Hello! My name is Laurel Villas and I am the wife of a great man named Andrew and the mother of 3 sons, Michael, Frank, and our youngest son, our 6 yr. old, Ian. I have known the Lord personally since I was 4 years old when I asked Jesus to come into my heart and life. I would not have thought a child so young could truly experience a realationship with a the living God had I not done so myself! From the very beginning the Lord has been VERY real to me. And all these years He has never left my side...or my heart. Life is hard, but God is good!!! I live in Queens, NYC, and with my family attend New Life Fellowship Church, Senior Pastor, Peter Scazzero. We are blessed with a very loving and alive congregation. In this church body Andrew serves as an elder and I work in our Center for Emotional Health and Spirituality, an offshoot ministry of NLF developed to accomodate the response to our Pastor Pete's book, The Emotionally Healthy Church. On this website I plan to share inspirational quotes, thoughts, and scriptures and more. I hope you are encouraged and challenged by what is here.

Truths to Live By

Christ is not valued at all unless He is valued above all...... St. Augustine

You're born. You suffer. You die. Fortunately, there's a loophole..... Billy Graham

Loyality to Things is Addiction, Loyality to God is Freedom .......Unknown

Do you ever sit down and wonder what is wrong with the world? Do you ever ask yourself why it is that Christians seem to have so little influence, why they seem to achieve so little, for all their numbers, in putting the world right? To each of those two questions there is ultimately but one answer. It is this: we lack the mind of Christ....... J. Arthur Lewis

Knowledge is vain and fruitless which is not reduced to practice...... Matthew Henry

Nothing sets a person so much out of the devil's reach as humility..... Jonathan Edwards

If we get our information from the biblical material there is no doubt that the Christian life is a dancing, leaping, daring life...... Eugene Peterson

If these quotes have inspired you, you may find more on my More Truths to Live By page.

Why not start out on my site, with a good devotional for the day! Once refreshed there, (be sure and bookmark it!) return here to browse through all my pages here.
