For the last six months, our household has been busy planning the wedding of our youngest daughter.  The prospective bridegroom asked for her hand last February and we were thrilled for them both.  It took eight long months before he felt the time was right and actually proposed to the...

It was so encouraging to hear Tom and Alicia Voster share their step-by-step journey of faith and obedience on March 19. The three-part approach to missions of Pray, Send, Go resonated with me. It’s pretty obvious that without someone doing the praying, without someone doing the...

Called by the Most High During one of my devotions years ago I read the true story of a young Englishman who was held prisoner in a German prison camp for a long period of time during World War II. Like in most prisons, there are countless hours to waste and the Bible usually makes its way into...

  I, like most of us, don’t seem to realize how much I love and enjoy someone until they are no longer in my life.  I am not really talking about the immediate circle of one’s family, but rather those who have joined you on your life journey.  You know who I...

At a time in our nation when so many people are looking to political leaders to make their world better, we need to recognize that this time in history is the perfect opportunity to give someone a reason to hope in God, not human leadership. Only God can save us from despair and give us life...
