Authentic Faith

Closer to Him. Closer to others.

A small group of women from our church are getting together and reading Autentic Faith, by Gary Thomas. I've never experienced a *"book club" atmosphere before (*not sure what to call it), but I am already enjoying and learning much from this book that Cathy chose. 
 God is faithful...

Some of the notes I've taken from Authentic Faith so far are:  

What if life isn't meant to be perfect but we are meant to trust the One who is?

The seasons (of trials) are necessary because we do not walk easily into maturity.

The active Christian life is full of risks, heartache, and responsibilities.

Yes, we experience peace, joy and hope, but it is a peace in the midst of turmoil, a joy marked with empathy, and a hope refined by suffering-Refined BY Suffering-

Learn to love with God's love. Learn to serve with God's power.

Mourning gives us a glimpse of the world as God sees it.

With Love from,
Pam at Her Quiet Corner


  1. Hi Pam. Sounds like a faith-inspiring read. You're so right, life is not meant to be perfect - too many of us have found that quite the reality. Thankful for Jesus who walks with us, no matter what. Would love to hear more about the book as you go along. So glad to find your new blog here...keep posting, sister. You are loved.

    Hugs & prayers,

  2. Pam,
    It was nice talking to you and I believe everything happens for a reason. I am going to purchase the book and can't wait to read it. Thank you for talking to me and introducing this page to me. In Him, Shari
    P.S. You did a great job on writing and doing the page.

  3. Thank you Vicki
    I pray for your husbands health always and for you.

  4. Shari
    It was great chatting with you. I'm so glad you were able to come over to this site for a peak. Thank you for the kind words.

  5. To those of you who don't know Pam, this is the way she touches others who might be hurting. Through her pain she extends her heart to help those that might not know what it takes to get through trauma. I know this because I'm her husband. Just before my lung transplant, my physical issues of difficulty in breathing, chronic cough and others were embedded in her mind. Every time I take another step down in my health, I can see Pam using the strength that God has given her to remember others that are hurting. I love this about her, because so often, I get my strength from her. God is so good. Love you Pam. John


Thank you so much for taking the time to write, I love hearing from you. I will be praying for you in YOUR Quiet Corner of the world if you would like me to, please leave your prayer request with your comment.
