Forgive yourself instead of weeping over lost chances

Post Image

Someone said, “Our lives are defined by opportunities, including the ones we miss.

God’s love makes each person unique

Post Image

I’ve mentioned before about how most small towns have unusual characters who are disrespected and mocked as an embarrassment to the community.

Bullies are a troubling product of immaturity

Post Image

As children, we only think about life on a surface level. Having fun, our toys, food and security are usually at the top of our priority list, and this is normal. However, when we become older, we hopefully begin understanding things with a more mature perspective. I’m reminded of the Scripture found in I Corinthians, […]

Train up a child and keep praying

Post Image

Every child, whether he turns out to be wonderful or less than desirable, is to some degree the product of a mom and dad.
