  •  When you think about an opportunity of a lifetime, what comes to mind? 

    Certainly not traveling to a place where there is no electricity. A place where kids don’t attend school when it rains, a place where there is just one location to buy ice, or a place where clothes are hand-washed in pails and laid to dry on top of big rocks.

  •  Recently I attended a meeting in which Dr. Woodrow Kroll was speaker. In the past you may have heard him on the radio program “Back to the Bible,” where he taught the Bible daily for 23 years. I came away from that meeting with a renewed commitment to sharing God’s word as he gives opportunities because without his word, all is to no avail.

    Billy Graham always said, “The Bible says ….” There is a great need today for God’s word.

  • (StatePoint) Forget cronuts, cake pops and cupcakes. Whether you’re planning an elegant afternoon tea or seeking an unexpected addition to your next brunch or cocktail party, there’s another chic pastry that deserves its day – the madeleine. These classic seashell-shaped cakes were named after their creator, Madeline Paulmier, by King Louis XV in the 18th century, so the story goes.
