I’m so excited about the new website our son, Nathan, has built for our ministry, and I’m especially grateful that it will now be easy, even for me, to post my blogs.  A number of young women have asked me to consistently write on issues that Christian women face.  I have listened to them and […]

Ladies, I want to take a little detour from our study in Titus 2.  Lord willing, we’ll get back to that in a few weeks. Recently, I’ve been meditating on the need for us as Christian women to cultivate the rare and wonderful quality of contentment in our lives.  So, here goes… My husband and […]

Comfort for Christians J. C. Ryle Let us take comfort in the thought that the Lord Jesus does not cast off His believing people because of failures and imperfections. He knows what they are.

Go to Church or Go to Hell Conrad Murrell People who do not go to church, go to hell. Shocking statement? Unquestionable! Can it be proven?  Only to those who believe the Bible to be the authoritative Word of God.  To those who do not, nothing can be proven; for their own darkened mind is […]

The Lethal Effects of Spiritual Lethargy The story is told of a church custodian who was heard to say, “The blower still works, but the fire has gone out.” He was relating a problem to the service man about the church furnace, but the pastor overheard his comment, and thought he was talking about him.
