Why I love the LDA
The LDA is unique in that it brings together such different people who all seek to live out their calling to serve God.  The LDA community supports and affirms each person’s unique giftedness.  Being a part of community is not defined by one’s church membership or place of service, rather it is defined by one’s identity as a beloved, redeemed child of God who is called to be God’s hands and feet in the world.  What a prophetic example to the world!

Favorite Scripture
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.  Proverbs 3:5-6
