It is with a heavy heart that we acknowledge the transition of our beloved angel, Rev. Dr. Della Reese Lett. She loved us; she taught us; she made us better. We are forever grateful to have known her and experienced her in our lifetime.
We stand on the spiritual principles she instilled us. We know that death is but a transition from the body. Life is eternal. While we may shed many tears, we know that she expects us to live full lives. She expects us to stand tall. She expects us to act like the children of God that we are.
As the keepers of Rev. Della’s legacy, we are proud to carry on the spiritual tradition that she introduced us to — one that insists that with God you cannot fail.
We will keep you updated as plans for Rev. Della’s memorial service are developed.
Thank you for your love and your prayers. If you would like to join us sooner, we invite you to worship with us on Sunday at 1pm (600 W. Queen Street, Inglewood, CA 90301).
Reverend Sherri James, Senior Minister
Reverend Sheree Thompson, Assistant Minister
Understanding Principles for Better Living Church
Please continue to pray for her family, church community and fans during this time of transition.
POWER UP #5: POWER!
Scriptures: “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion…” Genesis 1:26
“The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own; but the Father who dwells in me does his works.” John 14:10
YOU ARE THE POWER OF GOD IN ACTION!
POWER IS NOT:
- Controlling other people
- Gained by force
- Taken by force
- An Idea in Divine Mind of Authority and Dominion
- Dominion over thinking + Dominion over feeling
- Your ability to produce, accomplish and, master
- Demonstrated through change
- Released by consciously speaking positive, powerful words of Truth.

Scriptures: “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell—and great was its fall!” (Matthew 7:24-27)
- Point #1 Faith is the quality in us which enables us to look past appearances of lack, limitation, or difficulty to take hold of the divine idea and believe in it, even though we do not see any evidence of it except in our minds. (Pg. 29)
- Faith shapes substance according to the pattern we are holding in mind. (Pg. 29)
- We can center the faculty of faith on our inner vision and our inner hearing, developing this faculty through prayer to know the potential God has given us. (Pg. 30)
- To grow faith, you must first be willing to listen and learn. (Pg. 30)
