Second Chances

I just love a good testimony, don’t you? I love to hear how God is moving in someone’s life and blessing them. Earlier today, as I was scrolling through Facebook, I came across a friends post. Reading his story inspired me and I asked him if I could share it with you. You see, some […]

A Message to Wives: Present & Future

(I think we can all learn from this. I pray this post helps us to examine our hearts and motives, and blesses us with Godly wisdom, and prepares us for our inheritance.) Every wise woman builds her house, but the foolish one tears it down with her own hands. Proverbs 14:1 As I was reading […]

Under Fire

“Cover me! I am going in!” “Go! I got your back!” This is the beauty of relationship. For this reason, relationships are important, to watch over each other and cover each other. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. When one is weak, then the other stands up and covers them with their strength. Two are better […]

1 Corinthian 13 & Marriage

If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love [for others growing out of God’s love for me], then I have become only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal [just an annoying distraction]. And if I have the gift of prophecy [and speak a new message from God to the […]
