Alive in Christ Jesus | Romans 6:8-11

  Saturday Scripture   Romans 6:8-11   Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.

During the Christmas season it may be easy to forget about how awesome angels were when we’re surrounded by chubby cherubs or Elsa look-alikes, but, Moms, we’d be {Read More}

Resurrection Eggs Crack Open Easter’s True Meaning

Resurrection Eggs Crack Open Easter’s True Meaning I’ve been a fan of Resurrection Eggs for many years. I started using them a few years ago with the young women in Teen MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers). Many of these young women had never heard the TRUE Easter story, and it was a great way to share the gospel in a fun and non-threatening way.
