Good Friday

“It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three, because the sun’s light failed. The curtain of the sanctuary was split down the middle. And Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I entrust my spirit.” Saying this, he breathed his last.”‭‭Luke‬ ‭23:44-46‬ ‭CSB‬‬ Enjoy thisContinue reading “Good Friday”

Noah’s Ark: The Rest of the Story

Last summer, my family and I traveled to visit my dad in Indiana and then decided to take a day trip to the Ark Encounter, the extravagant Bible story attraction located in rural Williamstown, Kentucky. Remembering back to my pre-K Sunday school class, I was very familiar with the Old Testament Bible story of NoahContinue reading “Noah’s Ark: The Rest of the Story”

I’m sad to see another Christ Centered Business close its’ doors

I came across Kingdom Grower’s coffee when my husband and I were at a Mardel’s store in Dallas a little over a year ago. I saw the different flavored coffees on a shelf and noticed they were located in Forney, TX. I loved their mission to support coffee growers and share the Gospel. But IContinue reading “I’m sad to see another Christ Centered Business close its’ doors”

Did You Give Up Something For Lent?

If you’re like me and was raised in a Protestant or Catholic Church, then you know what it means to give up something for Lent, (the 40s days from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday). This 40 days represents the time Jesus fasted and prayed in the wilderness, see Matthew 4:1-3. A few days before AshContinue reading “Did You Give Up Something For Lent?”

How to Make a Difference

Are you more concerned with holding people accountable for their “wrong” actions rather than encouraging them to do the “right” ones? I’ve seen this often amongst Christians who want to argue and complain against others with whom they disagree for doing what they feel is “wrong”, instead of trying to pursue the opponents in aContinue reading “How to Make a Difference”

How to Heal and Find Hope after Trauma

When I was a young adult, I would have defined trauma differently than I do now. I used to think a trauma involved an abuse victim, a soldier who experienced combat or a victim of a severe accident or violent crime. But Psychology Today defines Trauma as a person’s emotional response to a distressing situation.Continue reading “How to Heal and Find Hope after Trauma”

Why We Stopped Putting Up A Christmas Tree

I love Christmas and celebrating the birth of Christ. I enjoy the music, lights, food, get togethers with family, buying and receiving gifts, decorating and the Christmas Eve Service. A few years ago, my husband and I decided to stop putting up the tree. We had this artificial, flocked tree. It was beautiful. I hadContinue reading “Why We Stopped Putting Up A Christmas Tree”

How you read the Bible can help you understand more!

230 days ago I began a Chronological Bible reading plan in You Version Bible app. Many times before, I had begun a Bible reading plan but I usually would start in Genesis. And by the time I reached Leviticus, my life would get busy or I just got bored and moved on to something elseContinue reading “How you read the Bible can help you understand more!”

Halloween and Christianity

As a young child, I attended a Lutheran church where we would have a Halloween festival at the church and I remember my mom dressing up as a witch and dad as a vampire! I then attended a Catholic school from 4-7th grade and we would be allowed to wear costumes on Halloween and celebrateContinue reading “Halloween and Christianity”

How to get where God wants you to be

All of us have looked at another person wishing we had the life they have, but we often only see the best of that person’s life. We probably have never known the struggles they had to endure to get where they are today. We say nowadays that people show the best parts of their livesContinue reading “How to get where God wants you to be”
