“Capturing the fullness of life attached to the Vine”
Welcome! I appreciate you coming to “visit me” here on the web.
It’s been an exciting, life-long journey exploring what God has for my life and for the lives of His people — and it’s still not over! Every trial, every joy, and every circumstance has been about growing in greater intimacy and maturity with the Lord.
“Capturing the fullness of life attached to the Vine“ is the focus of my ministry. It is my desire to reach women with the hope of Christ and the fullness He has for the life of His own. No matter what you’ve experienced, what you may be presently dealing with, or what may come in your future, Jesus promises that if you abide in Him, you will bear much fruit (John 15:2). The key word is every, meaning that we all can bear fruit and have our joy made full (v. 11). The passage doesn’t say that only those who’s life is good and happy bear fruit. It says that everyone who abides in Him will bear fruit and have joy. If we are not abiding in Him during a trial, then we are likely disgruntled, having a pity-party, or giving up. These attitudes and actions don’t bear fruit. Only a life committed to letting Christ accomplish His perfect work through every situation will bear the kind of fruit that makes life “full.”
This ministry has developed and grown only as I have stayed in God’s presence and His Word—and then been willing to pour out His teaching into the lives of others. I am passionate about the Old Testament, and more importantly, how it is still active and alive through Jesus Christ. Rich treasures still draw us in as we seek to understand and act in obedience to the entire revelation of who God is and what He desires for our lives. My presentations are deeply rooted in Scripture even if they sound a little simple or “girly.” They bring to light the trials women face, along with how to overcome them, find hope and joy in them, and to grow through them. There are many topics to choose from. I know that you will find one that will fit the needs of your particular group—whether for an in-depth Bible teaching, or as an encouraging and outreach type of event. If by chance you have a unique theme which my listed presentations don’t quite fit, please feel free to inquire about having me create a new message to fit your exact need. I look forward to hearing from you with how I might serve you and the women of your church. May God richly bless you as you continue to seek and serve Him for the glory of His kingdom. In His service, Raelene
