Ready to jump in? Why not take a picture of your rainy day shoes (or you know... boots, flip-flops, bare feet... whatever!) E-mail your photo to And we'll post them with your first name along the side-bar.

Can't wait to study with you!!!

I'm focusing on God's steadfastness & faithfulness -- that He's always there & always dependable (although "dependable" is certainly an inadequate way to put it). "KNOWING" that - putting it into action - requires that I don't always play it safe. It means that, when led by Him, I put myself out there beyond my comfort zone - beyond ME altogether - because my ending point (when I've done all I can do through self-reliance) is His starting point for amazing "God things" when I place my trust in HIM! - Amy
