Putting on the Spirit

I have a confession. I have trouble being consistent with studying the Bible. I want to. I plan to. But all too often, I let things get in the way. Like sleep. Or the computer. Or chores. Honestly, the thing that worked the best and the longest was being in a weekly Bible study with […]

How Do We Know the Bible Is True? #review

Since my last post was the post where I admit I was wrong, maybe this one should be the post where I admit I am late! I hope I’m not the only one that has let something go far too long. I’m really good with deadlines. But when there isn’t an exact deadline, then sometimes […]

The Narnia Code by Michael Ward

I remember a friend of mine trying to explain The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe to me when I was around 9 or 10. At that point, I had never heard of the books, and they really didn’t sound that interesting to me. But several years later, my parents bought them for me to […]

The Reluctant Entertainer by Sandy Coughlin

When I saw the title of this book, it immediately sounded like something I needed to read. I want to have people over, but something always seems to get in my way. We’re too busy. We don’t have enough room. We can’t afford it. My house isn’t nice enough. You may have used some of […]
