I am Grace Ann Christian, and I am also known as Granny Annie!
I’m a child of the 60s and I grew up living next door to Motown, singing along with the Monkees, outside of Detroit, far away from the Bible belt.
Change your mind, your will & your emotions…
I have always loved to sew, cook, bake, do crafty things, garden, paint furniture…tons & tons of stuff around the house. I love it! What I didn’t realize until years and years later is how awesome creativity is for your mental state. It’s better than therapy. Whether you like to paint, scrapbook, decorate or play an instrument, get CREATIVE! It is an emotional release for your weary mind.
So, after high school, I went to Eastern Michigan University and graduated with a degree in Home Economics Education. My college education included pattern drafting and weaving. Just about perfect for me!
Change what goes on in your body…
Take care of your health NATURALLY!
It just makes sense to me that the best remedies for our illnesses are the old time remedies. When I first learned about essential oils almost 5 years ago, my first thought was, “where has this been all my life???”. I was thrilled to finally find what I had needed when my children were little and would catch the winter crud from the other kiddos they hung around. I never wanted to take a pill – I wanted to know what to do to make me healthier and stronger INSIDE my body! Just like gardening (one of my all time favorite things to do) I didn’t want to treat the symptoms of the illness – like pulling the leaves off a weed – I wanted to cut the weed out at the root so it would never grow back. That’s what I love about essential oils – the aromatic parts of plants that build up and strengthen our organs. I now have natural plant oils to use to keep me healthy!
Are you born again?
You Need JESUS!
I am almost 62 years old. Looking back, I can see the hand of God all through my life although I never heard the gospel until I was 21 years old. I didn’t know anything about Jesus until I had graduated from school and married. And then the real challenges of life began.
Through a series of unusual events, I found myself in the midst of a perfect storm of situations, but God was in the whirlwind. It was HIS doing.
Thank God, HE was in control, even when I wasn’t.
I never thought I could change my life…
I had a lot of things in my life that God needed to change. I couldn’t do it and I didn’t know where to begin! My problems were waaaaay bigger than me. I knew I needed to change and much in my situation needed to change… but for me, that was impossible. It was so out of my realm of possibility, I didn’t even think about it, I just accepted it…BUT…
With God All Things Are Possible!
God did it. He changed my life.
How did it happen? It was when I began to read the Bible and pray. I wanted to know Jesus and I committed myself to yield to whatever He told me to do. I wanted to learn from Him! Living by and obeying God’s Word has completely transformed me. God has changed me from the inside out by bringing me through the refining fires of life and in all of it He has proven His complete faithfulness to me!
God has continued over the decades to teach me, change me, lead me, guide and use me to encourage others. One thing I have learned is – my life is not all about me!
God is no respecter of persons. What He has done for me, He will do for you. His Word is Truth and applies to everyone, everywhere, in every situation.
My prayer for you is that you will allow God to change your life. Don’t think that it’s impossible! With man, it just might BE impossible, but with God ALL things are possible. Start this very day. Read your Bible and obey what you read. Talk to God in prayer and learn to hear His voice. He will change you from the inside out.
This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness.
The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him.
The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him.
