Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing; that my soul may sing praise to thee and not be silent.
Psalm 30: 11-12
He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these
words are trustworthy and true."

Welcome to the website of Lettie Kirkpatrick Burress
Welcome to my website! I enjoy my home in beautiful East Tennessee where I write, speak, hike :-), and love my family.
I am writing my 2012 website intro at the same time I am preparing to see my youngest son off to Afghanistan after his recent
furlough. Another painful goodbye. And more hours of seeking God for his safety. I am ever so thankful for a sovereign, Almighty God who goes
before us as our Shield and Defender . . . in an enemy war zone or in our everyday world. “The battle belongs to the Lord.” (2 Chronicles
I look forward to another year of writing and speaking (and hopefully another book). I am always amazed at the doors God opens
and His patience in pushing me through.
Recently, my patient Father in heaven has reminded me that I am still very much a work in progress. This year He would have
me grow as a “grace-giver”. I sometimes see in myself failure to extend His own gentle grace in the dailyness of life to those who may need
it the most. I am trusting the One Who “began a good work in me to complete it” (Philippians 1:6).
Come grow with me! And let me know what He is doing in your life.
