I had lots of help today. These newbies to everything bread turned into instant creative experts. They were rolling and kneading and filling and braiding.

That's the gift of baking bread!
Acts 2:42
Breaking of Bread 

We did it all!

I took this photo when I volunteered at Chosen Book offices, Lincoln, VA in 1981. Pictured here are four authors who, along with Catherine Marshall, were forerunners in writing books that mentored, taught and discipled spirit-filled living. "On this day, we pause to honor Chosen Books co-founder John Sherrill, who went to be with the Lord this weekend at the age of 94. John and his wife Elizabeth were also long-time editors for Guideposts magazine and the co-authors of such bestselling books as The Hiding Place, The Cross and the Switchblade and God’s Smuggler.

John's book, My Friend the Bible, was instrumental in my personal walk with the Lord, hearing God and discovering the Bible as my Friend. I also wrote about how this book helped me face the real life struggle I was having with alcohol. I write about it Adventures in Prayer: Day 10 THIRSTY. "One day, I stumbled onto an autobiographical book about a man’s struggle with alcohol. He wrote about how he finally yielded to the Lord. He said he “had not had a drink since that day.” As I read his story, the Holy Spirit was writing my story." Honor to a man who's work set me on a trajectory to hear God and follow the Holy Spirit. An adventure that continues today. "Early in my relationship with the Lord, I came across a book titled My Friend the Bible, by John Sherrill. At first, I thought, “Why would anyone title a book, My Friend the Bible?” It didn’t make sense to me. How could the Bible be a friend? Friends are personal, always available, loving, trustworthy, and loyal. I was curious, so I bought a copy of the book and began to read it. And I couldn’t go to sleep until I finished it! John Sherrill’s book changed my life in many ways, but more than anything else, it opened my eyes to the Bible as an ongoing conversation with God." Pierce, Mary Jo.
