I saw this picture the other day and I thought, “That is so me.” I am not in the habit of tearing other people down. I think it’s mean and just wrong to do that. There are some people though, for whatever reason, that feel better when they are hurting someone else.I have been torn down by a lot of …

In John 13, Jesus and the disciples were together. Jesus told them about His upcoming death. Peter was like, “No way. I would die before you will.” He was very loyal, but Jesus knew the truth and told Peter that actually, he would deny Him three times before the sun came up. Peter did not just deny that he knew …

Do you think maybe there is some positive gene that some people are born with?I’m not kidding when I ask that.Because here is the thing… I’ve had a …

Whoever said “Cleanliness is next to Godliness” is WRONG! This statement is not anywhere in the Bible.  (Can I get an amen and thanks be to God for that?) I have almost always had what I call a “messy” house. It is lived in. We live here. My children are homeschooled, they are always here. I was not blessed with …
