I hear it often, “I don’t know how you find the time to do everything you do.” Friends, family, acquaintances are puzzled at how I get so many things done in a day. I’ll be honest with you–my to do list is very long and it is never completed. Many days I feel like I […]

Decisions, decisions, decisions–they are a daily part of our journey in this life. We cannot avoid the choices that await us. I am so very thankful for the privilege of communication with the Lord, for His Word, and for fellow believers on my journey. I do not know where I would be if it were […]
