Made in the Image of God


“Human beings are made in the image of God. The Scriptures tell us that there exists an intimate and mysterious connection between human beings and the very being of God;

so much so that to wrong a human being, is to wrong God Himself. This connection is a mystery. Human beings are mysteries and should be treated as such.”As C.S. Lewis said,

“You have never met a mere mortal…”

Rev. Ryan Cook

Vancouver, British Columbia

The remainder of the C.S. Lewis quote is very thought provoking. "There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations - these are mortal, and their lives are to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub and exploit - immortal horrors or everlasting splendors." Which one will you be?

About Me

Rena was born a block away from a fascinating tide pool in Vancouver, British Columbia. (She loves tide pools, painting, reading, writing...)

She has been an  Elementary and High School teacher for 18 years -- is married and has for adult children --and has had the amazing opportunity to travel the globe as an Ambassador with the Department of Eternal Affairs.

Rena began writing her story -- one of rejection, betrayal, and healing from brokenness -- while sitting under a mosquito net in China. Two years later she put all the scribbly notes together at a guest house in Haifa, Israel. "A Life Set Free" was born.

"Bubs Bunny Goes to Camp", "Mommy & Baby's Journal", and her latest book -- "MANHUNT"-- Book 1 in "The Narrow Path Trilogy" -- are available on Amazon.

God took an abandoned, fearful child and is using her life to show the impossible is possible when our lives are surrendered to Him. He can do more than we ask or think. She sincerely hopes this blog blesses and encourages you. Blessings, Beloved.
