3 Ways to Help Persecuted Christians

3ways

For weeks our brothers and sisters in Iraq have been enduring harsh persecution at the hands of ISIS troops as they storm the country.  I heard on Fox News, some Iraqi believers, when faced with death were converting to Islam – and being killed anyway. Since the founding of the early church in the book of Acts, over 70 million Christians have lost their lives  because of their faith in Christ, and 65% of this immense number died in the 20th century alone. At the rate {Read More}

Inspire @ Full Strength in Christ

backpacks

What inspires you? Or, more importantly, how is God inspiring you these days? Let me tell you how God inspired Page Hughes, Chaplain Ken, and a Facebook community to be His hands and feet last week. On Thursday, Page was prompted by the Lord to deliver some school supplies to Churchill Downs in Kentucky. Unknown to her at the time was the need facing the workers’ children at Churchill Downs. The church that usually sponsors the workers’ children’s backpacks for school {Read More}

Do I Really Dare to Let God

Dirt poor and illiterate, Lewis Williams had no idea the course his life would take when he asked Christ into his heart. It was the late 1700s and neighbors knew something was different  –Christ brought a complete change in Lewis. His newfound faith led him to a Methodist church in Wales where he was asked, “If Jesus Christ asked you to do some work for Him, would you do it?” Williams, twenty-four years old answered, “Oh yes, whatever Jesus required of {Read More}

Faith and Family Building Apps

When my kids were little (infants & toddlers) it seemed I had time to listen to Christian programming such as Focus on the Family daily. Crazy I know. Now, with elementary to college-aged, there doesn’t seem to be a moment — a quiet moment at least — for much of anything. Certainly not time to schedule in a radio broadcast at specific times of the day. Thank the good Lord for podcasts! I love being able to fit in a podcast {Read More}

Book Review: Sold

Sold by Patricia McCormick

* Afflilate links Few fictional books have stayed with me, invading my thoughts throughout the day like Sold by Patricia McCormick. Maybe it’s because this fictional story is based on fact. Sold is a book I will not soon forget, nor do I want to. Due to the subject matter of this, s*x trafficking and slavery, I decided to read Sold before my teen daughter. Written for young adults, the book chronicles the journey of Lakshmi,  a naive 13-year-old Himaylan girl who {Read More}

Known by Our Fruit

Green figs on the tree.

A good tree doesn’t produce bad fruit; on the other hand, a bad tree doesn’t produce good fruit.  For each tree is known by its own fruit. Figs aren’t gathered from thornbushes, or grapes picked from a bramble bush. A good man produces good out of the good storeroom of his heart. An evil man produces evil out of the evil storeroom, for his mouth speaks from the overflow of his heart. Why do  you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and {Read More}

Will We Rise Together?

Can you picture it… For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.  And so we will be with the Lord forever.  Encourage each other with these words. {Read More}
