In February, Ines was invited to speak with three other women at Fellowship Monrovia’s monthly Women Are gathering. You can watch all four or if you want to skip to Ines’ message, it begins at 37 minutes.
The Bible I hold now in my hands is not the same Bible I brought with me cross country this past fall. The woman typing on this keyboard is not the same woman that drove across the desert gripping the wheel, pursuing a dream, knowing that she was ten feet behind, had ten feet to […]
(above: “Raise your hands if your having fun!” The kids take in the view from the Chantry Flats Heliport in the Angeles National Forest – San Gabriel Mountains.)
