Wow Jam Comes to Pasadena, CA this Weekend






This year Wow Jam will be Saturday August 26, 2017 at 1:00 P.M. in Pasadena, CA.  It takes place right in front of the City Hall. 100 Garfield Avenue Pasadena, CA 91101.

I have been to Wow Jam twice and it was a great experience. Thinking back on it, I remembered that this is where my daughter first ran. She literally ran before walked.

This year there will be over 12 churches, businesses and community organizations have joined with W.O.W. There are booths set up that provide free haircuts, bike repairs, health and vision screenings, grocery giveaways, makeovers and connections to community resources.

The event ends with a message of Christ's love and an invitation to accept Him as Lord and Savior. There are big pools set up for people to get baptized. There have been 447,275 people saved. Seeing so many people getting baptized by water is 
a beautiful thing. Something I will never forget and hope to see again this weekend. Seeing all these people giving up their past to walk into their future is a moment in time, where you can truly see love in the air.

May YHVH bless your coming days!

Have You Heard Of The Bible Project?

   
thebibleproject.com

I chose to talk about The Bible Project because of the appreciation that our Ministry and family has for their mission.  The Bible Project is a non-profit that provides a visual illustration video that breaks down the Bible, book by book. "Read Scripture" divides up each book into sections. It tells who the author is of each particular book. It breaks down the message into a simple to understand form. They always give their content for away for free. 

The design is like reading an outline at the end of a chapter then you read the chapter for yourself remembering the main points. It is broken down into 16 parts, that are not in chronological order but is placed to show the whole story.  This was designed to help people learn how to read the Bible and help those who find the Bible intimidating. Reading the Bible is an intellectual and Spiritual experience. 

The Bible Project has animations, podcast, books and print resources, the materials will be translated into different languages. When you visit thebibleproject.com you can see the latest project they're working on. Our Ministry gives a monthly donation to support the mission. You can help them to continue to make these projects by giving a one-time gift or be a monthly supporter yourself.

May YHVH bless you coming days!

Why don't many Christians Celebrate The Biblical New Year? ( March 2-3 2017)


Image result for biblical new year



The reason why many Christians don't celebrate the Biblical New Year because it dates back to Roman Emperor Constantine. The first Council of Nicaea 325 a.d., when they created the new man-made Universal Christian Religion, separating themselves from the original Biblical Holy Sacred traditions given to Israel by God YHVH to Moses. As time moves on, the break-offs of the Universal Christian Religion took the traditions and beliefs created by the Universal Christian Religion, also adopting other pagan “holy” days (holidays) into the Universal Christian Religion. Leaving YHVH's Biblical Holy Calendar with symbolic festivals of past and future events, established to teach and remind us of the promises God has kept, leaving the calendar behind.

The Biblical New Year is the start of the first month; Abib (Aviv)/Nisan of the New Year, made sacred and Holy by our Creator and Father, YHVH. This time-keeping calendar was created for Holy festivals helping Israel and those of faithful believers of Yeshua to memorialize symbolic events of past and present, such as Passover, Resurrection Day, Weekly Sabbath and even the second coming of Christ Yeshua’s Feast of Trumpets.

Why is it important? Time is not given to us to waste but for a deeper account of the understanding of Salvation, the New Covenant and the Second Coming of the King. Understand, the HOLY Calendar doesn't just cease, because most of mankind has stopped using it, never used it or even altered it.


Here are some examples of how the calendar works.In the Biblical Calendar, the "Day" starts in the evening (dusk to dusk): I.E. ~ Dusk, Evening, Dawn, Morning, Afternoon, Dusk. When looking at how all the new months start at the sliver of the New Moon, not the absent moon, nor full moon. We get the Weekly Sabbath by the start of the Biblical New Year day, being the first day of the month, then count to the seventh day, then you would be following the Weekly Sabbath.



YHVH plans have and will always be in motion, the Calendar is only a glimpses of “time travel” per say. It’s not a code, but a reminder, not a checklist, but a gauge of things to come. It’s better than Outlook and Google calendars, it’s a yearly reminder that the Almighty God has created for a reminder of HOPE!


May YHVH Bless your coming days!

Book Pick: Venture Mom From Idea To Income In Just 12 Weeks


www.venturemom.com

The book is Venture Mom written by Holly Hurd. My favorite quote from this book is, "Create your business around something that taps both into your experience and your passion." This book gives real life advice and tips with real-life stories of successful Moms. The book begins with a Q&A to get to know what you enjoy and what you would want to do. 

Some ideas that are covered in the book are:

Personal Chef /Meal Service
Designing Playrooms
Photography
Skin Care Line
Creating an App
Writing a Novel
Starting a Class
Creating a Product
Creating a Newsletter
Creating in Fashion
Creating a helpful website

This book gives you the steps of creating a business from beginning to end; by using a twelve-week plan by writing everything out in a notebook. How to get the basics of what is the problem and the solution. Who you do your business for. Where they find you. It is recommended to get input from your friends and family about your business idea. If they like the idea and would they use the product or service.  There are suggestions on how to get your name out there and network. One of these ways is to go out and be a speaker and getting your "elevator pitch down."  

In closing, I say try your idea. You could have a solution to a small problem or huge problem. The idea could help with relieving stress for someone or help with their everyday routine. Always remember every day is an opportunity.

Lady Pick: Do You Have This In Your Neighborhood?



www.littlefreelibrary.org

I discovered this about two years ago in the city of Pasadena, Ca and I fell in love. There is such a sense of community with having a little-shared library. More recently, I was so excited to see one outside of our local Vromans bookstore. I myself love to leave a Bible in our local Little Free Libraries because most of us don't think about reading the Bible as a leisure read. Most people gravitate more to books on a single topic. 
     
Little Free Library is a nonprofit that shares the love of books. The motto is, " Take a book, Leave a book." There are more than 50,000 Little Free Libraries that have popped up around the world. Most of the libraries are located outside for easy access. The Little Free Libraries are made from found or recycled materials. 

You can start one in your neighborhood! On the website littlefreelibrary.org you can find the book exchange boxes for purchase with prices ranging from $ 219.00 - $1,254.00. If you are crafty, you can build your own. There is a registration fee of $ 40.00 per library. When you go to the website you can see where the nearest Little Free Library is to you. Please share this information with everyone you know and let us help Little Free Library reach their goal of 100,000 by the end of 2017.

2017 Goal: Build-up Friendships


www.colministry.com

Can it be as easy as asking someone,"Do you want to be friends?" 

In the world of technology today where we use our social media to keep connected, we stop taking out the time to just sit down with each other face to face. We are more concerned about how many likes we have and how we look for other people. We are looking more for the attention than the connection. Spending quality time together and spending time with a friend can leave you feeling renewed and refreshed.

A great friendship is based on trust. It is built on listening to each other and helping each other grow. To have someone to care for you and support you in your time of need. Having a friend that respects you and your feelings, but always willing to tell you the truth.  A true friendship is unconditional. It doesn't change based on physical appearances, financial circumstances or even distance. 

A lot of the time we don't make time for one another. We'll say, "We are too busy!" or "I don't have the time.", but at the same time, we make sure that we set aside time to watch our favorite tv show. With being so busy we do have to schedule time with each other. Take the time while you can. Don't wait until its too late and your friend is no longer around.         

Our greatest friendship is with God and He is there for us 24/7. Our phone call is an easy prayer said. Our conversations with God come from the heart. He is there like a best friend ready to listen and not ready to judge. We can tell him all the works of the flesh (Galatians 5:19) God will listen to all of it. He will help us grow like a best friend does by building up in us the fruits of the Spirit. He builds us in Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self -Control. All of us already have a best friend in God. He is always with us, we should never feel lonely. We always have someone to talk to. He has given us a King Yeshua (Jesus) our savior for us to represent every day. With him as our friend all things are possible. 

May God YHVH Bless your coming days!

Scripture Pick: Proverbs 31 Mother

Proverbs 31: A Mother's Wisdom

Scripture Read: Proverbs 31

There are many that don't realize or forget that Proverbs 31 are words of a mother teaching her son about a rare, precious, and great woman. Her first instruction is for her son the king to have righteous judgement and how to conduct himself as a man. Then she moves on to the instruction of what to look for in the right woman. 

There is so much more than just what some would say as high expectations to be a righteous woman. As it speaks of the "Proverbs 31" woman and it refers to her husband also. As Proverbs 31 comes to a close, it tells us about how her children call her "Blessed", which is the greatest praise.

 As mothers, we have to think of what we want to leave our children with; a bitter spirit, like a bad aftertaste. Or, with wisdom that will taste like a bite of the first fruit of a juicy peach that keeps giving. The mother teaches and gives direct examples of a great character and wisdom (only coming from God) to pass on to the next generations as Proverbs 31 has been given to us.
