Be Transformed by the Renewing of Your Mind

November 5, 2013          
 “Sarah settles in to her new home in Castle Rock, CO, Sheryl stopped by for a visit. We are so thankful for family time.”

Dear Friends and Family,

 “For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers,” Ephesians 1:15. Thank you for your continued prayers and partnership, also for our family as we observed the four year anniversary of Paul’s death. I share my thoughts on my blog: From Ashes To “Deathday #4.”

“New Normal (life without Paul) with Sarah & Matt Hunter, Dixie (Matt’s mom) includes a coffee break in their new town – Castle Rock CO.”

“For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.” 2 Chronicles 16:9   Love this verse!  It is evidenced everywhere I go as I share the Good News of how Jesus transforms us by the renewing of our minds.  

"Sheryl with Sharon Renwick, serves as Mt Hermon Guest Services coordinator, was in Sheryl’s wedding party, Sharon worked with Paul at Youth For Christ in Anaheim, CA in 1978.”

As the keynote speaker for the Mt Hermon Christian Camp’s Women’s Conference, Mt Hermon Christian Camps, I taught about the healing offered as we accept forgiveness for our sins and offer the same mercy to others, even those who don’t deserve it.
This is spiritual transformation.
 “The Cross offers total and complete forgiveness. Mt. Hermon women forgave their offenders, wrote their names on sticky notes, placing them on the cross. Colossians 3:13, 14 “He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross.”

“Gina came to me at the end of the conference, “I’ve been away from God for six years, didn’t want to forgive my x-husband. I finally did it. I am so excited to be back in fellowship with God again. Thank you, Sheryl. Thank God!”

How do you learn to walk in a “New Normal?” Let God’s word show you how to do it, He did it for me, for Gina and for many others. He will do it for you, too!
“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.” Rom 12:2

By His Grace, Sheryl
