Bible Expo!

What is your process for selecting  Bible studies? Do you tend to select books and studies from your favorite authors? I think most of us do. It is easy and safe to choose a study from a writer you know and like. I tend to do this often but sometimes I think this pattern may…

Christmas Joy

Corrie ten Boom shared her thoughts and memories about Christmas in her book Corrie’s Christmas Memories. She loved to share about the birth of Jesus and the visit of the shepherds. When I think of this story it makes me so happy. Do you know why? Because I know that the baby Jesus was born in…
