Philippians: The Back Story

A Walk Through Philippians, Part 1: The Back Story Anyone who says, "People don't change," never read the story of Saul/Paul. Originally named Saul, Paul was number one enemy to all Jesus followers. He made it his life's work to seek out and persecute Christians. And, when I say "persecute" I really mean he stoned,... Continue Reading →

Relationship Matters

Your relationship with God matters. That is why I wrote this journal. It’s all about Him. As Christians our ultimate goal is to have a relationship with Christ, right? That’s what we say in church.

Those Left Behind After Suicide

In fact, we probably would have been at a party later that weekend laughing about it, hugging it out...instead he killed himself. There was no tomorrow. I use the words "killed himself" rather...
