Ladies' Event and Some Quiche
Several from church including Marilyn and me recently attended a ladies' event at a nearby church. We were led in music worship by a former young man who was at our home church for a few years. The key note speaker was Carol Kent. We had heard her a couple of years ago, and we were pretty excited to get to hear her again.
I have read a couple of her books and would strongly encourage anyone to read about this lady's testimony. A good place to start is with her book, "Now I Lay My Isaac Down."
Here's the official description taken from her site:
When God calls us to lay down the place, ministry or even the person we love most on the sacrificial altar, how will we respond? When her only son committed murder Carol Kent was forced to lay the person she valued most, or her "Isaac," in the hands of God. Fortunately, like Abraham before her, in the midst of her terrible sacrifice Carol encountered the God who loves her more than she loves her Isaac and she learned, little by little, to trust her Isaac to His caring hands. If you or someone you love is in the process of laying down an "Isaac," you will find Carol's heart-wrenching story and godly guidance absolutely indispensable.
No more spoiler alerts.....just encouragement to read it!
