The Seen and Unseen World

Paul wrote in Ephesians 6: Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. (ESV) This is a profound […]

There is a longing inside each one of us to go home. Whether it is a child away at camp or visiting grandma, or an adult on vacation or away on business, or a young soldier off to serve at a distant post, our hearts long to return to home. While we all feel that […]

Fleeing to Find a Safe Place to Call “Home”

Filling the Food Gap in Ethiopia

Building a Foundation For Life

The Word of God In the Bible, the term ‘foundation’ refers to the foundation of a building during construction and the foundation of reading, believing and practicing God’s Word.

A Thousand Pictures Tell A Single Word

I love photography! Out of any qualifying hobbies out there, being a shutterbug is definitely at the top of my list.
