  9. Whoo healing service! I like the sound of that.

    I don' know if you've heard of Bethel church in Redding, CA or their ministry, but they just played a big part in a movie release called "Holy Ghost". It encouraged me to be more intentional about listening to the Holy Spirit as I go about my day and responding when he leads me to share, talk to,pray for, or just love on the people I come into contact with in my everyday life.

    It talks about healing too. I think you'd really like it :)

  13. Oooh I hope the adventure is fun!! :) It's so nice to have those things to look forward to at the beginning of the week - even if the week goes pear-shaped at least it's a light at the end of the workweek tunnel!

  23. well, i can't take credit...my mom made it! haha...she and my dad are vegan & sugar-free, and she loves granola but can't eat it because it's typically packed with sugar. so she made pb & chocolate, strawberry & almond, raisin & pecan, and walnut & apricot flavors! (she went to town!)

  27. I have! My dad is actually reading "The Healing Power of a Transformed Mind" right now, which was written by Bill Johnson, who's a pastor at Bethel!
    I'll need to check into that movie...sounds awesome! Our church has a healing ministry that meets every Wednesday night and my dad has been going to appointments with them for the past year. One of the guys who participates in that ministry actually has a brother that attends Bethel!
