Hello family of Notes and Commentary. Tyrone and QuaWanna Bannarbie would like to thank you so much for accompanying us on our blog quest in 2016. It is our hope that we have provided some words of encouragement for family leaders. May you impact your community as you serve your family and your home well. We are believing for a great 2017!
We wish to share some highlights from our year that blessed us as we reflect on Twenty Sixteen.
I made a list of prayers during our January Consecration. Each year, we participate in a Daniel Fast for 21 days with our church family at Covenant Community Church. The past two years, I have kept a prayer agenda to help me recall my prayers. I love looking back to review them. Some prayers were answered and some I just gotta keep praying. Prayer Works!
We have the testimony of the following God deeds:
1.) Tyrone and QuaWanna celebrated ELEVEN years of marriage on September 3, 2016.
2.) Our family friend, Satoya, who was diagnosed in JUN 2016 with breast cancer, is healed.
3.) Children have grown in their love for God, participating in Bring Your Bible to School Day and they used their submissions into the Virginia Parents Teachers Association Reflections Contest to share “What’s Your Story” regarding their faith. They were also Honor Roll students all year.
4.) Visits with family in GA, MD and TX.
1.) Tyrone led the Covenant Community Church Ambassadors Outreach in serving over 35 families with a full Thanksgiving basket complete with a turkey, all the fixings and a gift card.
2.) It’s been a year since I posted the sign, “Jesus Loves You” on the back of my NISSAN QUEST and we are still spreading the message of the unfailing love of Jesus. (People probably wonder does the van ever get washed because the sign hasn’t gone away. But I do wash it! I just replace the sign each time.)
3.) QuaWanna facilitated a leadership summer program in Greensboro, NC with Leadership LINKS, Inc. during AUG 2016. She submitted an article regarding the event in the Verse newsletter for Indiana Wesleyan University faculty and it was published in OCT 2016.
1.) WE STARTED THIS BLOG and have more lifestyle business ventures coming in the near future.
2.) We paid off the debt for the van. We are now driving two paid vehicles with titles in our hands.
3.) Tyrone and QuaWanna voted in the 2016 Presidential Election in NOV.
We hope you enjoy the picture presentation. (Can you spot our Bannarbie Blessing Board display?)
We encourage you to look back on 2016. Look at what the Lord has done for you. Don’t just think about it, write the things you recall on a nice piece of stationery and frame it in your prayer room. Write a thank you card to God and place it in a memory box in your family room. (The Original Love Box is a beautiful gift to your family.)
Blessings in the New Year!
