Leona Bergstrom > Longing to not be just older, but also wiser

American comedian Tom Wilson is quoted as saying, “Wisdom doesn’t necessarily come with age. Sometimes age just shows up by itself.” Almost synonymous with the word “wisdom” is the name Solomon. After all, he was not only a great king who governed his people with integrity and renowned good judgment; he was an esteemed philosopher, writer and teacher. Scholars widely agree that many of the words recorded in the Book of Proverbs are those of a reflective statesman and father writing counsel to the next generations. “My Son”, is often the prelude to words of exhortation pointing toward artful living and godly choices. … Leona Bergstrom is Director of Re-Ignite and Lifetime, ministry divisions of ChurchHealth. Along with her husband, Richard, Leona is co-director of 2nd ½ for Him Ministries of Converge Worldwide (Baptist General Conference).  Leona has a B.A. degree in Sociology from Westmont College, Santa Barbara, California (1973). more
