And she appears to be fully in charge of her space. Mary is in junior high. She wears Wal-Mart or Old Navy clothes at best.

God, the breath of every living thing, becomes embryo. God, whose hand scoops out oceans, floats in a fetal sac. God, who feeds all living things, is hungry.

Sort order. Oct 18, Shannon rated it it was amazing Shelves: faith , non-fiction. Found this so very readable and quite instructive in its call to living out your faith in Jesus. The author is a minister with much experience, stories he draws from as examples throughout.
He is grounded in experience and the Word and most importantly in obedience to the Word of The Lord. I would read it again, there is more wisdom to glean!
