    Dealing With Grief – A Word of Encouragement from a Mother’s Heart

    Today, I wanted to share a word of encouragement from a special friend of mine, Tosha Coberley.  She’s been such a blessing to me over the past few years since I’ve had the privilege of knowing her.  She’s a godly young lady, wonderful wife and mother, but what astounds me most of all is her eagerness and desire to constantly know more of God’s Word and to be pleasing and honoring to our Saviour, the Lord Jesus. After losing her little 4 year old son in 2011, her testimony still stands strong today.  I’ve asked to share with my readers here, her insight on dealing with grief.  I hope, if…

Pin this here:https://www.pinterest.com/pin/138204282296240721/ Guest Post by Kathy McCullough, Pastor’s Wife, Hillcrest Bible Baptist Church, Arkansas City, KS Life often comes at us fast (as an insurance company used to advertise) leaving us in an undesirable situation that we do not like–a dark situation! We may find ourselves grieving over the loss of a loved one, or the constant struggle of being a caregiver to a precious one with a terminal illness such as my 23 year old daughter has been doing now for several years to her husband who has ALS. You may find that you have a new loss of finances due to a…

    The Importance of Good Christian Music – Guest Post

    *Guest post by Glenda Thompson, musician, Hope Baptist Church, Joplin Joplin, MO. [Note about our guest author: Glenda has played piano for many churches in and around the country;  she started at a very young age;  her music seems to flow from her fingers and her heart.] Having been raised in a Christian home, surrounded by Christian music, I can remember many evenings spend around the piano, singing or listening to others singing. From the beginning of time, music has been an important part of life. There are over 200 references to singing and/or songs in the Bible. Moses and the children of Israel sang a son of praise to God after…

    A TRIBUTE TO ALEX – Guest Post & Poem by Kathy McCullough

    A TRIBUTE TO ALEX – Guest Post and Poem by Kathy McCullough, Pastor’s Wife, Ark City, KS As a guest writer for this blog, I wanted to pay tribute to our son-in-law, Alex.  Alex had ALS and went to Heaven over 7 months ago. Before I go on, I am going to share this verse:  Psalm 78:19 kjv, “Yea, they spake against God, they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness.” Alex married our middle daughter and after they were married, he became a very zealous, faithful young man who loved serving the Lord.  He even was planning on going to Bible College. About two months into married…

    Lessons Learned Through Grief – Guest Post

    Today I’m sharing a guest post by Jane Coley, Missionary Wife, Kenya… December 17, 2017 ~ Three years ago today (1096 days) after suffering with the flu, our Kimberly went to Heaven, not because she was good but because she knew the Savior.  As I grieve for my daughter, there are lessons I am learning. My grief continues to teach me that… …there is no peace in asking “why” only more endless questions. …the “if only” scenarios are self-inflicted injuries we could do without. …grief is chronic: it hurts all the time, but some days are better than others. …I get lost in the dimension of time, and current events…
