May 9th Luncheon
It's All Good
Human tendency is to wonder why bad things happen. Why doesn’t God just give us what we want?
In 2000, Ellen had a massive stroke. And in 2006, six years after her stroke, she "got right with God; and began responding to His Call" on her life. Ellen is living her life out as a character witness for Christ. She is living proof that the “bad things” in life provide the best opportunities for Christ to shine through us. Join us as Ellen shares her amazing journey with us as well as providing basic information about this #4 cause of death in developed countries worldwide. May is National Stroke Awareness Month; join us, your heart will not only be encouraged, but blessed as well.
Ellen's book "Praise God for Tattered Dreams", will be available for purchase at our May 9th Luncheon for $13.00. It is also available online at www.lulu.com (ISBN = 9780578033754) for $20 + shipping.
Based on the foundational truths found in Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.”
