What is your starting point?

As the new year starts, I think about what I want to be different this year. I know most of us use this as a time to recalibrate our lives, check priorities and see what we want to do differently. For me, I have goals that I have set for myself in different areas of

New Year, New Verse

This past year, the verse for the year was Psalms 1:3 “He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither;And whatever he does shall prosper.” For me it was a season of putting down roots and being planted.

The Power of Our Words

The tongue has the power of life and death,     and those who love it will eat its fruit. Provers 18:21 We grew up saying the little saying “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” You know as little children on the playground we were taught that when another child
