This article, by Doug Wendel, spoke to me so severely some time ago, that I felt he and I were sitting in some quiet coffee shop downtown speaking face-to-face. He is so adamant about what true repentance should look like that I had to share it with you who are dealing with the reality of […]
The Love of God

Pray For Me
A friend recently asked me to pray for her. She is living in a way that is, what I dare say, reprehensible to her savior, the Lord, Jesus Christ. She knows that her chosen lifestyle is wrong and is not good for anyone involved, yet she continues in it only asking that I pray for […]

After 2 children and the great life show business allegedly provides, the couple announced their split. The question, Where did it all go wrong? headlined the article. Huh? Do they really not know? How […]
If You Have This, You’re Doomed
If you have a hardened heart, you’re doomed unless you lay down your pride and give up your right to yourself.
