Guest post by my dear friend, Jo Passmore. When I was nine I became saved. The printed message that gripped me was one that spoke of Hell in no uncertain terms.  That kind of message isn’t in vogue today and few people understand the impact a pamphlet like that can have, especially on a nine-year-old. But the years that followed…

Bucking and bolting are always unwanted horse behaviors. No matter the reason, it’s not pretty when your horse pitches a fit or streaks off at warp nine. Speed control is a beautiful thing. Horses have to learn it. Which means you may have to teach it. This article explains how to teach, not how to rehabilitate horses with deeply ingrained…

An elderly man in a motorized chair sat at the head of the Thanksgiving table. Contentment wasn’t a gift he’d enjoyed in the first eighty-four years of life. He honestly could do almost anything. Name any skill – he probably had it. Which peeved a bunch of folks, and often left him a miserable person to be around. If he…

Is your goal eternity with Christ or heaven itself? Many readers find comfort in Alcorn’s exhaustive description of heaven, alleviating fear of what happens after mortal death. What is the source of such fear? That Jesus Christ in’t enough without knowing the specifics of new living arrangements? I admit, I’m puzzled by the growing interest in heaven’s details when many aren’t…
