One Good thought

OGT distant mountains.jpg

Do you ever simply feel like you need a good word? A good thought, such as a Bible verse or a quote from someone wise gives us a better direction for our own thoughts to ramble in. One Good Thought is written to do just that, to offer an encouraging word for us to ponder --along with questions or ideas which bring the thought into the reality of our modern lives and lastly, a prayer. Written by Edna King, who co-authored Woven, One Good Thought is deep enough to inspire adults, but it’s family friendly so you can read them with your kids before school or at bedtime. We hope you are inspired and encouraged by these words.
