Exciting News!!!!

Recently I discovered the wonderful Silhouette machine. I have so many projects I want to do for the synagogue.  I'm imagining worship banners, wall decorations, Torah covers,  ark curtains, decorations for costumes for our Davidic dance team.

I am so excited!  There are lots of chances out there in Blog-land to win one. Here's where you can find some Silhouette Giveaway contests.

A divine appointment in May set two ministers on a path together to restore America to her Judeo-Christian roots.

Pastor Jim Book, of the First Christian Church of Winter Park, and Rabbi Jem Golden of Ma’gen Da’vid Messianic Synagogue of Port St John, met at the Liberty Summit in Orlando where they were both scheduled speakers. Their messages resonated with attendees and sparked a fire that is spreading and leading to speaking requests across the U.S.

Both Jew and Christian have the same message: it is time for ministers in churches and synagogues to lead their members to be politically involved in order to save our country.

Pastor Jim Book speaks about the leaders of the United States being devout Christians and how they quoted Scripture and called on Jesus Christ in prayer. Weaving his message with Scripture, Pastor Jim challenges attendees to return to Godly values and to the Biblical principles of the Constitution.

A believer in Yeshua (Jesus Christ), Messianic Rabbi Jem Golden encourages ministers to trust God to protect them as they lead out to stand up for the obedience God expects of them. Both a Biblical and American historian, Rabbi Jem quotes the Bible as the basis of our founding documents and for the blessings our country has received in the past by applying those principles in government.

These two men of God are prime examples of unfailing leadership as they follow in the footsteps of the leaders of our country who stood for liberty. Pastors and rabbis alike will be encouraged and inspired to talk to their congregations with confidence and courage. Together, these two “gems” give inspiration and instruction on how ONE PERSON CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Pastor Book and Rabbi Golden are partnering to encourage ministers to stand firm on Biblical values and to work on these important issues:
• the family
• the sanctity of human life
• religious liberty
• education
• pornography
• national sovereignty

For more information about having them speak to your group, please contact:


I am so grateful to live in America.  I'm grateful for a government that allows me to participate in the election and law-making processI am also concerned abut the direction our country has taken, but grateful, as an American, that I can "put feet to my faith."

Tomorrow is the primary here in Florida. I pray resident voters will consider whether or not their candidate believes in Biblical values. 

Our country has strayed very far from what the founding fathers intended. Those brave men quoted the Bible and invoked the name of Jesus Christ for guidance and blessing. 

Please remember you are a part of the government (of the people, by the people, and for the people) and you can make a difference  with your prayers and when you take action.   

Check out the candidates and pray about who to vote for after checking out these voter guides from Christian Coalition:

Please pray for our country....

My Favorite Psalm (Song)

This is my favorite movie (and song, and Psalm). I watch it over and over again because it expresses greatest desire of my heart - to dwell in the house of the L-rd forever, to praise Him, and to dance in His joy. I hope you'll watch it and enjoy!

Psalm 27

1The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

2When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

3Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.

4One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

5For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

6And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.

7Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

8When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.

9Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.

10When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.

11Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.

12Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.

13I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

14Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

My Creative Spirit

I'm linking up to White Wednesdays over at Faded Charm.  Please visit:

Creativity is displayed all over my home, and I'm not bound by any decorating rules.  If I like it, I make it work.  

I like to mix things up and make displays, like shells and rocks, an angel made of soap... you name it.

I like to keep things around me that remind me of lessons G-d has taught me.  The rocks were picked up on my trip to Israel in '96.  The heart shaped rock has a hole in it.  It reminds me of the lesson I learned while in  Eretz Yisrael.

When I made Aliyah (ascent to Israel),  I understood for the first time what "covenant" meant.  I saw G-d keeping His covenant with Israel by bringing His people back and making the land bloom.  Until I saw this, I had a hole in my heart about marriage.  He healed me there in Israel, and  I learned there are those who do keep covenants.

For the next ten years, I learned to love Yeshua as my Kinsman Redeemer (see the book of Ruth in the Bible).  I learned what love, tenderness, kindness, patience, caring and faithfulness in a man meant by spending time alone with Him and  in His Word.  

Then - surprise, surprise!!!  When I least expected it, he brought a wonderful man into my life.  I recognized him as a G-dly man from the time I'd spent with Yeshua.  

Rabbi Jem and I were married in 2006, and I am so happy!!

We're both very creative.  You should see the pics from our wedding!!

You CAN make a difference

Are you as concerned as I am about the direction our country is going? Do you think, "but what can one person do?" 

As a member of Concerned Women for America, I've learned there is so much one person can do.   First, please understand that CWA does not promote any political party or candidate.  We work to bring Biblical principles into all levels of public policy. There's a cultural battle raging across this country and CWA is on the front line protecting those values through prayer and action.

We focus on six core issues:

  • the family
  • the sanctity of human life
  • religious liberty
  • education
  • stopping pornography
  • national sovereignty 

It would be an honor for CWA to speak to your church, or any other group you may be a part of, about what we, as individuals,  can do to preserve America.   Please pray about this, talk with your leader, and let me know if you would like to have a member of CWA share how one person can make a difference.
