God has a plan and a purpose for all our lives, but so often we are t aware of what our purpose is. We have been given different gifts to serve the Body of Christ yet don't kw or understand what they are. The reason for this book is to help believers to t only kw who they are in Christ, but for them to begin functioning in the many gifts they have been given to serve and help build up the Body of Christ. In this book are many stories of people like you and me who, when finding out what their gifts were, t only encouraged others and blessed them, but they experienced a new joy in serving the Lord. You may think you can't be used by God w for different reasons, but God says you can! In His strength you can do everything He calls you to do. When I think back on the many years of serving the Lord, thirty-nine, I am filled with joy and thanksgiving for His love, grace, and faithfulness to me and my husband. We have been blessed to be married sixty-one years and have five married children and eleven wonderful grandchildren. We have served the Lord faithfully wherever He has placed us. I have given numerous bible studies over the years to all age groups and ministered the love of the Lord and the Word of God in nursing homes; senior's centers; a homeless shelter; and gave Bible studies for senior's at a local college, in church and in our home. My greatest challenge was to write my first book a few years ago and then this book. I am truly a blessed woman.
