Greetings Beautiful Family and Friends!
I trust that this email finds you in great spirits today! I want to thank each of you for your kind words as Tony and I celebrated our 26th Wedding Anniversary on June 30! I certainly thank God for blessing me with a wonderful man who also happens to be my best friend! Special thanks to our fellow Deacons! It turns out, Tony and I were on duty on both Saturday and Sunday at Berean Christian Church. We slipped out of church just a little early on both days and everybody covered for us! Good looking out! I want to extend warm congratulations to our son Anthony J. Royal II! But we affectionately call him Jay! Jay has been accepted at Luther Rice Seminary and University! He will be studying ministry and we are so very proud of him! Please keep him in your prayers as he heeds the call of God.
I trust that July Leslie’s Lane is quite informative this month! When I speak with people in person, by phone and via email, their primary concern is employment for themselves or family members! I think that you will really like what I’ve got this month! There are 22 top employers in the country that are recruiting thousands of new employees at this time! You can find the companies and their direct links at the very end of this month’s Leslie’s Lane! There are plenty of FREE and discounted offers as well as really nice events for you to look over as well!
Thanks so much everyone! Enjoy your weekend and enjoy July Leslie’s Lane!

I do want to share one thing…… as a little girl, I absolutely loved Vacation Bible School! At Berean, we have so many educational and enrichment opportunities such as Bible Study, School of Ministry and MasterLife. This year, we had Vacation Bible School with FREE dinner each day! And when I tell you it was amazing! Dr. and Lady Lee taught the married couples class entitled “PMS: Power, Money and Sex”. On the first day, they taught Power (Submission). The second day was Money (Finances). The third day was Sex (Intimacy). They really did an excellent job! They have the series on CD and DVD. If you are married, I would encourage you to call our church and order the DVD. The number is 770.593.4421. You and your spouse will be blessed indeed!
