“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”.
Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
The Easter season starts out as a time of reflection and sorrow, and finally culminates in the jubilant announcement: He is Risen! Christians across the globe celebrate Easter Sunday by attending services, gathering with family and friends, and sharing the good news of Christ’s resurrection. We join in this celebration with joyful hearts! Praise to the Lord God Almighty whose glory fills the heavens, and to the Son who lowered Himself to enter into our earthly existence. We rejoice in our resurrected Savior! Happy Easter from Senior Lifestyle Advantage Magazine!
Laura Frankl Pedersen Foundation President at "Choose Joy"
CHOOSE JOY FOUNDATION MISSION: “To be disciples of God and touch people’s lives as they continue to learn, believe, and trust in God, all while remembering it’s not about us, it’s about Him.”
Funding to the foundation goes to support Christian ministries and organizations, foster development of Christ-based education, and provide support to Christian charities and churches.
The Choose Joy Foundation was formed in honor of my sister, Sara ‘Gitz’ Frankl, who entered into the arms of her Heavenly Father on September 24, 2011 at the age of 38 years old. Sara lived with chronic pain for almost two decades as a result of an autoimmune disease, eventually becoming confined to her home. She wrote about her commitment to embracing the life God had planned:
“I am here to live the best life I can with what I am given, before I head back home to Him.”
