However, what if God/ Jesus are supposed to be the “CENTER” of my life, to which everything else revolves around Him?Have you ever thought about it that way?We should have a relationship with Jesus that comes before others. Even …

Andy Stanley has gotten his staff at North Point Community Church to read it as well. So, it comes highly recommended. The few notes that I took from his …

Well, I have a lot going through my head right now. Today would have been my 21st wedding anniversary. I have mixed feelings about it. My heart is broken for my friend Tommy who’s wife passed away on Sunday. Their 14th wedding anniversary was Tuesday.

I do not work and worship at the same place. I totally love both churches though and my job! Where I work partnered with some other churches. These other churches …

Yesterday’s Bible story was one I’ve heard before, but I totally had a moment I want to share with you. Here is the condensed Jill version:Joseph is the son of Jacob. Jacob is Isaac’s son, Isaac is …

One of my best friends and I were talking last night. I mentioned the fact that guilt is a powerful thing. He said, “Yeah, but regret is worse.” I started thinking.. he is probably right. See, guilt can be positive and negative. You actually might stop doing something out of guilt. Regret, well, that can’t be changed or taken back. …
