Scripture and a Picture ~ Faith

Scripture and a Picture ~ Faith

God tells us we only need faith the size of a mustard seed. He teaches us that His promises are true. If we only stop and turn to God, we will receive salvation. The road to faith seems relatively easy when I look at these few perspectives. The story of Abraham comes...
Finding Your Sweet Spot ~ A Guest Post

Finding Your Sweet Spot ~ A Guest Post

The temperature felt like ninety degrees in the noonday sun. If I looked closely, I saw steam radiating off the asphalt. Nearby, my mom looked confident and in control in her tennis skirt, hat, and sunglasses. I gazed at the volley of tennis balls distractedly,...

Scripture and a Picture ~ Home

Leaving home a few weeks ago to travel to Colorado, seemed like going to a faraway land. I spent summer vacations growing up with my family exploring the East coast so anything west was new. I set out excited to see a new part of the country, new scenery and to spend...

Sabbath Offerings ~ The Real You

Sabbath Offerings ~ The Real You

How Roly Polys Test Your Faith~A Book Review

My previous home collected roly polys like they were going out of style. Certain corners of the basement housed families of these bugs. As hard as they tried, they did not endear themselves to me. The word nuisance comes to my mind as I remember how I swept them away...
