PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Somedays, you just need a reminder of this truth: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). People change. Jobs change. Families change.

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Let’s talk about basketball. (Yes, Friends… it’s really me, and I’m about to make a sports analogy.) I have watched basketball before (and even made a poor attempt to play it in high school). Anyone who has seen a game knows that when a player is taking a foul shot, the opposing team will do anything to distract him from … Continue reading 2.13.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Focused on Jesus

The endurance of … Continue reading 1.29.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Isaiah 40:8 Recap

In this letter from the Apostle Paul to the Roman Christians, he said, “First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is being reported all over the world” (Romans 1:8).

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• When my husband and I were looking for a house a few years ago, there was one I was super-excited about.
