Has God Trusted You with His Silence?

Has God Trusted You with His Silence?

* This contains affiliate links. Is God silent in your life right now regarding situations and circumstances? I can hear the proverbial crickets chirping in mine most days. I want answers now. I want the pressure and uncertainty wiped from my life along with the sinking feeling in my stomach that says unless God shows up all is lost. Are you there too? Last Friday morning I was completely blessed and encouraged by Oswald Chambers’ classic devotional My Utmost for His Highest. {Read More}

5 Reasons to Eat Dessert for Supper

5 Reasons to Eat Dessert for Supper

Who allows their children to eat dessert for dinner on a regular basis? Well, I do and what’s more, I have 5 reasons to eat dessert for supper. Every Sunday night is dessert for dinner at the Renfroe home! It all started on New Year’s Eve.

One of the gals, a pastor’s wife and the daughter of {Read More}

Should I Have My Child Evaluated for Speech Delays?

Should I Have My Child Evaluated for Speech Delays?

When does a child begin to speak and when does it become apparent intervention is needed or should be considered? I am no doctor, but I want to share my family’s journey in hopes it provides insight and relieves worry for others. My Son’s Journey With my third child, as an infant and into the toddler years, it became increasingly evident he was not speaking or making verbal sounds as our older ones had. Milestones in babbling, saying “dada” and “mama,” passed us {Read More}

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}

The church that usually sponsors the workers’ children’s backpacks for school {Read More}

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}
