    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.

I never realized, until I was much older, what…

    How Scripture Writing Helped Me Build a Closer Relationship to God

In the verse above, we are told that when we draw nigh (or get closer) to God, He will draw nigh to us. We get closer to someone by spending more time with them, talking to them, and listening to them. 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…

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…

    Monthly Bible Memory Challenges

    Monthly Bible Memory Verse Challenge – Month 14 – WAITING

    I’ve chosen the topic “WAITING” for this month’s Bible memory verse challenge.  Doesn’t it seem hard to wait for help or answers? Memorizing some Bible verses about waiting can help us learn to wait on God during these difficult times. (***Find the printable memory verses below the mini devotional.***) Mini devotional: Whenever I go, or a loved one or friend goes to the doctor for testing, the most anxious part is waiting for the test results. Waiting seems to wear away on my energy. Does it yours?  I think it’s because I wrestle inside my mind trying to figure out for myself all the possible answers.  What could it be? What…
