Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
If I cannot even believe that God can bring good out of my not finding a parking place, and being 5 minutes late for an appointment, then how on earth am I going to believe that He can bring good out of the Holocaust? And, it is on that level that the real test of life begins.
Life is made up of little things. Little things lead to bigger things. It is not stupid to learn to habitually thank God for all the little aches and pains of everyday life. God has promised to bring good out of every one of them. Do I believe that? The answer all too often is "No! I don't." That is the fallen heart of every sinner. But as a redeemed one, I am to grow in my belief in this.
