Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.-Proverb 3:27

God made each one of with unique talents, personalities and skill sets. And when we ask Jesus into our lives, we’re given at least one spiritual gift. We get the most joy and make the biggest difference when we use our God-given talents, gifts and abilities to build the church. Serving is a form of worship, a way to express gratitude for what Jesus has done for us,  and to share the love and grace we’ve been given. When we’re working side by side with other people, a bond inevitably forms. This was part of God’s plan. You see Warryn’s sister Joi teams up on a song with powerful lyrics.

Erica addressed her miscarriage in an honest way. Watching Erica and Lisa share troubles, concerns and worries  was pure and cathartic.  if we fail to do good and do not share what we have we are neglecting others.  Sharing what you have  and honestly communicating are the types of personal sacrifices that are pleasing to God. Erica also reveals her encounter with suicidal thoughts as a child. 

Encouragement and healing go hand in hand. As we encourage others and they find healing, we’re encouraged. That will be the message that Erica can bring forth in her book. Joi brings a song that is honest and promises encouragement.

Erica revealed a personal moment in her confessional that stunned even me.
