Place of Judgment–Place of Glory

My husband and I recently repeated a part of our honeymoon trip for our 40th wedding anniversary. We visited Glacier, Yellowstone, and Grand Teton National Parks. The incredible beauty of this part of God’s creation started my mind working on spiritual themes I had not expected–themes involving a place of judgment–place of glory. Join me for some thoughts on tone of the messages of Yellowstone National Park and what lessons believers and non-believers alike can learn.

The Sanctum by Pamela King Cable

The Sanctum by Pamela King Cable is one of the best books I have read in years. A coming of age tale set deep in the Carolinas in the era of the Ku Klux Klan and rampant racism, this story of a young girl, caught in a web of abuse and lies will capture your heart. Neely McPherson’s friendship with an elderly black man is a heartrending story you won’t be able to put down. Please leave your comments, and sign in on the Rafflecopter at the end of the page for more chances to win a signed copy of this truly remarkable book.

Our World Aflame Part 6: Turning a Deaf Ear

Our World Aflame Part 6: Turning a Deaf Ear

Our world is aflame with hatred and violence and Christians are all too guilty of turning a deaf ear. Like everyone else, I have my soapboxes. After 21 1/2 years of leading women’s Bible studies, I can truly say that the most life-changing studies were on the Book of Genesis, particularly the first 11 chapters. These chapters form a foundation for the entire Bible. All of the basic tenets of our faith are set forth here. If we don’t get Creation and God’s love and purpose for mankind right, if we don’t form a worldview based on biblical principles, our faith and our ability to present Christianity to those we meet is seriously crippled. If I appear preachy, read what God has to say in the scriptures I have used. If you disagree, study these passages with the references I’ve provided. It may kindle a new fire under your faith!
