Camouflaged Blessings

For us, this is a time of weakness. Yet over and over again, God reminds me that it's good to be in need.

God of the Storm

By Meredith Mills @DazzledByTheSon Have you ever experienced a natural disaster? I’ve been through several – two earthquakes while living in California, a hurricane during my teen years in Hawaii, even a fire in the valley directly behind our home.

Did We Take a Wrong Turn?

I Shouldn’t Feel This Way

I "played hookie" on Sunday. Oh, I went to church. I dropped my family off and then sat in the parking lot during Sunday School. I just couldn't bring myself to go in. My heart was in turmoil. I was upset about how the morning was going. Actually, I was upset about how life is… Continue reading I Shouldn’t Feel This Way
