561. Godly friends who ask good questions and search for their own answers. 562. A refreshed interest in Bible reading. I had to let go of my charted “Bible in a Year” reading. It became cumbersome and mechanical. The last thing I need right now is reading the Bible out of obligation or the need

Mosaic, by Amy Grant I was given the opportunity by the really nice people at WaterBrook Press to read, share and review Amy Grant’s new book, Mosaic. When I got the email, I wasn’t quite sure what I should do. You see, Amy Grant was my idol when I was in grade school. I had

I have been working too many late nights. J5 hasn’t been taking full naps, so I don’t get lots of daytime work in, then I get on a roll and have become a night owl. It is taking its toll on me. I have a lot of things I want to write: Review on Amy

531. The exhaustion of a really hard day of physical labor 532. (Ok, so this one is a blessing, but it isn’t fun or happy. It’s just something I need to absorb.) A 6-part message on gluttony. It’s a powerful study so far, and I would love to hear feedback from anyone who reads it.
