About Me and I4LT

Welcome to Inspiration For Life Today! I’m so excited to have you here and be able to share the love of God with you.

I started Inspiration For Life Today to help others find the Inspiration, Encouragement, Imagination, and Enthusiasm they need or need to find anew. Also, to have some fun in the process!

Sometimes, being a Christian just seems entirely too intense and we need to have an element of fun in our lives!

Because of that, we are going to look at hobbies and fun things you can do to lift yourself and others up. There will be other links to sites with fun hobbies and interests to pursue also.

I know from personal experience that life can throw us many curves and we all need help from God and others in those times. We need some healthy doses of Inspirating, Encouragement, Imagination, and Enthusiasm.

Blessings to you as we join in the adventure to make Inspiration, Encouragement, Imagination, and Enthusiasm part of our daily lives.

I’m Fleda Bennie, the founder of I4LT. I’ve been in ministry – teaching, leading, pastoring, and writing Bible studies – for almost all my life including right now! I have a great desire to help others find the tools and resources they need in order to grow in their relationship with Christ and the Word of God.

I’m a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, dog lover, author, writer, instrument player, worshipper, motorcycle rider, Artisan bread baker, writer, author, herb grower, cello learner, essential oil user, lover of life, and survivor of the death of my first husband and cancer.

I live on a beautiful farm near a small town in Idaho and am even an Idaho native – we are a shrinking group! I’ve remarried a wonderful man and we live on the farm with 3 dogs, 2 cats, a bunch of barn cats, and various wildlife.

I’ve been in church almost every Sunday of my life since I was 19 – that’s when I was saved. My first husband and I began leading small groups just a few years later and were soon in ministry. We also started some businesses along the way as we raised three amazing sons. Today, I still serve church leadership and play my violin on the worship team.

I’ve been through the good and bad of church life but am still devoted to and love the local church. One of my favorite things in life is corporate worship. I play the violin, guitar, piano, and flute and am currently learning to play the cello.

Hopefully knowing a little more about me helps you know that I’m just like you and I’m sincere in what I write about.

I take the 4 words above very seriously – Inspiration, Encouragement, Imagination, and Enthusiasm. Each word has an important meaning in the Word of God and in our lives. I write out of my own experience and being well acquainted with the experiences of others.

The content you’ll find here is geared toward helping you in those four important areas. My passion is to see others grow in every area of life and I hope you find hope, help, and a smile here.

I pray that you enjoy and are greatly helped by I4LT! Please email me and let me know how I4LT has helped you – fleda@inspirationforlifetoday.com
