49 Days of Thankfulness.
Day #49: BEAR VALLEY'S WOMEN'S DEAN, SHERYL TURNER (pictured here with her husband, Bob Turner).
For 50 Days, in an effort to build unity, we are encouraging everyone to declare your thankfulness for your brethren. It is time we start building each other up, rather than tearing each other down. Write a post, write a card, give a hug, whatever. But let some brother or sister know how much you love them every day of this challenge.
Sheryl Turner leads a wonderful women's program at Bear Valley. We am so thankful for her and all she does. 3 reasons why we are thankful for her involving HOME:
1. She makes new students and their families FEEL AT HOME, through her kindness, hospitality, caring and concern.
2. She is a pillar and rock IN HER HOME. She is an example to all as she cares for and loves her family as a wife, mother, nana, and daughter-in-law.
3. She has a HOME IN HEAVEN. It is easy to see her walk with the Lord. Heaven is her goal and she wants to help every one she meets to make it theirs.
I am so thankful for the pleasure of getting to know Sheryl. She is such a good example to my family and me. I am thankful the Lord blessed us by bringing her into our lives here in Denver. ‪#‎50DaysOfThankfulness‬ ‪#‎ILoveBearValley‬

Determined to Finish by B. Turner

A new class of students began a two year journey a week ago at the Bear Valley Bible Institute of Denver. The anticipation unfolds into reality. There is an overwhelming feeling too difficult to describe.

What have I gotten myself into?
How will I ever get all this work done?
Is it possible to keep this pace?

When facing overwhelming challenges, even self-inflicted, the most important question to ask is “how can we finish well?”

Spiritual leadership faces many challenges which can and will be overwhelming. These challenges can distract and/or discourage us. We must remember to ask; “how can we finish well?”

Finishing well requires a few simple steps.

Determine the priorities. Discouragement leads to quitting. Leaders cannot allow this to happen. Know what is worth dying for and give yourself to it.

Work hard. A post from a few years back about the Mumford and Son’s band shared the secret to their success. The point was a simple, but powerful truth. They work hard.

Keep your eye on the goal. Challenges bring distractions. Peter encouraged Christians facing persecution to keep their focus.

How well we finish is just as important as how we begin.
