Someone I am close to asked me Monday night a question I have not thought of… “If you knew when you got married that you would get divorced,  would you have gotten married at all?” My first knee jerk answer was, “NO!”.  Divorce sucks, quite honestly.

(You can read through Genesis 37 for the background story of how they got to Egypt.)Over time, different Egyptian Pharoahs decided to use the Israelites as slaves. …

I was looking for encouraging Scripture and this one popped up, which happens to be one of my favorites!Isaiah 41:10 says, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with …

C. S. Lewis is one of my favorite authors. He lived many years ago and wrote many amazing Christian books. The funny thing is, he wasn’t always a Christian. He did not grow up in a Christian home. At age 15 he even professed to be an atheist. C. S. Lewis’ life was full of many sad times. He was …
