Last night I dreamed The Rapture came... and it happened just like that... just like the Bible says it will. In the middle of eating and drinking, I'd gotten up from the table, and suddenly screamed, "What was that?!" I felt as if a cat had scratched the bottom of my feet.

I can't believe it's been six years since my friend Donna Dehart passed away. I love this photo of the two of us giggling, trying to play the Wii (and failing miserably) on Christmas Day, 2008.

The flawless looking model on TV flashes her bright white teeth, but her smile doesn’t reach her eyes. Her pretend fiancé presents her with a jewelry box containing a pair of expensive diamond earrings. She looks at the camera and says you should have some too, because she insists, “You deserve it!” But I know … Continue reading The Good Life…Do We “DESERVE IT?” (Compassion Series)
Who is Jesus? God is our perfect Creator. However, when sin entered the world we became fallen, sinful, and imperfect. No sin is allowed to enter Heaven, so we cannot make it to Heaven on our own. Because God loves us, He sent His one and only Son, Jesus Christ, to become a living sacrifice … Continue reading How to Invite Jesus into Your Heart and Receive Eternal Life!
