Why Did I Create Spirit & Family Magazine?

Why Did I Create Spirit & Family Magazine?

Well, the idea came from one of my favorite Bible scriptures which reads “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”  It is a scripture that helps me to see the good in the bad,  and it is from this scripture verse that Spirit & Family Magazine was created. I figured I’d take the negat

In light of Romans 8:28, I often find myself thinking about the positive lessons I learned as a result of negative events of my life:  I learned to compassionate as a result of people that coldheartedly hurt me; I learned the value of true friendship only after regretfully turning my back on one of my childhood friends; I learned how important it is to be a good listener at a time when all efforts to express myself seemed to fall on deaf ears.  ‘Seems like it took “the bad” in order for me to see “the good.”

So Spirit & Family was created to help shake up the negative so that I could sift out the positive.  I went through things that brought me so much pain, but that pain brought me closer to God and gave me a deeper understanding of life and myself. Sometimes it takes going through the fire before we stop, drop to our knees in prayer and roll out the red carpet welcoming God into our hearts.  

To the young, I pray that Spirit & Family will help you to consider God’s word more carefully in the decisions you make in your life.  To the believer, I pray that Spirit & Family will help you to stay focused on God’s word and serve as a reminder that trouble shows up now and then to everyone’s doorstep - being a Christian does not exempt you from life’s troubles.  And to the non-believer, I pray that Spirit & Family will help you to see the impact of heading God’s word giving your life to him today.
