Six Ways Parents Destroy...

God promises, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6).

Marriage: Sharing the Pie

Michael Pearl

Love doesn’t keep accounts. It doesn’t keep score. When we start keeping score, it’s a game—a game where we are counting winners and losers.

Karen Sargent

Psalm 107 to Heal Depression

Erin Harrison

The painting you see above was painted when I was about 20 years old, when I came to see that God was dwelling in my heart and driving out the darkness and shame bit by bit. It was in the form of a daisy I picked one day. My center was a glowing sun with the brightness of the glory of God, but each petal withered and dying. Then I saw myself planted in his life-giving waters. Suddenly there was life in the petals and each one became pure white.
