LOOKING AHEAD

Sunday, December 17 at 3:00 PM — ABW Christmas Tea with author Marlene Burling

Introduction of Marlene Burling
Author of two 365 day devotionals
"Morning Meditations" and "A Daily Walk With God"

Marlene Burling, a resident in Batavia, is a widow. She was a pastor's wife. She has 3 married children, 10 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. She and her husband began their ministry as home missionaries and later served in regular pastorates. She has been a teacher of children, youth and ladies, and has been a speaker at ladies' banquets and workshops. She has written articles for newsletters, a children's book titled "Grandma, Tell Me the Easter Story," and has completed work on a workshop titled, "There's Life After Death-(LIVING in Widowhood)." She is available to present this to churches or other groups that would be interested. She started a widow's ministry in her church for widows and singles. The group is called The King's Daughters. She was a graduate of Elba Central School in 1962 and later from Elohim Bible Institute.

What began as a personal exercise to process her grief upon the death of her husband of 51 years; took on a life of its own and resulted in a collection of 365 daily devotional thoughts, titled, "Morning Meditations," The author has captured common and relatable daily occurrences, objects, and Bible stories and written spiritual applications for daily encouragement. God used these spiritual lessons in her own life as part of the healing in her grieving process.

She has since completed her second 365 day devotional titled "A Daily Walk With God." Readers will be encouraged in both of these books to realize that no matter what they are going through-and no matter how difficult or trying it may be-they are NOT alone because God is always there. She wants her readers to know they can rely on Him for peace, comfort, direction and joy even in the midst of heartache.
