We are grateful to be a part of this community, and we are grateful for everyone whose support makes this magazine possible.

It’s our favorite time of year. It’s hard to be patient as we await its arrival, anticipating the sweater weather, college football and pumpkin lattes we know are coming. It’s even harder to be patient when we don’t know what’s coming, isn’t it? When we’re unsure how something might turn out, wonder if we’re on the right path or feel like we’ve lost our way altogether, it’s especially difficult to wait, enjoy the ride and trust the process. You know why? We’re not trusting God. 

When we choose to trust God, we can experience the peace of knowing He is in control. We may not understand the way God does things, but His Word assures us that His way is best and the only way to truly live a joyful and purposeful life. During times of uncertainty, impatience or doubt, let’s remind each other that God oversees everything. If He is leading us, calling us to do something, He will orchestrate it. We can live boldly and confidently, not because everything always works out but because we know that when we love and trust God, He is able to turn everything into something good. He can conduct every note of our lives into a beautiful symphony.

We hope you enjoy this issue and the stories of lives that God has impacted. God is the hero and author of all stories, and we’re all His greatest masterpiece.  

May the Lord bless and keep you.

Scott and Meredith Tredeau
