~Memory Verse: "Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord." Romans 12: 9-11
~Bible Study: Still reading back through "The Ministry of Motherhood" I need the refresher course. :)
