My Feisty Southern Lady

Alice Klemashevich shares her experience as a Stephen Minister and one woman who made a huge impact on her view of care: In 2014 I got a call from Joe Shafer, asking if I was available to take on a new Care Receiver. I'd been a Stephen Minister for several years and had closed out my last assignment so I said yes. Joe went on to tell me that my new Care Receiver was a woman in her 80s with cancer. "Ugh!" I thought. "This is going to be a beating! I'll have... Read More

Boy, Have I Got a Story!

Susan Warren shares how her story lead to a ministry based on unconditional love: When Daniel said, "Tell me a story." I thought, "Boy, have I got a story!" My mind raced.

A Puzzle of a Parable

Amy Parsons 's love of puzzles helps her understand Jesus's parables: I like puzzles.  I enjoy a good word find, crossword and I love geocaching, although, I guess that's more of a "mystery" than a puzzle. I think I get it from my grandmother who was ALWAYS doing puzzles.  I would stay at her house and when I woke up in morning she'd have the paper doing the Word Jumble, the crosswords and anything else. Note for our...

God Opens Doors

As E'an Verdugo starts his next big adventure at The Village, he reflects on how God used Trietsch to make a path to fatherhood:   About a year ago was when Rachel and I began pursing the crazy idea of doing foster care with the hope of adopting. At the time, we were renting a tiny run-down house, we had 1 and a half working cars and barely making any money doing freelance work. It was something that we strongly felt the Lord was putting on our...

Grace Abounds in a Courtroom

Kim Beck experienced God's grace and mercy in a Texas courtroom. All praise to God! "Wow!" That's all I can say after what I witnessed today. "God, you are incredible. Wow!" I feel like I've just been to church. But I was in a courtroom. Everyone in that courtroom had the same sense. You could feel it. It was electrifying. No doubt God was in that room and the Holy Spirit was working mightily. In my ministry at the Gainesville State School there are... Read More
