How may I help you?

Who knew that five words could make such an impact on someone? I recently took my 1-year-old grandson to the grocery store. I only needed two items, therefore, we were going to zip in and zip out. He loves to ride in the cart, so going to the store isn’t something I dread – it’s […]

Judge not

Once upon a time there lived a young woman. Some would say she was beautiful, while others would say that only she thought she was the prettiest of them all. Maybe it was the way she applied her makeup, styled her hair, or tried her best to keep up with the latest styles. Or, perhaps […]

Don’t you just hate it when you can’t seem to find anything to watch on tv? The other night I clicked through about 50 movie titles, finally giving up on trying to find something new and then finally turning to something old. I remembered seeing I Can Only Imagine in the movie theater a few […]

Church

This is Holy Week. If you are a believer, then you are reflecting on the death, burial, and resurrection of our Savior. It’s also a time of year when believers are encouraged to invite others to church. Why now, you ask? If someone has any knowledge about the Bible or has had any exposure to […]

Lessons in the Wilderness

What is the wilderness, anyway? Some describe it as a period of time when God reveals our unGodly desires so that we will intentionally place Him above the things of this world.

When your heartstrings get snagged

If you are a grandparent or a parent, you will be able to relate to the emotions that are tied to this story. Actually, MOST people will be able to relate because of life experiences.
