A Good Thing

Frederick Warren

Proverbs 18:22, “He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.” Can a woman be an ideal wife and mother? God created marriage because he saw a need.

Don’t Carry Your Stresses

      I was listening to one of my favorite garden radio shows based in Atlanta. Callers present their problems and the host helps identify the issue and propose a course of action.

The Need for Forgiveness

Forgiveness Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name.
 Thy Kingdom come. 
Thy will be done in earth,

And lead us not into temptation, 
But deliver us from evil. 
For thine is the kingdom, The … [Read more...]
