It’s easy to get sloppy with our lives and allow things to slide that should not. Dave Brannon’s comments below serve as a good reminder to “censor” our own lives.

After a grueling week to hit a project deadline at work, a long weekend can restore one’s strength. And after a prolonged time of trouble leading to a diminished faith, the Word of God can restore the soul.  (Turnin...

The Secret

Without a doubt, we all struggle with feeling discontent…the feeling that we never quite reach what we’re after. There is hope as Monica La Rose illustrates below: I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation. Philippians 4:12 READ PHILIPPIANS 4:10–19 Sometimes I suspect my cat Heathcliff suffers from a bad case of FOMO (fear of missing out).
