Today we hear stories of learning to suffer well from three different people. Thanks to Rick Nelson, Wanda Nelson, and Molly Perkins for sharing God's word and their experiences of walking through valleys.
Today we have Will Droogsma our worship leader preaching about what we can hold on to not if, but when tragedy, suffering, and pain turn our world upside down. I took a lot out of it and I hope you do too.
So often we leave the most important things in life on the back burner in order to deal things that feel urgent. What would it look like to say yes to the main thing, so we can say no to the distractions?
Last Saturday our Women's Ministry welcomed Leah Everson who spoke on the crucial importance of REST not just for having a healthy life. But for our relationship with God and the pursuit of our life's call. I had the privilege of overhearing her teaching and it was just too good not to share. I hope you like it!
Leah is a Minnesota girl, a washers rookie, a book addict, and a messy mama. She divides her time between encouraging new mothers in their walk with God and taking care of her own busy boys. Loved by Jesus, Leah is learning to rest in Him. Leah received her MDiv from Denver Seminary and was the founding director/teacher of The Scum Study Center at Scum of the Earth Church in Denver, CO for five years. Leah is a member of Redbud Writers Guild and participates in the Five Minute Friday community.

This is part one of a three part series about following Jesus where we are, with those in front of us, and for the long haul. How do we let go of the past and the future and life faithfully in the present?
