He Calls Me Bethany

Barbara Holmes

Writing is an expression of God's goodness to me.  My goal is the share that goodness with as many people as I can.

From Above

Life is beautifully full of everyday overcomings.  I like to think of every struggle as a seed for the future.  Pain, trauma, and disappointment can all be composted by God to work and optimize the soil in our lives.  I've written and shared many stories of the miraculous and great power of God's love to change hearts, situations, and mindsets over the years.  There are no hopeless cases in God's courthouse.  Everyone has a chance to be loved, healed, and forgiven.  Everyone is invited to commune with Him in the garden of His love.  I believe that these books and resources offered here will speak life and beauty to whatever season you are in.  It will also give you the courage to step into the great adventure of Faith.  After all, a journey with Jesus is always full of adventures!
