We are continuing this week with posting our Members’ favorite bible verses as well as a random fact about them. Our hope is that this will not only help us read & learn scripture together, but allow us to connect with each other.

My Favorite Verse: The King James version of 2 Timothy 1:7
"For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
This is my favorite verse because it constantly reminds me that God has equipped us to handle everything that the world tries to throw at us. A lot of other translations use the term "self-discipline" instead of "sound mind"… I like "sound mind" because i think it encompasses both self-discipline and also alludes to elements of mental peace and clarity.
