My name is Angela Bynum. I am the Children’s Pastor at Resurrection Life Ministries. I have been ministering in Children’s Ministry for over 19 years. I am also a Board Certified Belief Therapist and I provide counseling for children and adults.
I will be speaking at the women’s life group “The Body, Soul & Spirit of a Virtuous Woman” at R.L.M. on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2011. My topic will be “Walking on water in my Prada high heels.” As women we all deal with juggling many things at one time, crying children, financial dilemmas, career demands, cleaning house and so much more. And then in the midst of just managing today’s demands real life trauma hits, and you cry out “I can’t do this.” Then the Voice of Truth says, “Walk by faith and not by sight. I am with you!” And like Peter you have to jump out the boat and cross the open sea of life situations and over high waves of fear and doubt and run into the arms of the “Great Rescuer” Jesus. It is so easy for life circumstances to look impossible and our emotions to be all over the map. However, Jesus came that we may speak to the storm and say, “Peace, be still” and choose to put our faith in Jesus and not in our situation.
I will be sharing how not to be ruled by our emotions but how to be ruled by the Spirit and live a victorious life in Christ! I will also be sharing testimonies from my life and how God brought me through each one and how He will do the same for you! Come join us and experience a night of the Lord encouraging you in your faith as He breathes life and joy into all areas of your life. Come prepared to laugh and cry!

Trustworthy: God’s word is absolute
By Grace G. Booth/Guest Columnist
Through course after course, college professors warned us students against using absolutes in our papers. No always, no nevers! What those instructors were teaching us (themselves using absolutes) was never to use them! If students ignored their advice, their papers would certainly (if not always) be flawed, their theses impossible to prove. Life, it seems, holds exceptions to most rules. About testing we were told never to choose the answer to multiple choice questions that held those banned words. Teachers told us those answers would always be wrong!
Growing a great harvest takes patience, dedication
By Gwen Williams/aka Mrs. Chocolate
Summer time is just the time to reap the harvest from the spring plantings. Many fruit stands will grace the highways luring the health conscious with their bounty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Some of the delights are eaten and some are packed away for the cold winter months.
It’s great to be involved with ‘Upwards’ basketball
By Gwen Williams/AKA MS Chocolate/Guest Columnist
I’m not a sports person, but every year I look forward to sharing with the children involved in the Upward Basketball program. First through sixth graders come together to experience their first sports encounter playing basketball. Boys and girls play together with the hope of building character and values for life. Excitement floods the gym as parents, grandparents, and aunts gather with various electronic gadgets waiting to film their children. The program is also a means of reaching parents with children who are unchurched.

Through life, no matter where we are, we face times that leave us with just a handful of understanding and a trunk full of confusion. Circumstances leave us standing in the road, not sure which way to turn.
It seems like everyone around you has something to offer in abundance and yet all you believe you have is not worthy of offering. In our minds, all we see is the lack but God sees the abundance around the corner of surrender.
God’s frosting covers us all
By Gwen Williams AKA MS Chocolate/Guest Columnist
Today I was in the mood to bake something different. A friend sent a recipe for fig cake, so my creative mind went right to work. I gathered all the ingredients and soon the aroma from the oven filled my home. The sound of the bell on the stove signaled my sweet masterpiece was ready. While waiting for the cake to cool, I took a bite of the sample cake I made earlier. I decided this was the best cake ever!
Taking a new look at the situation
By Kelcie Kinchen/GuestColumnist
A lot of times in our lives we run from things we encounter. We are walking along our perfect, little brick walkways, all happy-go-lucky to what we expect or hope awaits us at the end of this walk.
Miracle on the road to Emmaus
By Grace G. Booth/Guest Columnist
Two disciples traveled the road to Emmaus so caught up in their disappointment and grief they didn’t recognize the Risen Savior walking along beside them. Jesus spoke and asked them about their conversation. Still, they knew Him not. The disciples began their commentary of how the One they thought would deliver Israel had come and done wondrous things but had been taken by the chief priests, condemned to death and crucified. Their hope had died along with Christ on the cross.
Finding home in His hands
By By Kelcie Kinchen/Guest Columnist
This past August I left my home in the fine city of Picayune to do something I had never done before: to leave all I knew, everyone I have known my whole life, and everything that was comfortable in order to move to a new place where I felt in the deepest parts of my heart the Lord was calling me to.
Hit the ‘Reset’ Button
By Sandy Lemoine/Guest Writer
As I walked into the church worship center that Sunday in January 2010, the large round red sign with the word RESET struck me like a written message from God in answer to my questions in the New Year…What’s next? Where do I go and what do I do now? I knew the key was in the word “reset,” but how do I do it? Resetting is not exactly like making New Year resolutions, but more like making changes in some areas of your life. It’s like changing directions.
A mission trip to remember
By Grace Booth/Guest Columnist
The trip to Budapest, Hungary, brought an unexpected blessing for Doug and me as we participated in an outreach to over 200 missionaries from fifteen different countries in Eastern Europe.
