Welcome to Grace to Joy

Welcome to 2020!  

I asked my Pastor-Teacher Dad, as we sat across the room with our laptops writing, if he would be teaching a series on seeing 20/20 in 2020, as I assume most pastors will be latching on to the catch phrase. He laughed and said he'd just deleted it from his screen. But here I sit, still caught with the idea of seeing 20/20. 

Seeing 20/20 is such a blessing. Even having corrected vision to 20/20 is a blessing! But what happens when we have the ability to see, but choose not to? What happens when we read in God's word that we are unconditionally loved, and still fill our mind with self hate?  What of the promises given by God that we refuse to see because they didn't come wrapped as we expected?  What do we do with verses like 2 Corinthians 3:5 that tells us we our adequacy is from God, and yet we live with the mindset that we will never be good enough? 

My prayer for 2020 is that we will be in the Word enough, and believe the Word enough, that we will realize in Christ we are enough! 

In 2020, may our vision be corrected to a perfect vision of what God intended for us, and our lives be fuller as we live in His amazing grace!

Philippians Bible Study

This 290 pg. workbook provides an in-depth Bible study of the book of Philippians.  Consisting of personal study time, five days a week for ten weeks, the workbook makes it possible to work at your own pace, or grab a girlfriend or two to work through it together.  Perhaps your church's ladies ministry would even choose to use this study, and meet weekly for discussion time. 

In the letter to the Philippian believers we find the Apostle Paul saying, "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say rejoice!"  This study will show how it's possible to have joy even when we don't understand the what, when, why, or how of a situation (and isn't life always full of situations?)  See how the Apostle Paul unlocks the secret of living in contentment and joy.  It's our prayer that it won't be long before you, too, are Finding His Joy.  

Workbook study is available through Amazon. $17.99     

Kindle Edition  Amazon Kindle $10.99

Or, add the Kindle addition for only $2.99 when you purchase the  workbook from Amazon.


One of the greatest blessings we've been given is God's word, but like  many things that are "good for us" we find ourselves not making the time to read it.  I hope these short devotionals will keep you inspired to be in the Word, and to live wholeheartedly for God.
