Your Spinning Hamster Wheel – Addicted to Busyness

  My husband and I challenge one another, “If not now, when?” Whether it’s a change of lifestyle, visiting someplace you’ve only dreamed of, or a purchase you keep putting off for later, eventually later isn’t an option. We’re staring that reality in the face, making decisions instead of doing more of what we do and depending on later. When

Craving Obedience and Chocolate

  No one craves chocolate unless they’ve tasted it. For more than 50 years I didn’t give a hoot about chocolate. I’d tasted chocolate many time. But not REAL chocolate.

Apologetics and Scientific Debate – Where did you really come from?

  Do science and God’s Word butt heads as much as you’re led to believe? How was the earth created and where did mankind really come from, the hand of God or a long line of pre-human ancestors not yet discovered? Which is true, evolution or creation? Do you really know?
