  • God intends that we grow spiritually. He gave us his saving grace to get us started in the Christian life but he gives us his daily grace to help us in our Christian walk and our spiritual growth. God desires that our lives be changed and that we grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior (II Peter 3:18).

    How do we grow spiritually? For some insights, read Ephesians 4:22-24. Paul says there is a two-step process in our Christian growth … throw off the old and put on the new. That is simple but yet powerful.

  • During this time of year, many people are worried about the effects of sun exposure. We all need some sun exposure; it’s our primary source of vitamin D which helps build strong, healthy bones. However, too much unprotected exposure to the sun can cause skin damage, eye damage and even cancer. For this reason, it is very important for people to learn about the risks associated with overexposure to the sun and take the appropriate precautions to enjoy outdoor fun safely.

  • One of the most fearful concepts in life is the utter termination of a cherished relationship. Whether we call it abandoning, forsaking, giving up on us or rejection, the portrait is of a sharp line drawn in a relationship. One of the greatest consequences of being abandoned is that it threatens our feeling of self-worth.

  • Relationships with people change. They may grow closer or they may grow further apart. This is also true of our relationship with God. When we have a strong, healthy relationship to Jesus, it must be maintained for no relationship will remain the same. Good relationships take work and time or we grow further apart.
