A Better Deal You Will Never Find!
I have always prided myself on being able to find a “good deal” on anything from a pair of shoes to mountain property. I will not allow myself to be lured into buying something by a fast talking salesman.

As Temps Rise, Christian Ministry's Needs Go Up

Leave My Goat Alone

Unexpected Answers
God wants us to ask for and seek the things we want from Him but the answers to our prayers may not be what we expected. Like a good parent, he has our best interest in mind when answering our prayers and His goal is always to give us what will help us grow spiritually no matter what we asked for.

Did It Leave A Mark?
I have always wondered how brothers or sisters can have the same mother and father and be complete opposites from each other. My older brother is the easiest going, soft spoken person you would ever want to meet. I’m not. However, we did share one hobby growing up that we both enjoyed: trout fishing!

Gold Ain't Scared Of Fire
As men are measured by time and circumstances, he was greater than most. He was a man who loved God, set a great example for his family, and was respected by his friends. The eyes of this man were upon the poor and weak, for he always helped the less fortunate.

Teach Your Children
There was a popular song some years ago called "Teach Your Children."  It wasn't about religious education, but unfortunately, for many children that's the teaching they're not getting.  If we hold the Bible as the most important book to our faith, we need to study it--and to teach it to our children.  This week, Dr. Spence shares a 'fake' Bible story to show just how people can become confused if they haven't been taught.

Your Next Step
Every day we wake up to the unknown. We may think we know what the day has in store, but life is what happens while we are making other plans. Jesus could foresee everything that was coming, but we are not like Him in that way.

Secrets, Strength & Self-Control
The story of Samson has probably captured the imagination of every child who was told the story in Church. I had always envisioned Samson as a big man with lots of muscles. The great feats of strength that he performed while judge over Israel would lead you to believe he was the biggest and bravest man alive.

The Giving Tree
On Mother’s Day I was reminded of the children’s book “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein. This classic children’s story is about the love between a special tree and a boy who loved her.

In my study I have an original painting of an old church nestled in the mountains. I have owned this painting for years, but recently I have started to admire the beauty of the scenery. The more I look at the painting, the more I see in the painting.

It Is There
“I’m lost in your mystery, I’m found in your love for me.” Currently my favorite lyric right now from a song called “With You” by Elevation Worship. I have to admit that I did not fully comprehend what worshiping was until about two years ago.

The Sure Cure
I guess you could say that I am, “Navigationally Impaired.” This means that I have no sense of direction, which is a real challenge when I have to travel outside of my regular domain. I feel that I am always going east or west, but never north or south.

Jesus Wants You Back
At Easter many Christians who have fallen away from the Lord wonder if they still have a place in His kingdom. Some of us have gotten so caught up with our jobs, our children, collecting material things, and other worldly pursuits that our relationship with the Lord is a pretty low priority in our life.
