The Shepherd and the Door

Happy New Year's Eve! As we transition into 2014, we hope this message fills you with peace and comfort for the year ahead.

Do you ever think about John 10:7-9 where Jesus says He is "the door" and "the Good Shepherd"? I think we generally understand the reference to Jesus being "the Good Shepherd," but why would the Lord also call himself "the door"? Seems kind of strange, doesn’t it?

Bringing Joy to the World

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! 'Tis the season to decorate, bake and share in festivities with friends and loved ones. Deck the halls, hang up the stockings, and bulk up on wrapping paper and bows.

The Lord Is My Real Estate Agent

David was a shepherd. He was a good shepherd. He may well have thought, "If my sheep could talk, they would say, 'David is my shepherd, I don't need anything.'"

Right from Wrong

Right from Wrong

"How will I know which is the right way or the wrong way?"

I've always been a huge Star Was fan. Ever since I was little, they have always been my favorite movies. As I got older, I realized there were certain parts that could be applied to my life as a follower of Jesus Christ.

Let me show you what I mean.

Strong Foundation

Strong Foundation

This past summer my husband and I decided to get our front porch rebuilt. Considering that our porch at the time was not very inviting, falling apart and very small, we figured it was time.

Attitude of Gratitude

Attitude of Gratitude

A few weeks back, I was teaching a young people's Sunday School class, and the topic was thanksgiving.

While preparing, I read 1 Thes. 5:18, "In every thing, give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."

It Is Well With My Soul

It Is Well With My Soul

Some blogs are light-hearted, other more serious. This blog focuses on a more serious topic.

Have you ever wondered about why innocent people die in earthquakes or tsunamis? Have you ever surfed the TV channels and come across photos of poor starving children in Africa? Have you ever questioned God, asking why do bad or terrible things happen to innocent children and good people?

Refresher

Refresher

Sometimes, I need a refresher. I don't know about you, but life is coming at me full tilt. If life could speak, it would scream right in my face, "Here I am, and I ain't stoppin'!"

He's Enough

He's Enough

A few weeks ago, my university hosted a Poverty Awareness Day, where we had an Awareness Fair on our student union’s lawn. At every table, there were pictures of starving children and their ailing mothers or over-worked fathers. The people I talked to told me about their dealings in some of the world’s poorest countries, and it really got me thinking.

Dodging Puddles

They are those two words that make even the bravest parent want to run and hide: POTTY TRAINING! That marvelous joy has come to our house in the recent weeks as our daughter Abigail is now 2 ½ and ready to move into greater levels of independence.

Heat of Battle

Heat of Battle

Heat of the battle. This phrase has been on my mind lately. I’ve been inspired recently by various writers to this blog who encourage us to follow through on our promises to pray for one another. And it got me thinking to not only pray but to pray fervently (Colossians 4:12) and continue with those in need through the heat of the battle.

True Universal Health Care

Before I begin, I want you to know this is not a political blog post. With that said, unless you have been living under a rock (see, there I go again with the clichés) for the last few years or you just decided to not turn on a TV or read any type of news article, you know that the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) was made law, and some of it started to go into effect on October 1.

Doing the Linger

By Sister Natalie Pezzenti

I’ve always been a lover of words. Big words and small words alike, I’ll take them all. Put those words together into a meaningful statement and you can bet I’ll remember it when I need it the most. Take one of my favorite quotes, for instance:

“Linger too long in the stench of your hurt and you’ll smell like the toxins you despise.”
