Strong Women

Apr 17, 2024

This week we’re joined by author and illustrator Ned Bustard. Ned lost his wife Leslie to cancer last year, but her beautiful spirit and faith are captured in the new book, Tiny Thoughts That I’ve Been Thinking. Leslie saw God’s goodness in life’s smallest details and infused ordinary moments with Christs light. Come hear about her legacy of faith and the exercise of trusting Gods plan in the face of grief and uncertainty. 





Every Moment Holy by Douglas McKelvey and Illustrated by Ned Bustard 

The Habit Podcast with Jonathan Rogers 

You Are What You Love by James K Smith 

Knowing God by J.I. Packer 


Creation is about more than HOW God created the world. It’s about why. From the beginning, God’s purpose has been to dwell with His image bearers in unbroken fellowship. It’s tempting to think that our sin ruined that plan, and that Jesus was God’s Plan B. But as Edward Klink says, Jesus and the Church were always Plan A. More than that, God is not replacing creation; He’s renewing it, and you and I have been invited to participate in that renewal as God’s agents of redemption. Klink’s latest book, The Beginning and End of All Things, will give you a bigger, more accurate perspective on God’s plan for creation and your place in it.
