    Are You Using the Right Umbrella for Protection?

    The word “umbrella” comes from the Latin root word, “umbra,” which means to shade or shadow. Ancient umbrellas were originally used to shade and protect you from the sun. From what I understand, the Chinese were the first to get creative and coat their paper parasols with lacquer and wax to make them waterproof. Whatever the facts may be, I am THANKFUL for the simple invention of an umbrella every time it rains! My umbrella has protected me from getting soaked on numerous occasions.  Unfortunately, my umbrella has also failed me a few times… On a couple of occasions, I left my umbrella at home even though I could plainly see…

    Make Those Little Cakes of Faith

    Key Verse: Hebrews 11:1 KJV What is your greatest obstacle to faith? Often, it’s what we can NOT SEE that sparks our fears.

    How to Break Bad, Ugly Habits

    Have you ever considered that bad habits are just like dirty smudges on our face? We may not think about our bad habits that often, but when our family and loved ones look at us, they’re forced to peer at the smudges we’re wearing. A bad habit that we have is often quite apparent to others…and sometimes we nonchalantly wear the same old dirty smudges year after year because we don’t put any effort into changing or cleaning up our act. Are bad habits sinful? First, know this… there’s NONE of us who are perfect. We ALL have our struggles. I will admit that I have my own weaknesses that…

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…
