Remembering the Roots of Thankfulness

by  Barbara Latta

The Bible is filled with verses telling us to be thankful. God knows our hearts, apart from
Puritans suffered months of hardship at sea.
Him, will revert to selfishness so He continues to remind us that being thankful will bring peace to our souls.

In 1620 a group of travelers set sail for a new life apart from the religious persecution that had been inflicted upon them. These people were so hungry for the ability to worship God according to biblical standards and not the edict of the King of England, they were willing to endure months at sea, lack of food, sickness, storms, cold and cramped quarters because what they wanted was worth the hardship. Now hundreds of years later, we benefit from their sacrifices and the others who followed them and settled this country.

New Book Release

by Barbara Latta

Abba's Promise is available November 17.

The Bible tells us of many instances where God has provided for His people. He tells us in Philippians 4:19 "and my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” and that if we give our gift is multiplied back to us (Luke 6:38).

Abba’s Promise is a compilation of stories outlining God’s amazing provision. Cross River Media releases this book on November 17 and it will also be available on Amazon.

Reading the experiences of other people as they walk through miracles of having needs met will encourage your faith and strengthen you as you believe for the blessing you need.

Giving this book as Christmas gift would be a great daily reminder for a friend or loved one of our Lord's love and promise to take care of us. 

Share some of your stories of God's provision.

  • The voting public to have eyes opened to the deceit going on in our government.

  • That our elected officials who don't know God will turn to Him.

We the people need to pray.

  • That those being elected will follow godly principles.

We the people need to speak.
We the people need to pray.
We the people need to vote.

God bless America!
