Quotes by Pat Simmons  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
Pat Simmons, A Woman After David's Heart

“National Fatherhood Initiative.”
Pat Simmons, Redeeming Heart

“all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.’ Regardless of what problems you walked through the door with this morning, God is commanding you to throw them away with a great force—to fling, to drop, to shed, to rid yourself of all that is weighing you down, keeping you up at night, or eating you up inside. Give it to God today. Why, because God cares for you without any prejudices. He already knew about them before you committed them.”
Pat Simmons, Guilty of Love
