Hello Friends,

The ladies of CCOKC will be entering into another exciting adventure together beginning January 9th, 2012.

But before we actually start our new journey taking us through the next few months, we will get to enjoy some of the messages we brought back from the Pastor’s Wives Conference last September. There won’t be a study guide with these DVDs, but we will discuss the subject matter together after the videos. The theme of the conference was "Simply Grace". Two of the messages were by Gisela Yohannan, a precious German sister. She is genuine, open and loves the Lord. These were powerful messages to me because they complimented and emphasized what Ken was teaching on Sundays and what we were learning in our own ladies’ Monday evening messages. They spoke right to my heart that Grace is for me! And it is for you too, no matter where you have been or what you have done…the Grace Jesus paid so dearly to gift you with is always in abundance and, we cannot outrun it.

So then now…

I am excited to get to say that the next few months we are going to be journeying through.

“HIND’S FEET ON HIGH PLACES” based on Habakkuk 3:19.

Habakkuk 3:19 The LORD God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer's feet, And He will make me walk on my high hills.

Psalms 18:33 compliments Habakkuk:

"He makes my feet like the feet of deer, And sets me on my high places."

This is one of my personal all-time favorite books. It has a lot of meaning for me, as it is the first book I had ever read all the way through as a new believer. I learned SO much from the main character in the book (Miss Much Afraid), and I am confident that whether you are a new believer or a seasoned one that you will find this book relevant and minister to you in whatever you are going through. This powerful little book is an allegory, slightly similar to “Pilgrim’s Progress”, but do not be afraid :). Hind’s Feet is very readable. It’s pages are not written in the archaic English that Pilgrim’s Progress is. And it is written by a lady (Hannah Hurnard), for ladies... of all ages. Every one of us will relate to Miss Much Afraid in some way or another.

So... until then, have a very meaningful, stress-free, and Christ-centered "Mary" Christmas.
