Gabrielle Giffords Destroyed to Abundant Life

Looking back on 2011 we remember Gabby Giffords' story, one that begins with destruction from a single gun shot in a Safeway parking lot in Tulsa, AZ. To a story of love and strength born from a difficult journey of rehabilitation.   Her husband, Astronaut Mark Kelly, stood by her side consistently pouring out encouragement to lift up his wife and love to carry her through tough trials.  In Mark’s love for Gabby we see scripture come to life, "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her," Ephesians 5:25.  God also tells us, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." John 10:10.  We have learned that with love we gain strength to overcome difficult situations together.

Absolutely an amazing story as we look back on 2011.  What was something that happened in your life in 2011 that has prepared you for this coming new year?  Share with us here or on our Facebook Page.

Joplin Devastation...and Restoration

Looking back on 2011, we spent some time reflecting on some of the stories that touched our hearts. On May 22nd, a tornado ripped through the city of Joplin, Missouri, claiming 162 lives and completely leveling the city. In the aftermath of the destruction, K-LOVE artists MercyMe, Mandisa, The Museum and held "Restore Fest," a concert with ticket proceeds benefitting Convoy of Hope and Samaritan's Purse, two organizations assisting in the recovery efforts. It proves that even in the midst of life's hardest trials, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
