Louise: My Relationship with Christ Is My Purpose

Mar 6, 2020 2:11:29 PM

Louise is disciplined and faithful in her relationship with the Lord. She reads her Bible every day and keeps a list of things she is grateful for—a practice that brings her joy. The kids at Anna Ogden Hall call her, “Grandma Louise.” She says, “I love to help people, give advice—do what I can to make their lives easier.” Though she has never had children of her own, she has found a family through the children and moms she lives with at Anna Ogden Hall and through the relationships she is building at her church. Bottom line, she has learned that purpose and meaning come from simple faith, loving others, and following Christ. But it was a long road to arrive at this place.

As good as I have always tried to be, if my hope is in my own performance, I am doomed. Grace requires that we recognize and admit our inadequacy, our failures and our sin.
