Post-Election Emotions

This election did not go as I had hoped… I had hoped for someone I could be more proud of… so I will pray that he becomes that man.  Don’t get me wrong, I woke up on November 9, thankful for an outsider heading to Washington. I am thankful for a president-elect who has promised […]

Crazy Bread

Recently, I went into Little Caesar’s needing 5-6 pizzas and saw a sign reading: “Free Crazy Bread!” The thought consumed my attention (thoughts) & captivated my affection (desires).

Hope Lives

On April 10, on Fox and Friends, Bill O’Reilly said: “No one knows if Jesus’ resurrection really happened.” If you were asked to prove the Resurrection as fact, could you? 1 Corinthians 15 includes the oldest-known New Testament passage… a CREED written shortly after the events that it records. This creed has 4 simple parts…
