The Submissive Wives Guide Is NOT Biblical

$2 To Be a Blessing

Friends, Church Family, and The Body of Christ, Do you have an extra $2? My grandparents were always the type to donate money or time when it was needed. I wish I could give you an idea of how truly generous they’ve been over the years, but they always helped in...

Mom Tested Natural Remedies That Work!

How Do I Deal With Fear and Fight Deception?

A Baptist’s View on Lent

I often don’t share the fact that I’m Baptist online.  Not because I’m ashamed, but because for the purposes of an encouraging Christian website, that doesn’t delve terribly deep into theology, it’s mostly irrelevant.  Plus there are some...

Don’t Let Facebook Suck The Life Out Of You

Do You Put Too Much Pressure On Yourself?

I had a breakdown half way through my Junior year in High School.  I was about to get my first C, EVER in my LIFE!  Up until this point in High School I had a 4.0 so a C (even if it was in an advanced math/physics class) was a HUGE blow. Back in High School I had this...
