Finding Purpose in Broken Pieces


For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. —John 3:16 KJV Herb Kliewer was forty-nine years old when he broke his neck in a fall and was left totally paralyzed. He ended up in a nursing home where all

3 JOHN: Truthful and Tender


In this third short letter by John, he again talks about the value of truth and love.  One without the other is incomplete.  If we internalize this standard of holding onto what is absolute and gospel truth, while maintaining God’s love for all, we’ll be all we were created to be, and our influence on

Becoming a Woman of Faith


I was born into a nonreligious family; the name of Jesus was never mentioned in my home, neither was his Word. I didn’t know anything about Him and I didn’t attempt to.

JAMES: Practical and Convicting


Be careful when reading the Book of James.  He will step right on your toes if you don’t watch out.  James gives the Christian believer highly practical advice about how to live, and it can be greatly convicting. His message is clear.  Be honest.  If you are following Christ and letting Him conform you to

In Spite Of It All


I’m a registered nurse in a small community hospital. I call myself a “late bloomer,” being brought to my career a little later in life than many others. Up to a couple of years ago, you couldn’t have found anyone who was more in love with what they were doing, or where they were working.

Fainting Goats


My heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; my flesh also will rest in hope. —Psalm 16:9 I have a sister-in-law who raises fainting goats. What a contrast they are to the little leaping lambs! These goats are slightly nasty and not very pretty. They meander about foraging for food until they are startled by
