Sunday evening those who were on the Sip of GIN weekly phone call were challenged by Don Boyer to answer two questions. The first one was, “What do you like the best about your Global Information Network Membership?” Having now been a constant member of this great club for more than six years, I went back and read a bunch of “My GIN Stories” that I have written and saved on my computer. What a blessing to review and relive the journey and see how God has led and blessed our lives and family in so many ways. My eyes are tearing up with gratitude, appreciation and thanksgiving as I write today’s article.
Can I find a best among so many great things? The journey has been about expansion and growth. For me, from day one I was drawn to the significance and power of the basics as described in the audio cd set, “Your Wish Is Your Command. Out of the starting gate I was challenged to be willing to learn and willing to change. As I reflect, I think the best, has been the people I have met. Individuals who were originally faces on a website or in a monthly magazine, or whose voices were simply on an audio chose to make themselves available. They were interested in helping and personally benefiting the members of the club, including our family. We have had the opportunity to meet and talk with so many people who we have come to love and appreciate over the years. Because of our connection to people in the club we have had wonderful opportunities to take specialized training from people who are at the top in their fields. This would never have happened without these relationships.
I was sixty years old, and on the precipice of burnout wondering how I could hang in until retirement, when the Holy Spirit opened the door and lead us to the Global Information Network. Our lives changed from that day forward. Now at almost 67 years old I am excited about what I do. I am more passionate than I ever have been about the connection of the Word of God to the principles God has provided to help us live our lives to the full.
Someone asked us a while ago why we were still members of the Global Information Network. I responded, because we are still getting value. I am currently working through a number of training certification programs within the club and a couple of others through members in the club. Instead of retirement, I am still going strong by God’s grace and help. I cannot express how greatly blessed I am to have such wonderful support and encouragement from within the family of the Global Information Network and from those who have stood by us from outside the club. You are truly helping me to be the very best I can be in fulfilling my God given destiny. Thank you! You are loved and appreciated.
