Experiencing a Difficult Day?

Some days are just like that…difficult…challenging…heart-wrenching. Some nights we just need to go to bed early so that we can wake up refreshed with a new outlook. Need compassion?

Finding Stability

In my devotional reading today in Beth Moore’s book Whispers of Hope, I was challenged to think about whether I place my faith in what God is doing or in Who God is. Where is your faith placed? How do you find stability in your roller coaster life? See my review of Whispers of Hope,…
