Lora Jones, a precious woman of God, who knows this passage from His Word is true: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.  When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you […] ...

Secretary, First Church of God

Elkhart, KS

As I read through these notes about the J. L. Jones family, and am reminded of just how special they were (and still are though most of them are in heaven). Their lives are still having such an impact on others, even after all these years. Thank the Lord that Lora shares her story, so […] ... Read More »

Mary Lou Reid

Newberg Christian Church

Newberg, OR

What pours from a broken heart is not the same as what flows from a heart broken for God.  Lora’s heart streams with triumph where both sorrow and hope mingle.  Her testimony is beautiful in its strength and delicate in its severity.  Her story is moving and her word powerful though her voice is meek […] ...

Women's Ministry Leader, Fellowship at Scofield Farms

Austin, TX

It has been such a joy and inspiration in my life to follow Lora.   I remember when this little girl was the added bonus to her family of three wonderful brothers. Their mother and dad were always leaders in their church in Liberal, Kansas. I claim Lora, not only as a sister-in-Christ, a heartfelt friend, […] ... Read More »

I’ve known Lora for 30 years.  Her testimony is real, heartfelt, and so deeply moving that people still ask about her 4 years after she spoke at our church. Lora has experienced the deepest pain imaginable, but is able to testify to God’s healing power and His presence through every step of her journey. I […] ... Read More »

He Still Came

January 6, 2024

He Still Came. One recent December Sunday, as I stood in worship with my church family, I became overwhelmed with the incredible steadfast love of our God. The words resounded within me over and over as stories throughout the Bible flipped through my mind.  He still came! In the very beginning of time, God created […] ...
