A Happy Home

I’ve been busy preparing the story for the week. This time I had to put in some extra effort to make it special for the upcoming Father’s Day. I adapter a picture I had used in Bolivia many years ago to illustrate an article on the family. Here it is, for you to enjoy, and also as a reminder that with Jesus in the family we have a happy home.

I have been so blessed to grow up knowing Jesus, loving Jesus, serving Jesus. Nothing compares to the joy of having him in my life. I cannot imagine even a nanosecond without his presence. He is the air I breathe. He is everything to me, and with everything, I mean EVERYTHING!

I didn’t get around to writing my blog yesterday. My appointment with the doctor threw everything off track. It’s a drive from the north part of town to the south end, and the heat exhausts me. Once again I fell asleep at the computer (you’ve heard that before about me!). And I had to work on my Spanish story, which is about a boy who wanted his dad to come with him to church. God answered his prayers and one evening the dad accompanied his boy to church. The Holy Spirit worked on his heart and the man accepted Jesus as his Savior and Lord.  A life that had been chaotic was transformed. A home that had been chaotic was transformed.

That is the message I want to convey with my writing ministry—that Jesus can transform your life and your family.

Acts 16:31
“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved-you and your household.”

I wish a Happy Home was more the norm than the exception. These days we hear about so many broken homes. Not many boys and girls grow up in a happy home. What can we do about it? We can do like the boy in my story. We can pray! Let’s pray for more Happy Homes!

About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.

  1. Ese bello título! querida hermana Che, me hace recordar los años en los que asistía a Casa de Oración en Huancayo y realmente que bellos mensajes de vida saben dar los verdaderos Maestros de la Fé como usted. En una sociedad como la nuestra acá, donde el tradicionalismo callaba la boca de la personas e impedía meditar en el verdadero significado de FAMILIA, se eregía entonces estas palabras cual relampago del cielo para iluminar de gozo, esperanza y siginificado a todos los que leiamos…¡CON CRISTO EN EL FAMILIA, UN HIOGAR FELÍZ! Y hay un coro también de ella.
    Nuestro Señor, Dios y Padre la bendiga mucho, mucho mucho.
    Con todo el amor del mundo, para Usted mi querida hermana Che,
    Vicky Velasquez

    Thanks, my dear Vicky! In 1982 my husband and I had EL AÑO DEL HOGAR in Casa de Oración. Every month something different about the family was highlighted.
