  • God is in the life-changing business. He takes a life that is bent and straightens it; a shattered one and puts it together again; and a dirty one and cleans it.

    There are two basic opinions as to how God changes a life.

  •  Everyone’s first thought that comes to mind when thinking about February is of course, Valentine’s Day. Every year, this day is used to celebrate those we care about and love. Not only should we use this month to remember those who have taken a place in our hearts, we should also use this month as a reminder to keep our heart healthy. Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States and it is very important that people know how to eat healthy to decrease their risk of developing this deadly disease.
