we miss YOU when you are not with us—you have a unique perspective that adds texture and insight to our discussion.

If you feel “out of the loop” after missing a few weeks have no fear!  We can keep you up to date through this blog.   Just scroll down and you will see all the dates for this Fall including Samaritans Purse, Ellie Lofaro (An evening in December) and a lovely Christmas brunch at Donna’s.  These events and activities are not to add to your list or stress you out!  Rather, we offer opportunities to serve, grow and enjoy the company of fellow sisters in Christ. 

In the spirit of our determination to grow (and glow!)  for Jesus, I will leave you with this wonderful verse about the fruit that comes when we intentionally commit to building our lives on Him!

Let your roots go down into
Christ, and let your lives be
built on Him. Then your faith
will grow strong in the truth
you were taught, and you will
overflow with thankfulness.
~ Colossians 2:7

Love to all,

PS. The DVD last night was powerful.  If you missed it, please view it online if you have time.


  1. From Jeanne Yaniga:
    Mark's cousin, Kathy Korona, is having a complete mastectomy today. She originally had breast cancer in October 2001. She had a lumpectomy, had chemo & radiation and has been fine until recently. The cancer is now back, in the same breast, and she's having it removed today. Also, to compound things, her son & his wife are expecting the first grandchild on November 21!

    I'd like for everyone to pray for a speedy recovery and complete healing this time! Kathy is full of life; she has a great husband and son and she's a nurse so she takes care of a lot of people!


  2. From Laura:
    Please pray for mydear childhood friend, Mary Lou, who has been very sick. She ended up in the Mayo Clinic for a week in September. She is better now, but has been diagnosed with a chronic, un-curable heart condiition.

    She must also take oxygen (as needed) to help with her breathing. She is only 52.
