Martyn Lloyd-Jones was, by any fair measure, one of the greatest preachers of the twentieth century. His ministry at Westminster Chapel in London ranks among the most influential in Christian history. "The Doctor," as he was known, was a master expositor and a most effective communicator. He was also firmly grounded in historic Christian orthodoxy, with a clear commitment to Reformation doctrine and a deep concern for the vitality and integrity of evangelical Christianity.

Now, more than a quarter-century after his death, fifty-six previously unpublished sermons on John 4. The sermons, preached in 1967 and 1968, represent Lloyd-Jones at his best. Living Water: Studies in John 4 [Crossway] is a gift to us today.

Excerpt from Al Mohler's Blog May 2009


A few excerpts from the book:

This is Christianity: The Lord appears! Suddenly, in the midst if the drudgery and the routine and the sameness and the dullness and the drabness, unexpectedly, surprisingly, He meets with you, and He says something to you that changes the whole of your life and your outlook and lifts you to a level that you had never conceived could be possible for you.

Do not let the devil persuade you that you have all you are going to get, still less that you received all you were going to receive when you were converted. That has been a popular teaching, even among evangelicals. You get everything at your conversion, it is said, and nothing further, ever. Oh, do not believe it; it is not true! It is not true to the teaching of the Scriptures, it is not true in the experience of the saints running down the centuries. There is always this glorious possibility of meeting with Him in a new and dynamic way.”

"Now I want to add a few words here as an aside. I am speaking to people who in name, I have no doubt, are evangelical people and evangelically minded. I think the greatest charge that can be brought against evangelicals in the last ninety years or so, since the 1870s, is that we have grievously failed at this point. We have tended to reduce this glorious gospel, and the life that it gives, to just a question of forgiveness, as if everything happens when a person makes a decision, as though that is the beginning and the end of the gospel. The glory, the bigness, the greatness, the complete intellectual satisfaction, has not been preached and expounded as it should have been. Indeed, evangelical people have often been charged, and I am afraid it has been a true charge, of being afraid of the intellect."

Painted Patio Wall Transformation - Our New "Secret Garden"

Michael and I have discovered a Secret Garden every where we have lived since getting married in 2010.  Whether it was the creek that ran behind our first apartment in Sacramento or the tiny little space of our 520 square foot, 1962 single-wide, mobile home in Rancho Cordova, California, we were always able to discover and create a unique sanctuary to call home.  Even though, in years past, we did what we could to make our surroundings uniquely wonderful, we never had the room to go really crazy until now.

Since moving to our new home in North Carolina in May, we have not only discovered a world of exotic creatures and plants outdoors, but we have also started taking full advantage of the additional space we now have available to add our own touch of whimsy to the new "Wood's Secret Garden".

Our first major project was the Patio which joins the in-law quarters (where mom lives) to the kitchen entrance into the main house.  We have received so many questions about "…

Custom Doll Trunk with Doll and tons of clothes and accessories now available!

This took forever!  After transforming the 24 inch Bratz Dolls into "Just K.I.D.S" as part of the campaign to help rescue kids trapped in the sex trafficking industry, I got the crazy idea to convert a vintage suitcase into a doll trunk.  After making the inside compartments and decoupaging and hand painting the entire outside of the suitcase (both front and back) the set is now complete and up for auction on Ebay.
