Every year brings new reasons for us to praise our God. We are so thankful for our loving family, faithful friends, good health and live ministry events again. Hallelujah!
I spoke at lots of great women’s events in IA, PA, MI and FL this fall. So many women made new declarations of faith; it was awesome!
Did you catch the interview on In the Market with Janet Parshall or any of the other shows I was on in 2021?
Each year, the urgency to proclaim Jesus increases. We can’t do it alone. To multiply the messengers with the message of Good News, we created Christian Speaker Bootcamp, an online course to teach aspiring speakers how to start and grow their own speaking ministry. robyndykstra.com/csbc
We’ve been hard at work on a devotional book to help women discover their next step to become more like Jesus. There were many stalls and starts, but Growing Your Faith should launch mid-January 2022.
The boys are doing great. Eli’s still living and working in Charleston, SC. As a firefighter, he needs to stay in shape, but he took it took a new level in 2021.

The Dykstra men took a hunting excursion in fall. It was a big success, as you can see. (btw, pheasant tastes like chicken)

When Dave isn’t managing ministry stuff (or managing me), he’s fishing.
