Saturday Commentary - "Stories of Value" by Larry Jones


I want to recommend an amazing daily devotional that you can have delivered directly to your email in box.  "Stories of Value" is written by my pastor, who is also a writer and participates in our local Tidewater Area Christian Writers group. 

This is Reverend Larry Jones' website:
http://storiesofvalue.wordpress.com/


About the Author:  Larry Jones is a Christian minister who enjoys writing parabolic stories.  His stories are written to engage and entertain children and youth, while convicting adults of timeless Biblical truths.  Every Story of Value focuses on a specific truth which calls the reader to action.

Larry has also written  Morning Devotions for several years and loves sharing his thoughts with others. To receive an electronic copy of Morning Devotions, subscribe through the link to the right of his home page.


In addition, Larry invites you to meet his church family, the Northside Christian Church, Yorktown, Virginia.  For directions, times and other information about Northside visit www.northsidecc.org.


Giveaway:  Leave a comment for a chance to win the Joyce Meyer devotional we are giving away in honor of Diana's one year anniversary on "Overcoming Through Time--With God's Help."


Our final giveaways for "Diana week" will be announced on Sunday!  Leave a comment on any or all of the posts since last Saturday to enter.

  2. CARRIE, what an awesome idea to have a daily devotional online to start your day with, as well as the J. Meyer one! I tried to subscribe twice via email and it says "this content cannot be displayed in a frame." :( So I'll keep trying! Thanks for the link!

  10. TERESA, DIANA, and BARBARA -- I like reading Reverend Jones's devotionals to my son, too. He writes in a lovely way that is easily understandable but also meaningful on a complex level if that makes any sense!

  12. What a great giveaway - I admire Joyce now, and have since I first learned of her years ago. Thank you for introducing us to Pastor Jones's devotionals. I visited his blog immediately and signed up for his daily devotions...hoping that includes his morning devotion also. Thanks for this great giveaway and the chance to win a wonderful read.

    Blessed by Grace,

  13. BARBARA, I love to listen to Joyce Meyer. It gets tricky when I am transporting son to summer day camp--can't listen during the tv time so have to listen to it on computer. You will love Larry's devotions. Thanks for coming by Barb!

  20. MARIAN and JACKIE, thank you, its been a wonderful celebration week and an equally wonderful year!

    Nope, MARIAN, no vacation, just some time to pop my nose in a book would be great! Have been having either one of my grandsons over every day about the time I read, in the late afternoon thru about 10 pm on and off. My daughter works different hours, and no daycare is open that late so we have been having him almost every afternoon until she picks him up and leaves around nine. No reading time at all hardly. Pray she will work something out; don't mind keeping him a couple of days a week. And then the night he is gone the other gson wants to come over, and I really enjoy that b/c I don't get to see him much thru the school yr. BUT, I do want to read!!!!

  23. MARIAN, you have been busy! LOL! It has taken me 8 days and still only 20% into the book, and I'm sure I would enjoy it alot if I could read a few chapters at a time and not get interrupted. I need to get to know heroine here! haha
