Today while eating lunch, I stumbled on a program about the death of John F. Kennedy, Jr. He was killed in a plane crash in 1999 at the age of 38.

Over the last decade I’ve been blessed to have several conversations with folks about Bible doctrine. I’ve also had several awkward moments with people, where they duck the questions or change the topic. I am not on a mission to force people into doctrinal conversations.

Babylon is… Continue reading Welcome to Heaven

I think it could be… Continue reading The Difference
Rev. 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? This verse really convicted me this morning. Not because I fear God’s wrath. I am saved, therefore, I am not appointed to suffer God’s righteous anger. When God looks at me, He sees His Son, Jesus, and… Continue reading Who Shall Stand?
I suppose my favorite story in the Bible is the story of the resurrection. Along with that, is the story of the men on the Emmaus Road. Remember that story? The men were walking along, discussing the crucifixion and Jesus walks up and starts talking to them? I love that story. Those men said in… Continue reading My Favorite Story
This past Sunday morning, my husband preached two amazing messages. Okay, I love all of my husband’s messages, but let’s be real, shall we? There have been a few of his sermons from which I’ve walked away thinking Huh? Of course, the power of the sermon isn’t in him, it’s in the precious book he… Continue reading How to Be Saved
