My Faith Statement


The goal of my Fellowship Group (discerned through much prayer) is to help us all grow closer to the Father through daily reading of His Word.

However, it is only natural that some would be curious as to my personal faith so I thought I’d provide a little info on that.

I am a Believer. I am saved by the Grace of YHWH through faith in my precious Messiah, His son.

The Messiah is my ultimate example of how to live and so I study the Word of God and follow His example as closely as I am able.

I see the whole bible as relevant and wholly applicable to our lives today and I am excited to be able to read it each day as the Father leads us to grow in knowledge of Him and in deeper relationship with Him.

We (my husband and I) are not a member of any denomination. Growing up, I went to mostly Baptist churches and Ricky and I were active members of a non denominational church until several years ago. We now study the Bible on our own, together, with our family, and several times a month we meet with a group of like minded Believers who have a heart and desire to study the Word. 

We (all the members of this group) are each on an individual path, laid out by our Father, and my goal is not to get you to walk the path I am on –
but to encourage you on your own path. 

We may do some things differently, and from time to time we may read the same text and see different things there, but we are of one accord in many things and we are all family, sharing the same wonderful Father. 

If you have other questions about what I believe, I encourage you to join us as we study the Word together as I’m not the standard – but He certainly is!

May YHWH bless the reading of His word!

    I would love to hear the story of how you came to leave your non denominational church for something (to me, at least) much richer, and more closely resembling the first century church. We were at a non denominational church for many, many years and loved it but found ourselves yearning for something more, something different. What you describe as your current “church” model with family study and gathering with like minded believers sounds wonderful but just not sure how to find that.

      I don’t think it is something you can find, I think it is something the Father brings you to. It was a journey of a few years to get to where we are now. It began when the Father arose in us a hunger for His Word – straight, undiluted, without fog machines and concerts. We began just reading the Bible, from the beginning. In doing that, we started seeing that a lot of what we had in terms of faith was inherited religion, inherited knowledge. We realized that we had not taken the serious responsibility, which was entirely on us, to diligently study and know His word. And so we set out to do that. We tested what we thought we knew against what He says and we let go of what did not prove true and clung to what did. Over time, through a series of events that only He could have possibly brought about, we slowly met likeminded people and a community was formed.
      John 1:1 says “In the beginning was the Word…”
      And our beginning began with the Word. Dedicating ourselves to reading it has changed everything.

        I was tickled to see your recipe for ground beef stew and am excited to try it. But then as I went to your website was very happy to see that you and your husband love the Lord and seem to be at the same point spiritually as we’ve come to. We’ve even been desiring to find a group of like-minded believers such as you describe and have been asking the Lord to lead us to one. Could you give us any wisdom or direction on this?

        I’ve joined your website and am very much looking forward to more of your recipes which appear to be the kind we like best . . . and your spiritual food will be the icing on the cake.
        Thank you!

      I just wanted to say that I am enjoying your notes on the Bible study so much. My mother was raised Christian and my father Muslim. I feel I am Chrisian, even though I say some Muslim sayings when I’m scared that mySyrian grandmother taught me. Could be habit. I married a wonderful man who was raised Muslim, sho just believe in God, but didn’t practice the religion. When I had my two boys, the first I enrolled in Catholic Sunday school, because the O T was taught in both Christian and Muslim faiths. When my second son’s third grade teacher called to say that he didn’t sho Jesus was, I was given a book of Bible stories thst I sould read each night. That went well until my son asked for more Fairytales. I Knew I was in trouble. That was when I enrolled both of us in Sunday School. My husband’s reply was take him I want him to bdlieve in God.
      PS One day my son asked his father why he didn’t go to church, his reply was do as your mother tells you.

      I just wanted to tell now much you notes are appreciated, and what a positive note you always have. Thank you for all the hard work that you do to make our lives easier!

      Hi Christy, I just wanted to tell you I finally have my heat turned on and the swamp coolers drained. It was a blessing from God. Today you mentioned my name. I was the caretaker for my husband. I came to El Paso and ended up taking care of his mom and then became full time caretaker for my husband till he passed away. I was single for 54 years and God brought Mike to me. He was looking and I was too. He came to Wisconsin to marry me. We met on the internet playing pinochle. We were married for 11 and 1/2 years. God has been good to me, now he is my husband and provider. I love you in the Lord, Jan

        Dear sister, it is wonderful to hear from you! I put your name on my list when I finished the chat this morning and prayed for you and this feels like a double blessing! The Father is so good to us. I know just what you are saying when you say that He is your husband and provider. He has stepped in and filled empty roles in my life as well. He is so good to us! I love you right back!!

      Yes, we have daily discussion with hundreds of comments a day, but that takes place on the daily reading threads in the Facebook group. The types of questions and discussions that we have require more time than I have to offer to answer them in multiple places and in the Facebook group I have a wonderful Admin team as well as other members who help answer questions folks have and point them to verses that keep us all lined up with the Word 🙂 Group membership is only open at the beginning of the reading cycle, because we read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, without skipping any of it. We want to start together and finish together. I’d love you to join us if you like! You can request now and you’ll be added when we open membership next, in the summertime.
