Good News of Good Things

“How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?

When God Answers Our Prayers

Hear my prayer, O LORD, Give ear to my supplications! Answer me in Your faithfulness, in Your righteousness! Psalm 143:1 NAS Greetings!

A Letter To New Brides

Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor; for if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion.

And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NASB   Exalt the Lord who establishes our steps! This June I celebrated my one-year wedding... Read more >>

When We Don't Know What to Say - We Pray!

When tragedy strikes, when innocent lives are taken and families and communities are torn apart by senseless violence, when we don’t have words to say but need to express our feelings of shock, confusion, disbelief, anger, sorrow, rage, fear, anxiety and a myriad of other emotions – the word of God teaches us to pray!
