Share Your Story

I see two extremes in our society right now in how people deal with their painful stories or darker selves. On one hand, we are encouraged to stay positive and to put our best face on for others to see.

Why I Believe in Jesus—He is the Good Shepherd

I wrote previously about the night I called out to Jesus and the effect that had on my life, but I want to share more about where I was before that night.

They Cannot Censor God

If you are a Christian and you are given something to say in the name of Jesus, they CANNOT censor you. Sure, they will censor you for a time, but the Lord of Heaven will not allow this to stand. “He that sits in the heavens shall laugh.” In their attempts to shut you up,Continue reading “They Cannot Censor God”

Considering Proverbs 9:10

10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. How does fear of the Lord make one wise?
