Realigning Lives with The Way, The Truth and The Life...

Today I would like to introduce you to a local ministry called Seasons of Life.  Our friends there have both been married before and know the pain of divorce, healing, blending families, having a Godly marriage and now work full time helping to heal marriages through one on one or couple to couple discipleship to counsel individuals and couples to heal, grow and succeed in their relationships by putting Christ at the center.

When they felt the Lord calling them to full time ministry, they were obedient and jumped in trusting God for provision.  They got rid of many possessions, moved to a smaller home and live a simple, happy beautiful life serving others.  They to me are the epitome of the verse Luke 21:4 For all of these have cast in whatever excess they had into the place of God's offerings, but this one from her want has cast in everything that she owned.”  They have given everything, even their daily lives to serve the Lord by being available to serve others.  

Here is more details about what this ministry does from the website.

1. Discipleship – weekly, monthly, or quarterly meetings at least 60 minutes in length investigating 3 basic questions:
  • What is God showing you in His word this week and how is it challenging you?
  • What’s happened to you this week that was undeniably God?
  • How can I pray for you/where are you struggling?
2. Speak Life – this is a broad category where we serve as the hands and feet of Christ through food, clothing, and personal care items distribution. But, in the past 5 years it has also extended to putting a homeless family up in an extended stay hotel, providing fuel for single moms, Christmas trees for families who would not otherwise have one, marriage retreat and youth conference sponsorships for troubled marriages and needy teens. Anywhere that a little life is needed to bridge the gap from one challenging season to another have been places God has called, equipped, and used this ministry to care for those in need.
3. That Day – A full length, one man show about a guy you might know and the judgement seat of Christ. www.thatday.info
4. Clean Slate – A half day workshop designed to develop a biblical approach to productivity.
5. Uprising – The sum total of our children’s discipleship programming and efforts to encourage home educators and promote development of a biblical worldview.

We have been to the That Day performance and it was awesome to say the least.  If you have been struggling with day to day stresses and need help with gaining that eternal perspective, watching Aarron's one man show will not only entertain and impress you with his endless characters he can play so well all at once, but will help you gain that eternal perspective that will really help with handling the day to day stuff in life with more grace, peace and wisdom.
To get an idea of what the marriage counselling looks like, you can watch "Frank & Ellie's Story" shared by Aarron from Seasons of Life Ministries below


There are so many good causes out there and this ministry is one of them and I just wanted to share because it is not one you will find when searching online for charity's or ministries to give to as it is local and small.
AND If you need help in your faith or in any of your relationships, then contact Seasons of Life Ministries, even if you are not local, I'm sure they would be more than happy to help you by phone or email.  That is what they do. :)
