Experts are a dime a dozen. Pick a subject- say, parenting- and peruse the shelves of a bookstore. You’ll find a confusing array of advice. They all sound convincing and well-researched, yet more often than not the experts clash in their opinions. It’s enough to make a sleep-deprived mother cry! King Nebuchadnezzar, wearied by the counsel of his experts found refreshment through the wisdom of God displayed in Daniel and friends. And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm. (Daniel 1:20) God’s wisdom is the Real Deal. Never underestimate the refreshment it brings to a world weary of “experts”.

Laura Cowan is a PMS survivor, along with her husband John, and their eight children. She adores her pastor who has counseled her through 44 years of marriage to himself. Together they enjoy quiet walks on the beach...Ha! Who are we kidding? We live on the backside of the desert. Thankfully, a very lovable flock of sheep live there, too, and let us pastor them (Calvary Chapel Bishop, California). Also, we spend a lot of time eating tiny bags of peanuts and missing connecting flights as missionaries with Poimen Ministries, whose goal is to encourage, aid, and support pastors, churches, and missionaries throughout non-larva eating parts of the world, mostly. Laura's most impressive identity rests in being a full-time beggar for grace. Not that Jesus makes her beg, it's just she’s such a piece of work. She’s managed to turn all this into fodder for conference themes and teaching in a variety of venues. Laura has published blurbs for the Chicago Sun, Sacramento Bee, and a few obscure magazines. Laura is a friend of the Karen tribe of Thai/Burma relocated to Utah, and has taught cross-cultural seminars, job training, tutoring and ESL. She is a former representative of Voice of the Martyrs and hopes you will join her in prayer and support of the Persecuted Church. View all posts by Laura Cowan email@example.com
