Because He lives

They say in order for an article to be read, it needs to grab someone’s attention within the first two lines. Maybe the first sentence. So what’s this about and why do I want you to read it? It’s about receiving that phone call that no one wants to get, experiencing heartbreaking fear that you […]

Prayer

If you’ve never had the opportunity to teach a Sunday School class, you are truly missing out. I recently filled in for a teacher, and although our class was small — it was pure JoY spending time with young, honest, inquisitive 1st and 2nd grade minds. Did I mention honest?

Love, Liz

About 14 years ago, I received a call from the nursing home that my grandmother wasn’t going to make it. I immediately called my husband to see if he could meet me there.

Looking for Change?

There’s two lessons I’ve recently learned that are so good, I had to share. I recently read the following in a devotion through YouVersion.
