She graciously agreed to share each week’s writing space with me. You will be the winner.
I first met Denise—a missionary kid—in Brazil when I move to Sao Paulo to work with a team of missionaries. I was just a 22-year old kid—and she was a 8-year old. Her parents became lifelong friends of my wife and me.
Godliness and brilliance did not fall far from the tree. Denise lives the traits of her parents. They are traits of Jesus.
She is a member of a multi-generation family of Christ followers going back at least to the birth of her Great-Grandfather. As a child, I heard stories of her great uncle Otto who ministered to my own grandparents and their seven children in the House, New Mexico area and later to my granddad, my mother, and her siblings— in Tucumcari, New Mexico—when the baby sister experienced a horrific burn accident at age 3 shortly after the death of their mom.
Many members of the Huff family crossed our paths and became friends. Through the years I met at least 20 members of the Huff clan. Denise’s cousins Allen, Bruce, Cecil, Charles, Dale, and Norman, along with their spouses set examples of Jesus for countless others.
Her late cousins Norman and Lurline, were dear friends during our Abilene, Texas years. They reflected the Lord’s image more than most people who pass through this life. I remember sitting by Norman one Sunday morning as he told me the story of my own granddad loaning him the money to return to his final semester at Abilene Christian College.
You get the idea–this is a wonderful Christian family.
Denise H. McEwen is a freelance writer and blogger. She does double duty as wife 24/7 and secretary with her husband John.
Denise is an encourager. She writes to cheer on other Christians in their walk with God. Her heart is especially tender for those who’ve not found God, whom God has not touched or who are not sure about God.
She loves to draw attention to God’s wonderful gifts in this world by using her gifts and resources to magnify God.
As a follower of Christ’s teachings for this age and the one to come, you will profit as she joins with me on the pages of GodReflection.Org, to reflect with her readers what it means to be a child of God.
She is always wondering about our grand God.
