“There once was a man who said the most marvelous things and did the most amazing things…. Some called him the Light of the World.” ~ a paraphrase of one of Pastor Cathy’s favorite ways to begin a conversation about Jesus.

The Bible tells us, and believers’ life experiences through the ages confirm, that Jesus is always with us. Jesus heals, Jesus frees, Jesus saves, Jesus raises up and Jesus still rolls stones away.  Jesus gives us the essence of who God the Father is. God is LOVE. And God loves each of his children (that’s us and our kids!) as a parent loves their child, unconditionally. That means God loves God’s children NO.MATTER.WHAT.

Which is the truth, Cathy believes, that once seeded and growing in a child, helps carry them through adolescent and young adult years as confidently as possible, with wisdom and with hope.

“Point your kids in the right direction— when they’re old they won’t be lost.” Prov. 22:6 (The Message)

Cathy loves Jesus and kids (and grown-ups). And also the beach, running, paddle-boarding, reading and hanging outside in the sun.
