Grandchildren and discipleship

Marla Fields on September 2, 2020

During the months of March-June Paul and I had discipleship with our oldest 7 grandchildren by zoom. We met twice a week with the younger two separately and then at a different hour with the older five. It was a blessing to us to have that input into their lives during a time in our lives when social distancing was required. We are in prayer for each of our 10 grandchildren for their walk with God to continue to grow and in the case of the youngest ones to come to that place of trusting Christ for salvation.

Transitions - mine and hers

A new Bible - diary - and devos notebook

Marla Fields on January 1, 2020

2020 is a new year with new things with which to begin. A new Bible to read daily, a new diary to journal the year, and a new devotional notebook, These will be my faithful companions. I don't doubt that I will reach my goals to read God's Word daily, nor to write in my diary daily. My devos notebook will be a little different from last year, but I am excited about the plan I am undertaking. But there are hopes and dreams for 2020 that I didn't strive for in 2019 that I plan and pray for this...
