    How Memorizing Scripture Has Personally Helped Me

    This is a guest devotional by Sheila Campbell When I was a little girl, my dad encouraged my brother, sister and I to start memorizing Scripture. He was a new believer and did not know at the time of the impact that it would have on all of us. He purchased some books, that were geared for our age, that were for weekly scripture memorization challenges. My Dad promised us that if we would memorize the pages, he would give us a prize when we would see him again. (My parents were divorced, and Dad had visitation rights every other weekend.) I never realized, until I was much older, what…

    How Scripture Writing Helped Me Build a Closer Relationship to God

    Today’s key verse is James 4:8, King James Version “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.” – James 4:8 KJV Are you longing, searching, or even just hoping for a closer relationship with the Lord? In the verse above, we are told that when we draw nigh (or get closer) to God, He will draw nigh to us.

Of course, Bible reading, Bible study, and prayer are wonderful and essential ways to grow our relationship with God. A few years ago, I came across something that has really…

    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…

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…
