Lessons from the Homegoing of My Mother
Heaven is a reality. The Lord Jesus Christ gives us this promise in His Word. This reality is never more evident in our lives than when one of our loved ones goes home to be with the Lord. May God help us to live each day with eternity in view.
Mother’s Day, 2016 was the first Mother’s Day that Pastor Mark Fowler spent on earth without his mother. During the homegoing of his mother, God taught Mark valuable lessons about Himself. In a Sunday message a few months later, Mark shared these lessons with his church family. The overwhelming response to the message he gave urged Mark to produce this booklet in which he shares these truths with others.
This encouraging, 24-page booklet contains timeless truths which are helpful for mothers, comforting for those grieving, and encouraging for each of us to give ourselves to that which matters most as we carefully consider life in light of the day we shall leave this world. Churches are using this booklet as a gift for mothers on Mother’s Day. It has a strong Gospel emphasis and is beautifully designed. It can be a great help and encouragement to many to consider the love of a mother and the love of God.
After serving for fifteen years on the staff of Temple Baptist Church and Crown College, God led Mark Fowler to pastor Pleasant Beach Baptist Church in Elizabethton, TN in 2012. Mark and his wife, Stephanie, were raised in Christian homes in East Tennessee. God has given them the privilege to rear three beautiful daughters, Abby, Cassy, and Maddie. Mark and Stephanie count it a great joy to serve the Lord together with their wonderful family.
