In Heart Chords Lois Williams has chosen seven themes: Longing, listening, learning, leaning, living, loving, lauding. Within these unique yet inseparable life applications, she finds, and shares, peace and harmony with the lover of our souls.
Lois is a contemporary psalmist, in the mold of the psalmist-
Pages is Lois Williams’ third book of devotional reflections. It is a collection of observations, musings, and prayers taken from the pages of her journals. The title is taken from one of the first meditations she ever wrote as she pondered how the pages of our lives are seemingly tossed about and scattered by winds of change and circumstance. Even so, the truth is that God lovingly takes those pages and binds them together to create a precious book; a book that David, the psalmist, describes in Psalm 139:15-
Pages is more than poetry. Each meditation will take you on a journey through God’s Word, from Genesis to Revelation. You may enjoy Pages as a bedside devotional, or ponder each reflection with your book club or small group. However you experience Pages, it will help you grow in God’s grace as you dig into His Word.

Single Talk Titles
False Green Eyelashes
In this talk, Lois gets us laughing as she talks about her experiences in drama as a child, and then discusses the masks we all wear, the reasons why we hide behind them and some encouragements to find our true "faces."
Using scripture in Isaiah 43:1-
We are all walking a pathway. This presentation discusses the ways God interacts with us, wherever we happen to be along our pathway. Theme verse: Proverbs 4:18 “The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter until the full light of day.”
Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda
We can paralyze ourselves by thinking we can’t do something. I used to call this talk “Paralysis”, but it was suggested that I change it to the above! I use the example of how I had thought I’d had polio as a child, and convinced myself I could not do certain things. And thoroughly weakened myself in the process so that I couldn’t. Theme verse: Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
Words of Joy
How we can have the real joy of the Lord, whatever our circumstances. Theme verse: Jeremiah 15:16: “Your words were found and I ate them, and Your words became for me a joy and the delight of my heart; for I have been called by Your name, O LORD God of hosts.”
A Father’s Blessing—A Daughter’s Heritage
Using my personal testimony of interaction with my own father, it is possible to let a father know just how much his approval and blessing can mean to his daughter.
Baskets of Joy
Similar to the above, but with a Mother’s Day emphasis. Using my experiences as a motherless daughter, encouraging mothers and daughters to cherish their relationships, and showing how God’s tenderness can fill in the gaps.
Theme verse: Psalm 78: 1, 6-
This includes some of my original poems which tell the Christmas story, with anecdotes and personal illustrations in between. These meditations have been written over the past 17 years…I write one every Christmas as our greeting to friends and family. I’ve put them together to make the story live in perhaps a new way.
