Ecclesiastes 1:2-5, "Vapor of vapors and futility of futilities, says the Preacher, vapor of vapors and futility of futilities, all is vanity - emptiness, falsity and vainglory. What profit has man left of all his toil at which he toils under the sun? (Is life worth living?) One generation goes, and another generation comes, but the earth remains forever. The sun also rises and the sun goes down, and hastens to the place where it rises."
These scriptures depict what life is like when we do not know the "meaning to life". All is vanity and chasing after the wind, until we come to the knowledge and understanding that there is a wonderful purpose for each of our lives and an amazing "meaning to life." That meaning is found in Ecclesiastes 12: 13, "All has been heard. The end of the matter is, Fear God - know that He is, revere and worship Him - and keep His commandments; for this is the whole of man (the full original purpose of His creation, the object of God's providence, the root of character, the foundation of all happiness, the adjustment to all inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun), and the whole duty for every man."
I searched for the "meaning to life" for 28 years and almost lost my life in the process, until that radical life changing day when I encountered the love of God through Jesus and found the "meaning to life". My hope is that everyone searching like I was for the "meaning to life" will find what I found when they read my story and begin the greatest journey ever into the unquenchable love of God. The "meaning to life" is to know our Creator God, whose name is Jesus, and His love for us. Xoxo Love Lorene!
I dedicate this book to my husband and best friend Gary who has been a kind and faithful husband and my constant encourager.

About the Author

Lorene Graham’s life changed dramatically in 1978 when she received Jesus Christ as Lord while in the darkest hour of her life. She has faithfully walked with Christ ever since that day. Lorene has been married to her best friend Gary Graham for 20 years and they live in Medford Oregon with their two dogs, Maggie a miniature dachshund and Tsunami an Australian Kelpie. Their remaining family resides in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada and southern California.

Lorene and Gary have been actively involved at the Rivergate church in Ashland Oregon now for 18 years. Their pastors, Ron and Jan Timen, officially made them Pastors of Encouragement several years ago, and they enjoy coming alongside their friends in the Body of Christ at Rivergate to encourage them in their life struggles.

Lorene and Gary also counsel couples going through rough spots in their marriage and share out of their own personal experience how to enjoy a fulfilling marriage by following God’s blueprint. Lorene has recently been hired as a part-time Respite Care Assistant at a local Retirement Community where she is involved with helping to find activities for seniors to enjoy. She also enjoys listening to their life stories.

Lorene and Gary enjoy motorcycle rides in the Rogue Valley and southern Oregon where there is beautiful scenery at every turn in the road.
