Welcome to Grace to Joy

No matter what you are going through right now, take HOPE in this fact - GOD LOVES YOU. 

You might be thinking He has an odd way of showing it, but just let scripture remind you. 

 - In Christ Jesus you have been justified before the Judge of all judges. 

 - You have peace with the God of all holiness and righteousness as you stand in His grace given for you.

 - These trials are not without purpose. Tribulation brings about perseverance. Perseverance brings about proven character, and proven character brings HOPE. 

"And HOPE does not disappoint, 

because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts

through the Holy Spirit who was given to us."  

Romans 5:5

God's love isn't just dabbed here and there on our life. He's not a stingy god. He literally pours His love out on us through His Spirit. God's Spirit, given to us when we place our faith in the work Christ Jesus did on the cross. God's great grace toward us who were sinners. 

Oh yes, He loves us. And because God loves us, we can have hope. 

If I can pray for you at all, just click on the prayer form. I'd be privileged to carry you before God, as so many others have done for me in those times. 

God bless you and welcome to Grace to Joy. 


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.
