The impact we leave on this earth is often measured by what we are passing on to the next generation.

Too Much on the Table

Do you ever feel like you’re not getting what you think you deserve out of life? We know that the Bible says to simply “ask and receive,” so, what are we doing wrong? Could it be that we’re keeping ourselves from God’s best because we are putting Him in a box? We may not realize...

The Battlefield

Where do you turn when problems arise in your life? You may have many talents, resources, or even a supportive personal network as your foundation for success, but none of these can ever replace the single most powerful weapon we possess: PRAYER.

Trusting Through Every Storm

What’s your knee-jerk reaction when problems arise in your life? It’s a sad truth that even in our most frightening circumstances, we exhaust our own strength before ever exercising our faith. Sure, God gives us the tools we need to tackle, or even, prevent many of life’s problems. But, when the odds against us are...
