The Good Lord Floats a Boat

The Good Lord Floats a Boat

With all the hype surrounding the upcoming film "Noah," I wonder how many people are going to dig into scripture to get the true scoop on this godly man. Since Noah adaptations are apparently à la mode, I decided to make my own Seuss-ian retelling of Genesis 6 to 9.

When God's Directions Don't Make Sense

When God's Directions Don't Make Sense

When God commands us to do something, there may be a feeling of doubt as to how the task will be accomplished. It may appear impossible, but scripture tells a different story.

All of us know the famous verse of Paul's, Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." This verse alone should bring confidence that, through Jesus, all things can be done.

True Confessions of a Planner

True Confessions of a Planner

I wish I could be more of a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants, spontaneous person, but alas, I'm a planner. When I was in high school, I planned on going to college, meeting the man of my dreams, and being married by 21 — 23 at the latest — and being done having kids by my late 20s.

(Obviously, God's plan for me was completely different than mine.)

Puppy Love

Puppy Love

We hope you enjoyed last week's Valentine's series. It's still February, and we're continuing with animal-related testimonies and experiences. Here's one from Sister KarenJo Pandone.

When we adopted our dogs, they were 7 weeks old and paper trained, which was nice since it was November in Michigan. Buster, one of the puppies, had a habit of shredding things, paper, toys, etc. My husband, Michael, was very patient with him.

Marrying Outside The Church

Marrying Outside The Church

We're shifting gears back to you marrieds today. May this topic be thought-provoking.

I've been having what feels like the same conversation with different people about this, so I felt I should share it with you.

Growing up, I always thought that the man I married would already be a member of The Church or at least would convert before we got married, just as my grandfather and father had done. I felt that was expected of me.

Living the Single Life for God

Living the Single Life for God

For today's article, we're focusing back on the singles. Enjoy!

Valentine's Day is rapidly approaching! This invokes one of two feelings: pure excitement (usually for girls and women in a relationship/marriage) and misery (for those who are single and, let's face it, some men.) It's a day every year when we're forced to evaluate our love lives, no matter how nonexistent.

Kicking Off the Valentine's Day Series: On Singleness

Kicking Off the Valentine's Day Series: On Singleness

As promised, we're tipping our hats to Valentine's Day with a series of relationship-oriented articles for singles and couples. God instituted marriage, and scripture tells us how to make it work; nonetheless, we still find it a very difficult terrain to navigate. We hope these articles bring you encouragement and point you to God's word.

We also want to make a small disclaimer. We don't want to imply with this series that people in relationships or marriages are more important than people who aren't. If this week's articles don't apply directly to you, we encourage you to glean what understanding you can from them. If you're single, don't skip the articles for marrieds. If you're married, don't skip the articles for singles. It's important that we learn about one another so we can better support each other. 

Without further ado, we bring you our first installment, written by Sister Natalie Pezzenti.


 

Every Adoption Is a Miracle of Love

Every Adoption Is a Miracle of Love

Today we're wrapping up our weeklong Miracle Monday extravaganza. We hope you've been encouraged by the things God has done for your brothers and sisters. If you're asking God for something, He is able! Just keep seeking, keep knocking, keep asking.

Today's testimony illustrates just that. Sister Denise Bodo shares her experience with adoption. Just like a traditional birth, an adoption is a miracle every time it happens.
