Wonder where I’ve been? I’ve had no time to write since September. Too much on my plate. My daughter found out in September that she had cancer and I’ve been helping out with the grandchildren. In addition, my pastor asked me to research Children Ministry materials for Sunday School, Children’s Church, and Wednesday night . So I had to put aside my writing for awhile. I may not be able to write much until we implement the new Children’s Ministry in September and until my family responsibilites settle down a bit.

There is an old hymn I used to sing that has become my motto these days, “As Thy Days, So Shall Thy Strength Be.” God has kept that promise and made it real for me these last months.

What promise has become real for you these days? I hope it is the Bible’s promise that the Lord Jesus Christ’s dying and rising again makes access to the Father possible for any of us. Think about it as we approach Palm Sunday and Easter.

About Carol Brandt

I earned a B.A. in History from Florida State University and M.Ed in.Higher Education from Florida Atlantic University. I taught high school social studies before “retiring” to full-time homemaking and raising two daughters. Now I love being a grandmother to four boys and a girl. I have also raised five collies.

My husband, John, was an optometrist, who worked tirelessly for his profession through private practice and as a consultant, and served on the Board of Trustees of Illinois College of Optometry for twenty years.

Ernest Reisinger was my chief mentor in this warm-hearted application of Calvinism. He gave me many books! The Founders Journal and Founders Conferences, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and Charles Spurgeon have been other sources of Reformed thinking as well as the other warm-hearted ones listed in my book, “Warm-hearted Calvinists.”
