How can we experience the joy and peace of Christmas when we are surrounded by hardship, difficulty and pain? Storms are a good metaphor for what happens in our lives. They come at different seasons, varying lengths and intensities. They come in the form of financial difficulties, broken relationships, divorce, sickness and death. Sometimes we see them coming, often we get blindsided.

Christmas can be a storm. A season that is supposed to be filled with wonderful celebration can be very painful and lonely for many, and we find ourselves looking for some kind of relief and stability when our world gets shaken.

What does Jesus’ coming at Christmas reveal to us about where to find stability and relief in the midst of our storms? He is Emmanuel, God with us and his coming changed humanity for all eternity.

Join us on December 3 with Beth as we focus on the one who is still mighty – past, present and forever – no matter the storm. He’s the difference maker and the game changer, who has a unique and timely Word for each of us to encourage our hearts.

About Beth Evans

Beth was raised in the mountains of North Carolina, where she committed her life to Christ as a young girl. In high school, she grew to love reading the Bible after her parents gave her the Good News paraphrase Bible as a gift.

She married Johnny Evans after graduating from N.C. State University with a degree in political science. Beth and Johnny’s first date was attending a Fellowship of Christian Athletes campus meeting and then going out for ice cream at Tastee-Freez on Western Blvd. They moved to Cleveland, Ohio where Johnny spent the next seven years in the National Football League and the Canadian Football League.

Beth is a voracious reader and usually has 2-4 books at a time on her nightstand. Her favorite genres (besides the Bible) are historical fiction and biographies. At the moment she is enjoying making her way through Herman Melville’s Moby Dick.

Her reading took a sort of hiatus 37 years ago when she gave birth to her four children – two boys and two girls all born on the same day. The challenge of raising quadruplets has been the joy of her life, taking her to a whole new level of dependence on the Word of God. When the quadruplets were eight years old, Beth agreed to teach a women’s Bible study at Providence Church for one year. That one year turned into 28. For the past seven years, she has been teaching a coed study with Johnny that meets on Tuesday nights at Providence.

Beth’s message is aglow with the glory of God and a life transformed by it. Her desire is to share the message of Jesus Christ with others so they too can live with joy and triumph.

When not teaching the Bible, she looks forward to exercise, primarily walking, and spending time with her grown children and eight grandchildren. One daughter lives with her husband and toddler son in North Africa; her other daughter lives in Brooklyn, NY with her husband and twin toddlers. She worked for Hope For New York for eight years and presently writes for Veritas Forum; one son is the Executive VP of Finance for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, living with his wife and two children in Kansas City, MO; and her other son is a pastor with Biltmore Church in Asheville, NC, where he lives with his wife and three children.
