A father is a father is a father…….

Sherri our daughter shared at all three weekend services at JBC this past weekend. She shared about her husband’s farming accident that happened two years ago when he broke his neck and now is paralyzed and in a wheelchair and how they have dealt with that event trusting in God and growing in character
and in their relationship with God as a result. Sherri spoke for 35 minutes and though she was telling their story she was also teaching and encouraging all who were listening on how to deal with unexpected trials in a way that would cause them to grow instead of becoming bitter at God and life in general as many do. This was the first time I have heard Sherri speak publicaly like this, and I came to the conclusion while listening to her in three services that God has given her a great gift. Like many who have been given a significant giftedness, a supernatural ability to edify others she is reluctant to admit that she has been entrusted with an ability from God to make a huge difference in the lives of others. As her Father I have a new goal of encouraging her to move out of her comfort zone and develope this gift and use it as a wise steward of God. Thomas and Sherri and their little boy Courage are living with us so I have lots of opportunities to encourage, teach, harass and nag. I think this is going to be a fun journey. I hope Sherri thinks so to šŸ˜„

    I couldn’t agree more! I could see her speaking at a Women of Faith conference, or on the same levels as some other amazing ladies, such as Beth Moore, Priscilla Schirer, etc.
