John 14:26 King James Version (KJV) 26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. This is one of my favorite verses. I imagine the three and a half … Continue reading The Great Comforter
I was humbled by an eight year old today. I got up this morning, did a little more study for the lesson I was going to teach at church today and folded the bulletins I printed last night. I got dressed and ready, and we met up with our friend who lives a few doors … Continue reading Humbled by a Child
Our pastor was talking during Sabbath School about the "casual Christian", and the thought just keeps popping back into my head. Casual Christian. I'm not sure that I've ever been a casual anything in my life. If I'm doing something, I'm doing it. Sometimes that's to my own detriment, of course, because I pick the wrong things … Continue reading An Inconvenient Truth
We've all heard the expression, "Know your enemy". The Enemy is Satan. How well do we, as Christians know him, really? For every good and perfect thing that God gives us, Satan is right there to offer us a counterfeit, at a bargain basement price. Let's take a look at some of the most popular counterfeits he's … Continue reading The Master Counterfeiter
Have you seen the movie? It came out in 2016. Marty and I went to see it in the theater as soon as it came out. We went with another couple we're friends with from church. Although none of us are really big fans of war movies we were all pretty excited to see this … Continue reading Hacksaw Ridge

Either way, it's Friday and we're exhausted. It gets a little harder every day to … Continue reading Rest!
To be more clear, when speaking of possession in general and my friend Mary in particular - there can be periods, long periods even, when the person who's possessed might seem completely normal. This is all part of Satan's ruse, his game to make you doubt what's going on. Such is the case that I … Continue reading Possession – part 3
Let me just start by sharing a few Bible verses. I'm sure many people have read these a number of times but perhaps not connected them with the very first lie, told to Eve by Satan. What was that lie? Genesis 3:4 And the serpent said to the woman, ye shall not surely die. This … Continue reading “Ye Shall Not Surely Die”
Have you ever tried to imagine what the Garden of Eden must have been like? Think about the most beautiful, most pristine piece of nature you've ever beheld. Maybe it was a trip to the mountains; the freshness of the air, the array colors in the fall, the sound of the birds in the trees … Continue reading Don’t Eat That!
What a lot of readers may not know is that my husband and I are Seventh Day Adventists. When people find out that we're members of the SDA church one of the first questions they ask is, "What's different about your church?" A lot of people think it's some kind of cult. It's not. The … Continue reading Just Rest!
