Surrender Story: Friends and Enemies by Terri Wangard

Julie’s Note: My heart is to change the world through fiction, by creating characters who ultimately surrender whatever issue is holding them back from complete freedom in Christ. I love the premise behind Friends and Enemies by Terri Wangard because there is definitely surrender in this story.

Sabbath Sunday: New Roads

Each Sunday I share my own amateur nature picture with a few thoughts on God’s love for you. This is Upstate NY in Autumn. Breathtaking, isn’t it? It’s part of a 300 mile journey I take each time I visit loved ones. The trip is nearly a few turns and probably over 200 miles of straight highway. The road is known for bumps and construction.
