We need to carefully guard that which has been entrusted to us. Out faith, our children's faith.. the Faith of the church.

BFF - best friends forever! Really?
First of all, what is a friend? Our youngest daughter didn't diminish the value of that precious word by throwing it around loosely. She recognized early that between acquaintances and friends there were what she called 'franks'. More that acquaintances... read more

Especially battles against a faux foe! Knowing the real enemy is of primary importance.

During my third year in Bible College funds were tight due to 1) my not having a job, 2) a surprise bill from the IRS, 3) a contract payment that was no longer coming in, 4) a house payment that still needed to go out, 5) a car that wanted gas for the daily 90 mile commute to school and 6) a... read more
