First Lady Files: glenda goree

“Becoming a pastor’s wife and even being a first lady—everyone else could see that when I couldn't—and then it just turned out that way,” says First Lady Glenda Goree of Faithful Service Missionary Baptist Church.

The wife of Rev. D.L. Goree now teaches the adult Sunday School class, leads a woman’s group, coordinates the annual women’s day conference and is a member of the First Ladies Health Initiative—and she’s more than happy to take it all on at the church that was organized by her uncle in 1962.

From The Pulpit: of Lewis Metropolitan CME -- “When Life is Not Left to Chance” Psalm 115:9-13

The people in the world around the people of God (Israelites) were worshipping idols. Objects made by man of Gold, silver, stone statutes and objects. The Lord had inspired the writer of this Psalm to write: don’t trust in something made by man that can’t speak, hear, feel or walk.

He says this to them: Psalm 115:9 (NRSV) 9 O Israel, trust in the LORD! He is their help and their shield.

What the Lord is telling them is to put your trust in Him—the maker of heaven and earth. It’s the Lord that is your help and protection in difficult times.

If I had to choose, I’d say Fall is my favorite season. The cooler temps invite you to layer up and mix and match to your heart’s content. Fall also brings a reason to change up your footwear options. But before you pull out your boots and booties, take a look at my five must have boots for Fall.

Your daily boot is the boot you can pull out at a moment’s notice and add to any Fall outfit. A dark leather boot is optimal and is easier to maintain. It will hide scuffs and dirt better than light fabric. Wear them with bright colored tights and a short dress or with a pair of jeans. Of all of your boots, these are the ones you don’t want to skimp on. You’ll definitely get your money’s worth.
