Hearing about Andy Andrews’ newest book, The Noticer Returns (read about that below), has me thinking about…well, noticing. Am I taking time to notice God’s blessings? To notice how He’s moving in the lives of others around me? To notice what He might be trying to show me, if only I’d slow down, quit thinking about everything else and focus on Him for a little while? Let’s take some time this week to spend some time noticing, listening, reflecting … spending time with the One who created us and letting Him reveal eternal truth to us, a bit at a time.

And on that note, we'd love to hear what He has taught you, as you have walked with Him. Whether you have followed Him for one week or 50 years, we believe that God reveals truth to all who seek Him. What has He shown you that might benefit someone else? Please take a moment to answer by clicking here.

A thought from the Word...

Psalm 119:130
The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.

Congratulations to our friend, the talented Jason Crabb! The Grammy-winning singer recorded a heartfelt video for his hit song, "Love is Stronger," and USA Today hosted the video's premiere on Monday. But there's more to the story than that ... Jason had a very special young lady co-starring in the video. You can read all about it here, and just try watching the "Love is Stronger" video without getting a tear in your eye ... we dare you!
Homecoming columnist and author/speaker extraordinaire Andy Andrews has written a new book that you're going to want to read. The Noticer Returns is a life-changing book that continues the story of "Jones," the mysterious and wise character from Andy's first book in the series, The Noticer. Many who read The Noticer were so inspired that they bought extra copies to give away, and we are hearing the same about this book. You can read more about The Noticer Returns and Andy's extraordinary background by clicking here.
Libbi Perry Stuffle is rejoicing…for the first time in 8 ½ months, her husband Tracy was able to attend church! He even sang and gave his testimony for the congregation. While there is still a long road of recovery for Tracy, he and Libbi are rejoicing in what God has done, and they are so grateful for your prayers! You can read Libbi’s words about Sunday morning here.
