Israel, My Personal
Journey is a 40-day devotional presented in the form of a tour. You will
arrive in modern-day Israel and conclude your journey 40 days later in the
Jerusalem of Jesus' day. As you stop along the way at tourist locations
learning of the history and geography of the land, you will be able to
reflect on God's messages through the picture stories.
Study begins on Friday, November 26th, 8 pm EST. Carol will hold
these devotionals each Friday for 40 weeks. You are not required to have a
book, but we highly recommend it because there will be reading assignments
each week. Each chapter is just a few pages, so it's very easy to
get this done each week. We have some scholarships for those who
cannot afford a book - Contact Shep if you need help buying a book.
Carol has graciously
offered to donate 100% of the proceeds from sales made through this site to
Shepherd of Hope Christian Chat Ministry.
Please be sure to mention "Shepherd of Hope" when you order so that we
will receive the donation.

Comments on the book by
Sara Arline Thrash, PhD.
Author, "Compassionate Care for the Sick and Dying"
"How do you say earth's
final farewell to the one dearest to you? How do you jumpstart depleted energies
and reinvest them after such a heart scald? Does the sadness ever go away?
With open candor, pragmatic insight, and gentle humor, Carol addresses these
searing questions. This book shouts that God is the Original Promise Keeper in
every situation - one day at a time!"
