…I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the LORD,     listen to his voice and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life…
Deuteronomy 30:19-20
Dearest Partners in Grace, our Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

In every choice – in every thought, in every word, in every action, in every interaction, in every reaction – choose life. Choose the Lord, for the Lord is our life. The Lord is our breath Giver, our mind, body and soul Giver. And our Lord loves us far beyond our ability to comprehend the truth of his love. And out of our Lord’s unfailing love, he has given us the outrageous, generous gift of choice. And, oh my! I know my own choices have at times, and far too often, brought more death to circumstances and relationships – out of my selfishness, pride and self-centered willfulness. Praise be to our Lord Jesus Christ who chose to give up his rights and his life so that we could receive the hope and power of his love, forgiveness, salvation and transformation! May we each ask our Lord Jesus to guide and empower us, as we depend on his love and life, in every choice we make! In the big choices, in the small choices, in the public choices and in the hidden choices – may each of us choose to live out the truth that our Lord is our life!

Life-Bringing, Life-Transforming Opportunities! 
March 17-19 – Sylane will be ministering and teaching a four-session, kingdom-focused version of Harvest of Hearts called Kingdom Hearts at the Women’s Retreat for Princeton Alliance Church held at Harvey Cedars Bible Conference Center. This is a time to truly allow each one present to pull away and let the Healer, Holder and Harvester of our hearts speak to us through His unfailing, unflinching, renewing Love, Word and Spirit – throughout the sessions, the set aside quiet time, the intentional small group time, and throughout every moment spent with our Lord and with our sisters.
Jean Heiss and Cindy Fallt, will be serving as our TBG Team members.

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. – Psalm 37:4
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power! – 1 Corinthians 4:20
Please pray for our Lord to be fully honored and for each of us present to be powerfully and increasingly transformed as God’s children and as ambassadors of God’s Kingdom!
March 25 – Our TBG team – Board Members, Staff and Counselors will be taking a day together – set apart to seek our Lord’s life-bringing, life-transforming desires and plans for the ministry of Transformed by Grace. To prepare and pre-prayer our hearts and minds for this Visioning Meeting, we each have committed to reading and praying through the 40 day devotional, “Draw the Circle” by Mark Batterson. We have also invited our dear brother, wise advisor, and former TBG Board Member, Pastor Dave Ridder, to facilitate this time of prayer and visioning as we seek our Lord Jesus to show us the next steps for TBG. Please join us in prayer now, and on the day of our meeting, and for all that the Lord desires to do in us and through us so that we will bring glory to His Name and be powerful vessels of His transforming love to many, many people throughout this world!
April 29 – Sylane has been invited to speak at the Renewing the Heart Ministries Conference – the Women’s Iron Sharpens Iron Mid-Atlantic Conference in Sinking Spring, PA. She will be teaching a workshop, Break Every Chain! declaring the power and passion of our Lord Jesus who is able to empower each one of us to live in freedom from our sins, shame, fears, failures, hurts and unhealthy habits! Please pray with us that the Lord will mightily, intimately set his people free!
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free! Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. – Galatians 5:1
In my anguish I cried to the Lord, and he answered by setting me free! – Psalm 118:5
Wanting God. Willing to Go.  

A continued passion – even increasingly so – is for our Lord Jesus and his love to be intimately, honestly and transformingly known and trusted by more and more people throughout this world! I want God – and am willing to go anywhere he would choose to open up opportunities for me to speak his message – the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ who is able to audaciously, radically and beautifully save, set free, heal and transform lives – one by one by one – for His glory and for our freedom, joy and peace!
Will you join us in prayer, and actively help make connections with others locally, nationally and around our world for this to happen?
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners…They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor. – Isaiah 61:1-3
