“Every Christian here is either a missionary or an impostor. Recollect that you are either trying to spread abroad the kingdom of Christ, or else you do not love him at all. It cannot be that there is a high appreciation of Jesus, and a totally silent tongue about him. Of course I do not …

Let me start off with a quote from a book I read a year or so ago titled, Women of the Word, by Jen Wilkin.  I underlined this quote because it stood out to me, and I wanted to revisit it to allow it to sink in.  “Home, church, community, and country desperately need the …

I sit here contemplating this month’s blog pondering the fact that it is Spring.  I didn’t even realize we had passed that date a couple of days ago.  It really doesn’t matter since the high today is supposed to be 36 and it is supposed to snow.  This time of year really brings out Mother …
