We always have a collie around. We are hiking with three of our five grandchildren. It is times like these that some little points about creation, or even the Beatitudes, can be talked about as you go along the path. Of course, be ready for anything to interrupt. Right after this was taken, they all decided it would be fun to run along the trail. Take advantage of each moment you are given! I restrict comments most of the time in order to keep our focus on the Bible passage and its application from a warm-hearted Calvinist’s perspective. Now that we have completed The Lord’s Prayer and The Beatitudes, we might all profit from listening to each other. Please tell us how you have been helped by these studies on the Lord’s Prayer and the Beatitudes. Has the introduction to Thomas Watson and Martyn Lloyd-Jones and warm-hearted Calvinism been beneficial to you? Have you read from any of the other books from the main menu? Any questions?

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.”
