Don't Drive Blindfolded in Alabama

Don't Drive Blindfolded in Alabama

I recently heard about a car accident in which a driver ran a red light because he was texting. He collided with another vehicle and injured the passengers. Whenever we hear about something like this, we generally shake our heads, not only at the recklessness involved but also because it happens to be against the law in most states to text while you're driving.

A Mother's Prayers on the Battlefield

A Mother's Prayers on the Battlefield

Today's military-themed Miracle Monday was submitted by Sister Mary Ann Heaps. There is still time to submit your miracles for this month. Please contact us with your story.

I want to honor the Lord for protecting my late husband Rusty Heaps in battle during his service with the U.S. Navy during WWII.

May is a good month for me to tell this story – May 1 is “May Day” (an international stress signal), May 8 is VE Day, May 16 was Rusty’s birthdate, May 17 is Armed Forces Day and May 30 is the traditional Memorial Day.

Spread the Good Word: Deuteronomy 5:33

Here's a little something to spread the love. Can you say "It is well with me and my soul" today? 

Not a Morning Person

Written by Sister Vicki Ali on Thursday, 08 May 2014. Posted in Devotional Hits 1860

Not a Morning Person

I am not a morning person, but rather one of those people described as "Instant human. Just add coffee." Before my initial java intake level reaches the bottom line shown in this photo, I consider the phrase "Good morning" an oxymoron.

Good news. I do not stay in this negative state long. I perk up, but it is a slow, unwinding process that cannot be rushed for people wired like me. So against my very nature, I get up an hour before I need to get ready for work, as every fiber of my being cries to stay in bed until the last possible second.

The Prayer of a Child

The Prayer of a Child

Today, we're sharing an experience contributed by Sister Enza Traina Pusillo. This reminds us to always take matters to God in prayer first.

This happened when my son Sal was 10 years old. He was sitting at the kitchen table after coming home from school. My back was to him since I was putting away some groceries. He was directly behind me, sitting at the end of the kitchen table between the table and my Formica counter top. As we talked about his day, he told me he was hungry. With my back still to him, I told him to grab a piece of fruit from the bowl on the table and that I would be making dinner shortly.

Four Steps to Forgiveness

"Mommmm! Tommy cut all my doll's hair off!"

"Tommy! That's not nice! Say you're sorry."

(Giggling and mischievous) "Sorry."

"Mom, he's NOT sorry."

"Tommy, say you're sorry again — and mean it."

Gliding Away from Danger

Gliding Away from Danger

Today's Miracle Monday is an oft-shared experience by Brother Otto Henderson. We're happy to share this with you to kick off our month of military-related miracles. If you haven't sent yours in, there's still time! Click here to share your story.

When I was in the army during World War II, I was stationed overseas in England, and the military needed to transport us over to Holland and Germany. I remember all the men were all gathered in ranks in a big field, and an officer was speaking to us. I remember I was in the third row on the left side, and just a few yards away from were a row of military gliders. The officer told us that pretty soon, we'd all be flying on those gliders.

To Judge or Not to Judge?

Written by Sister Michelle Watson on Thursday, 01 May 2014. Posted in Devotional Hits 2798

To Judge or Not to Judge?

My husband watches as I get another piece of dark chocolate out of the freezer. "Don't judge me," I say with a smile as I nibble on the corner.

Saying "don't judge" is really popular right now in a casual, slangy sort of way, but what does it really mean? What does scripture say about judgment? Most importantly, is judging someone right or wrong?

What do you think?

Miracles from Branch 1

Miracles from Branch 1

Sister Lydia Lombardo submitted these powerful experiences years ago for the Detroit Branch #1 history. They are about her mother, Sister Maria (Gaetana) Molisani. They probably date back to the 1930s, and they are a strong reminder of how the Lord honors faith at any time, under any circumstances. Thanks to Sister Rosanne Champine for sending these in.

I could write volumes on how the Lord worked with our family. A healing that always stood out in my mind while growing up was a miracle my mother experienced:

9 Tips for Searching The Word

"Help! I want to read the scriptures more, but there are so many books and chapters, and I'm not sure where to start!"

Drawing closer to the Lord through the word of God is so applicable to our lives, but sometimes we struggle to fully dig into the word because — let's face it — there's so much in there! Here are a few suggestions to develop our studying habits:

A Miraculous Escape

Today is our last week of Miscellaneous Miracles, and we are sharing the testimony of Sister Lydia Link. Next month we're asking that you submit military testimonies. Please click here to share your story. (We haven't received any so far!)

Miracles are not only things of the past, but are with us today. Before I relate the miracle we experienced, it is necessary for me to describe the layout of the location in which it took place.

Spread the Good Word: Luke 8:50

We hope you enjoyed this week's mini theme of answered prayer. Whether you're deep in the valley and trying to figure out what God is doing in your life or you're on the mountain enjoying a victory, it is important to remember who to go to when we have a need and who to thank when we receive.

His Eye Is on the Sparrow

His Eye Is on the Sparrow

Today, we're continuing the week's theme of answered prayer. This testimony, related by Sister Sarah Watson, reminds us that God cares about the natural needs of our lives, especially when we have a need that feels like a very big deal.

It was after World War II and houses available for rent or sale were scarce. We were living with my husband's parents, and although they were very good to us, we were terribly crowded. We had one little girl, and we were expecting another child. We didn't have any money to buy a home and we couldn't find one to rent.

The White Cloth

Written by Sister Brenda Dominguez on Wednesday, 23 April 2014. Posted in Miracles Hits 1843

The White Cloth

Today's experience, related by Sister Brenda Dominguez is about the comfort God provides while we're waiting to have our prayers answered. When we are struggling with His timing and His plan for us, He does not leave us alone.

I woke up one morning exhausted after a long night of crying. I had a massive headache, and I still felt discouraged and broken from the things that I'd been battling against. As I continued to feel broken and cried inside of me, I asked the Lord to help me.
