Alexander McLaren, “Faith, which is trust, and fear are opposite poles. If a man has the one, he can scarcely have the other in vigorous operation. He that has his trust set upon God does not need to dread anything except the weakening or the paralyzing of that trust” (from “The Heath in the Desert and the Tree by the River” in Triumphant Certainties: And Other Sermons, Funk and Wagnalls Co., 1905, p. 247).

Profile picture for Monica Hansen

Monica Hansen

Hello! My name is Monica. My picture perfect home is in the mtns of Idaho, where we ride UTV's and kayak on the rivers in my free time.
Religion is for the birds. I did not come to Jesus to be controlled by man. Jesus came to set the captive free and I serve him with everything I have.
I got saved late in life--by discovering and watching Kim Clement videos. He showed me a Jesus I have never seen before in my life. Walking with Jesus is not easy, But they hated him before they hated me.
Faith and Boldness, are gifts Jesus gave me. I will stand on the Word of God, no matter the cost. I stand everyday with my armor on and one day we will be relieved of duty.
I am working on 2 book releases! Exciting right? One this year - I'm hoping by fall, and the other next year. Both books Jesus gave the words to.
Ok what woman doesn't love to talk?! I know right! I love to talk all things scripture.
But I lean on Christ- He is my manager and together we conquer all that He sets us out to do. Join me on this journey, and lets study Him together.
OOH Yeah--- Don't forget your Sword--
