  • Becoming a member of the family

    Is it just me or do you feel like the world wants to get rid of God?  Many people don’t believe in God, don’t care about God, and don’t want to hear about God, Christ or the Bible.

  • Boredom's Cure

    The good Lord never meant for any life to be bored! A famous doctor once said, “After all, the most deadly of human diseases is one which we cannot touch with a knife or save people from with drugs.
