What’s Your Name?
“Becky, Kathy, Casper, Ginger, oh whatever your name is…” mom’s voice was shrill and exasperated by the time she went through the list of names in our household. She was adamant and
Monday Motivation begins with planning, preparing and of course, praying. I hope you are ready for these five essential tips from overseas. Yes, the time we spend is very important. So let’s begin today with the prayer of Moses

Greetings, Friends. Yes, the 2016 election is now history. Amazingly enough, also very historical. Franklin Graham led the charge to prayer with the 2016 Decision America Tour. We saw hundreds of thousands of men, women, boys and girls of all ages and races join hands and hearts to pray for our nation. We must keep on praying.

However, some cannot relate to God as a caring, tender and involved dad, like mine, because they’ve been disappointed by their own negative personal paternal experiences. So what’s the big deal about ‘spiritual fatherlessness’? A lot.
Are you tired of plodding through life? Like a plane on ‘automatic pilot,’ our prayers can be repetitive, predictable and even humdrum as we go through the motions. Do you ever wonder if God really hears your prayers? The remedy could be as simple as admitting un-confessed sin. Think about how it felt when you first found out how much God loved you!
