Church Life

Posted by | Balance, Pastors' Wives | No Comments

We don’t have to be in ministry long until we realize we all get caught up in numbers and the size of our church.

Here we are three weeks into 2019 and you may still be reflecting on this past year and what God has done in your life or maybe you are reflecting on some of the unexpected things that happened in your life this past year. Whatever the case may be, none of us know what the year ahead holds. So I want to encourage you that when the “unexpected” comes along, accept the situation immediately. If not, it can turn into…
