So many times as Christians we do not use, or we are ignorant of, the power we possess. The power I am speaking of is the Power of the Holy Spirit, which is the power of God, the supernatural in our lives. The Holy Spirit comes and resides in all people who accept Jesus as […]

I’m Sorry

“I’m sorry! Will you please forgive me?” are extremely powerful words. Those seven words are so powerful that they can be the start of mending and healing broken relationships. I can remember the first time I was listening to 18 hours of parenting tapes entitled, “Growing Kids God’s Way”. One tape in particular talked about […]
