Staying Attentive and Alert to the Holy Spirit


As a part of Tyndale’s blogging community, I get to choose a book or two for free every month in exchange for a review on my blog.  Last month, I chose the book, Watch*, by Rick James because it is a theme that God has been bringing up in my life for the past little while.  (What in the world…

I grew up under the notion that the US was founded on Christian values and…

3 Things That Can Hinder Your Prayers


We are God’s children, and He loves to talk with us.  He delights in answering prayers as a good father delights in giving his children gifts.  If even earthly fathers can give good gifts to their children, how much more so a perfect Heavenly Father? But God also hates selfishness because it hurts us and it hurts others.  He does…
