A Mother's Love
There are times when only a mother's love Can understand our tears, Can soothe our disappointments And calm our many fears. There are times when only a mother's love Can share the joy we feel When something we've dreamed about Quite suddenly is so real. There are times when only a mother's faith Can help us on life's way And inspire in us the confidence We need from day to day. For a mother's heart and a mother's faith And a mother's steadfast love Were fashioned by God And sent from above. --Author Unknown To all the Mothers everywhere, God bless you! Be encouraged in your walk.

From the Desk of Bishop Andy C. Lewter Happy Mother’s Day
On the behalf of the Queens Ministry, I want to wish all of the mothers who are a part of our church a “Happy Mother’s Day”. You are the crown jewels of our family and we realize that we would not be what we are today if it had not been for the sacrifices and and support that you gave us over the years. We adore, appreciate and love you. We thank God for putting you in our lives and we salute you on this your day. On a personal note, let me thank all of you for your kindness and affection as I celebrated my 60th birthday. I love and appreciate you all.

Financial Literacy May’s Topic “How To Set A Budget”
Scripture Verse for the Month
By Brother James Boyd
Maybe the word budget makes you nervous; therefore refer to it as your monthly money plan. This financial spending plan is where you should start. A budget allows you to get rid of the mystery as to where your money is going daily, weekly and monthly. The purpose of a budget is to show where your net income is going and how not to over spend. With a budget, priorities are set in place such as savings for investing in your retirement, kids’ college education, the purchasing of a home and implementation of an emergency fund. To get started, one should track all of their spending for an entire month to see where their funds are going. If you paid for an item, document it. Once you have a record you can see if you’re spending needs to be adjusted in an area such as entertainment, eating out, cell phone, cable bills and other FIGURE 1-1 “like to have” categories. You can make budgeting easy by using an online tool, mint. Jane Doe’s Daily Money Dairy com/app or pencil and paper.
