What we lack, God gives to another for us! Come get it!!! And thank Jesus all the way! Jesus the Way, the Truth and the LIFE! Jesus the ONE True LIGHT!

Good day to you dear readers of FGGAM.  Dewey Moede asked me if Robert and I would write a letter to you of testimonial about For God’s Glory Alone Ministries, about what we see the ministry doing and what our thoughts are on the ministry.


As the Header of FGGAM says, “News & Inspiration From Our Heart Mind & Soul,” FGGAM Ministries is a place where God uses the gifts of many to meet the needs of all.  Personally, I find readily available encouragement, strength, and knowledge of prayer needs from FGGAM.  As the list grows, just to name a few as I scrolled through the below recent posts with the links on FB for FGGAM  …


Pastor Leonard-Diana Navarre, Hallelujah!!!! Hallelujah!!!!! Pastor Navarre is a Spiritual Mentor to me personally.  He has personally prayed for me & my husband at times God knew we needed to call on someone to pray; and Pastor Leonard taught me the power & meaning of fervent prayers from the heart of a sincere servant in Christ & the beauty and power of serving in the Glory of God to God’s Glory Alone; Soli Deo gloria.  FGGAM, stands for For God’s Glory Alone!  Isn’t God Amazing!!!

This is the place I have met him; as well as many, all serving in Christ Jesus & in a place God has gathered many different ministries, and talents together; all for God’s Glory & because Jesus has shown God’s love for the world!!!


FGGAM to me is a personal place to serve our Savior Lord and King Jesus, in a place that in some form or another also meets a personal daily need of inspiration, awareness of a prayer need, prayer leadership when we sometimes my heart is low in spirit & I don’t even know how to pray; FGGAM is place to find someone is praying and leading a prayer that personally LIFTS our hearts up to PRAY in UNITY; and a place where we can come into agreement with the prayers as the Holy Spirit provides for God’s Children.  Prayers in Truth and power in Jesus Name to both help us in God’s Way in prayer, both in a personal way (JESUS); and in the Global Prayer needs (Intercessory)!


FGGAM is a place that you can see and witness that God Cares for the world!  And a place that I have spiritually connected with many of God’s people who serve, in ways like this, just to name a few, His Angel Murchison For God’s Glory Alone Ministries – FGGAM, PTL!!! Thank you Kelly Murphy Snelgrove!!! PTL!!!! AWE of GOD!!! Thank you for sharing Pastor Don Kimbro!!!

And, more than I can mention on this page, yet, as the Lord brings to my mind, Oh How He Loves You and Me, By Shari Johnson  AWE of GOD!!! Thank you for blessing us Jeanne Deschaine Theriault , PTL!!!! We love you and yours Pastor Mark W Grothe Sr!!!!


For God’s Glory Alone Ministries – FGGAM Thank you Pastor Jerry McCullah for leading us in prayer!

Thank you for blessing us Shonda Savage Whitworth!!! We love you and Eldon Whitworth!!! For God’s Glory Alone Ministries – FGGAM, God Bless you Shona Neff!! We love you and yours!!!

And, Pastor Dewey Moede is both behind the scenes; and on the front lines for the cause of Christ.  Dewey and I have been friends for a while now; and the same God orchestrated it all!!!  There is a testimony behind every scene!!!  And, as Dewey is quick to also say, behind him is his wonderful wife, Sharon, who gives so very much behind the scene!!!  As Dewey would also say, Sharon is the backbone to their Ministry, we get to gather together, serve & celebrate what God is doing through For God’s Glory Alone Ministries!

Just yesterday, I shared; and the Spirit is leading me to share here and now also with you:  Here at FGGAM, you will find Terrific Strength from one of the writers, if not more per day, such as this week, FROM Pastor Leonard Navarre! He stated what I believe speaks volumes!  “… this little boost from God’s Word. It is always my prayer that our few moments together will encourage, but also challenge us to walk more faithfully with our Lord Jesus Christ.




Robert & I appreciate FGGAM Dewey! A wonderful place to gather & serve! AND to God be the Glory that we can be a part of the Team for Christ God has put together …Planting seeds in the same garden with all those who serve. EACH day I am amazed at the parts and pieces from each person who serves. I HOPE I said that right from my heart. ????


And, as a testimony, to God’s Glory in the Name of Jesus, God placed this on my heart to do, BEFORE posting Hope in Today Ministries, Inc., Daily Devotion to God’s Holy Word!  As this is made complete as far as it depends on my part here at FGGAM, I was just led by the Holy Spirit to look; and I just looked for the Scripture of the Day; much later that I ever do, but at God’s Perfect Appointed Time!


So, Let’s lift up the Name of Jesus Higher and Higher; as we build each other up Stronger and Stronger in our Most Holy Faith, God already knew, what I just discovered …

The Verse of Each Today is:

“Iron sharpeneth iron;

so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend

(Proverbs 27:17 KJV).”


And, in case you wonder or doubt, let me assure in Christ of one Truth I am made highly aware of!



Many Blessings to you in Christ!

We need each other to fill in the gaps – Where one ends, the other begins!!!  All Glory and Honor to God and Thanks be to Jesus!!!

Meet Karen: Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed. I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down. I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us. I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone. If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree. Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain? This is why I write. By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today! Jesus is our Hope! He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI. We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family. We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule. I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life. And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me! I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ! Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find! Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst. By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven. God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things. By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son! We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us. To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience. I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son. God loves you right now just as you are! There is so much to learn! I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him! Love in Christ, Karen Rowe, Director Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.
