“Jesus Is Your Savior, But Is He Your Lord?”

On Saturday, September 16, 2017, Northern New York native Janet Jerome Durham will pose the question Jesus Is Your Savior, But Is He Your Lord in a presentation at 10 am at the Adams Center Baptist Church, 13394 Route 11, Adams Center, NY. This is a free Live More Ministries quarterly program for women.

“I have posed the question of Jesus Is Your Savior, But Is He Your Lord and received a wide variety of answers over the years. The September 16 program will present an opportunity for self-examination, a time to reason together what it means to allow Jesus to set up His Kingdom in our lives and the impact, as Christian, we have in our world,” Janet said in an interview from her home in western New York. 

Janet and her late husband Jeff pastored churches from Calcium in northern NY to Niagara County for 35 years. Janet often travels to churches to encourage people to grow in their Christian walk. 

The September 16 program is free and presented by Live More Ministries, a Christian outreach program for women offered quarterly at churches throughout the Jefferson County area. The Adams Center Baptist Church Women will offer a complimentary breakfast from 9am to 9:45 am.

Award-Winning Patty Mondore to Speak & Sing Saturday, July 18 in Plessis

Singer-songwriter-author Patty Mondore will speak and sing on Saturday, July 18 at 10am-12pm at the Thousand Islands Christian Church in Plessis, NY. Her keynote message will be Where is God in My Storm? The program is a presentation by Live More Ministries. The Thousand Islands Christian Church women will offer a complimentary breakfast buffet from 9am to 9:45am.

‘Life is full of storms. Sometimes our hearts need to catch up to our heads to really know that we are not alone and that God will take us through to the land of miracles,’ says Patty, a Houghton College graduate who has written nine books and produced seven music CDs and four DVDs.

Her River-Lations video, produced with her husband Bob under the Gold Mountain multi-media production label, Jamesville, NY, earned the highest, 5 Dove rating from the Dove Foundation.

In 2010, she donated her Amy Foundation Outstanding Merit $1,000 award for Biblical reinforcement in a nonreligious publication article to The Father’s Heart Ministries, Syracuse, and Hearts for Youth, Alexandria Bay.

Patty plays piano and guitar, and often records songs set to video of her nature photography, much of it captured near her cottage on the St. Lawrence River. She is known in that area for her River-lations column in the Thousand Island Sun newspaper. Patty and Bob have also written books and produced a video about Singer Castle, which was home to a faith community when it was known as Jorstadt Castle.

Her devotional books include River Reflections, Nature Reflections, A Bird Lover’s Reflections: A 90-day Devotional and Journal for People Who Love Birds, and A Good Paddling. Her nonfiction titles include To Love, Honor and OH BOY! and Perennial Faith.

Patty works full-time as the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital Pediatric Residency Program Coordinator at SUNY Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, NY.

‘Whether I am at work or at play, on the River or at my keyboard, none of those things really define who I am. I would hope that if only one thing were to come to mind when people think of me it would be in terms of my first love, Jesus,’ Patty says.
