Glenda Smith and her husband operate a honey-making small business. Glenda is not only passionate about honey, but also Scripture and her Christian faith. She has shared her faith story at parent spirituality initiatives in our Diocese.
“I love how the psalmist finds consolation and sweetness in God’s word. It has me thinking: thousands of years later, the same consolation and sweetness is available for us! Honey takes away bitterness. When I am under stress, experiencing anxiety, sadness, loss, dysfunction, worries, the honey or sweetness of God’s word alleviates bitterness and will shift our perspective. For me personally, a shift in attitude laced with grace is a daily decision. This makes me excited!
I don’t take for granted that we live in a country where our religious freedoms allow us to pick up God's word at any time and receive this sweet ‘honey’, taking away our bitterness and bringing peace and comfort! To embrace the fullness of the honeycomb I believe, we need to digest all of the word...not just take the bits that are easy or more palatable .... God’s word, sweeter than honey, reveals to us the divine plan for us. God wants His truth to be sweet to our taste! And it is...the more I read, the more I want to read...it's amazing.” - Glenda Smith
