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 has taught Kindergarten to Grade 12 in a Public school, Christian schools, homeschool, and in an International school in China. She has four beautiful children...a baby in Heaven...a very cool husband...published three books (A Life Set Free, Mommy & Baby's Journal, and Bubs Bunny Goes to Camp) and painted a few paintings. God has given her incredible opportunities to be involved with short term missions around the globe as an Ambassador with the Department of Eternal Affairs. Her personal story is one of healing from brokenness. God took an abandoned, fearful child and is using her life to show that nothing is impossible when our lives are surrendered to God.  Her greatest joy is to bring joy to God's heart. She  sincerely hopes this blog is a blessing to you.
