Butter and Sugar

“Sherry, did you take a bite out of this stick of butter?” asked my mother. My answer? “NO!” That was one lie my mother let slide when I was about 5!! It was obvious I was the culprit who had gone into the refrigerator and taken a bite out of the stick of butter. Not […]

Unrealistic Expectations

Who do you worship under that is an infallible person? I made the mistake years ago of having very unrealistic expectations of people in ministry! I realize now they are just like me, a sinner saved by grace. Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” And 1 Timothy […]

The United States of America was founded so that people could worship God freely. No ifs, ands, or buts about it!

Children

Children are one of the greatest blessings God has ever bestowed on me. To be a mother and experience the uniqueness of a life that was created by God that grew within my body for nine months is truly an indescribable experience. The intimacy and care I feel for our children is so close and […]

Don’t Accumulate Possessions

Don’t accumulate possessions. Accumulate experiences. The following is a true story, a most recent experience of a friend and her best friend. It is a story of lives “ALL IN” for Christ and ears strongly tuned into the will of God and understanding that a relationship with God is on HIS terms. The “rules of […]
