Sharing is Caring
I am constantly telling my daughter, “Share with your sister.” or “Share with your cousin.” I don’t often hear adults saying that phrase to each other, yet we all make sure to instill the idea of sharing into our children. Why is that? Do we realize exactly what we are doing when we share? Hebrews 13:16 says, “Do not neglect to do good and to share what y... read all »
Communication is Key

My question is not how do we sing together but why do we sing together? What is so im... read all »
Foundation for the Future
There are many things required when building a foundation in the Lord. One of them, I’m sure we all will agree, is consistently reading and studying our bibles. It is God’s Word given to us so that we may learn about our Creator, teach the Good News and build our faith. The other day, I was told it is good to find a version I enjoy reading.

Patience
What is Patience? A word extremely common in our every day vocabulary. I thought about how I needed some this morning trying to help get our children around for the day. Then I realized I didn’t even know the meaning. I only know what I THINK the meaning is. So what is the actual definition of patience, what does the Bible say about it, and how can we apply it in ou... read all »
