Plant God’s Words Deep in Your Heart

Psalm 119:11–13 (NIV) My young children have recently joined a program where they are encouraged to memorize Scriptures. It’s so adorable for them to work so hard to memorize the words.

Spiritual Growth: From Rags to Riches

It was a wonderful time {Read More}

Spend Time in Jesus’ Presence

Spend Time in Jesus’ Presence   It’s funny how much we grow and change in our life with God. Just the other day I was thinking about how much my devotional time has matured and blossomed, just as I have. When I first started quiet time with God I thought the goal was to learn the most about God as I could. I read commentaries and studied books. Then one day I felt God whispering to my heart, “You know {Read More}
