Are You Believing a Lie?

Have you ever been lied to? I’m sure you have at some point. Lies are misleading and very hurtful.  What makes being lied to even worse is when we believe the lie we’ve been told. The result? Mistakes, heartache, wasted time, and unnecessary suffering. In my own life, I have believed a few lies that […]

Finding the True Light

Growing up in the early 1970s was hard; during the Vietnam conflict, single mothers were commonplace. Eventually, my home life included a stepfather who was violent; he hated the children of a previously married woman—me and my two siblings. Beatings came weekly, if not daily. My mom said, “You kids will be grown one day, […]

Empowered by His Spirit

So much confusion and controversy surround the topic of the Holy Spirit. Most people don’t understand who He is. Yet the Word of God describes the Christian’s new best friend as the Holy Spirit of God. In John 14, Jesus told His disciples that He would be leaving the world to go to the Father, […]

It can be discouraging to our spirits or even destructive to our mental/emotional well-being! Let’s face it, some change can even seem, dare I say it, “diabolical!”   That’s how much we hate change! But for […]

How Does the Bible Bring Comfort?

Some use the following acronym for the word BIBLE (Basic Information Before Leaving Earth) to describe its purpose. The Apostle Paul declared that the Old Testament Scriptures were written in the past to help provide present-day believers comfort and strength now. As Paul stated in Romans 15:4, “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written […]

Why We Know the Bible Is True

Many in our society falsely assume that the Bible is a religious book filled with superstitious stories about God working in people’s lives. The Bible is also mocked by atheists who claim to be more knowledgeable than the God who gave them life. For decades, scholars made the front page of newspapers and magazines with […]

It’s a Mom’s Life

Dirty diapers, muddy shoes, mountains of laundry, filling the role of taxi driver, short-order cook, a nurse when needed…sound familiar? Yep, it’s a mom’s life and I can tell you that there are days when I feel overwhelmed by it. I will never forget the day when I had become so frustrated with my children […]

A Remarkable Discovery

One of the greatest archaeological discoveries of modern times happened by accident in 1947 when a Bedouin boy threw a stone into a cave’s mouth high on the rock face of a Judean mountain facing the Dead Sea. Startled by the sound of breaking pottery, the boy summoned his tribe to investigate, and the sound […]
