Other People Exist: Simply coming to the understanding that the world does not revolve around “me” but that everybody is […]

Update on the King…

Just spoke with Dr. King. His surgery was successful and he is now home recovering. Obviously, there is pain involved. He has a lot of therapy to go through in the next weeks and months. Thanks for your prayers! I know he appreciates them. -Jamie

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all! I know it has been a few weeks since the last Consumed E-mail. I hope you had a wonderful time around the Holidays celebrating the birth of our wonderful Savior. I had a wonderful time in OH with my family and friends. I am so blessed by God to have […]

But I came across this: “Know this: God, your God, is God indeed, a God you can depend upon.” Three obvious revelations from the Holy Spirit today that are continuing […]

seeing as if in a mirror…

A member of our Consumed staff – Abby Amos – sent an email to the rest of us tonight concerning her grandfather. I asked her for permission to post it here – she consented, and therefore I will. It is as follows: my dear MN family members, my heart is grieved. it’s ironic to me […]
