• Dare to Hope

    Video Version ------------------- Hey friends! I want to share a word of HOPE with you and dare you to do something, maybe a double dare! Consider these verses in the Bible: “Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease.

  • Laugh a Little

    “But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful.” ~Psalm 68:3~ These are strange times in which we live. COVID-19. Fear of economic crash. Isolation driving the extroverts crazy. We don’t want to treat any of it lightly, but we do want to lighten the burden as opportunities arise. We don’t want to laugh inappropriately, but we can certainly find humor in the little things of life and learn to laugh at ourselves. A healthy sense of humor and joy as…
