"My heart has heard You say, 'Come and talk with Me.'
And my heart responds, 'Lord, I am coming.'"
Let me introduce myself!
My name is Jane DeLong.
I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a teacher, a writer, and a speaker.
But the title I cherish more than any of the above is daughter of God, the One True King. And the title I long for, hope for, and yes, even strive for is "friend of God". I love God and His word passionately.
And I love helping others grow in their relationship with Him.
I have been a trained Precept Bible Study Leader.
I have been a Children's Leader in Bible Study Fellowship
and have led various Bible studies for women in my home church.
I have also led seminars on prayer in my home church and spoken at women's events in other churches.
I love starting my days with God and His Word over a cup of hot tea.
Reading and memorizing God's Word is my love, studying and teaching God's Word is my obession, and prayer is my passion. As I've read, studied and prayed God's Word over the years I have learned how to "pray without ceasing", as Paul admonishes us to do in 1 Thessalonians 5:17.
As the mama of five, I have learned how to pray through any circumstance, problem, fear, and failure.
My children have kept me close to God through the past thirty years.
Through each of their unique personalities and personal challenges God has taught me to bring it all to Him, depending on Him to give me the wisdom needed to assist each child individually. Without the grounding I have had through my personl and coorporate study of God's Word I would not have the deep, strong roots of faith that have kept me grounded through the many trials of life.
I would love to hear how you gather manna, grow deeper, and gain intimacy. What are your greatest challenges to finding soul nourishment?
