Who Are The Bible Belles | Ruth: The Belle of Loyalty

“A life lived in kindness toward others is part of God’s special purpose for all of us. Self-sacrifice and putting the feelings and needs of others before our own are meaningful ways we can show real love.” It’s easy to be mean. Well, it was for me.

A Different Kind Of Noise: Don’t Talk With Your Mouth Full

A Different Kind Of Noise: Faith Over Fear

I’m afraid sometimes. I’ll admit it. Not all the time, but sometimes my imagination pairs up real nicely with my fears as I ask, “God, what exactly are my next steps here?” When that happens, my mind doesn’t just wander; it runs around screaming like my silly naked toddler after her bath.  Only it’s a lot less cute than “Naked Booty Time” and a...
