Becoming a Fortress Family

There was a time when I even questioned getting married and having kids at all--I was leaning toward it being a bad idea. No one who was married seemed happy through my teenager eyes. But then I saw the beautiful example a peculiar family; they were like nothing I'd ever seen. They loved, and laughed, and played and seemed genuinely happy. I wanted to know why.

Light your FAMILY!

Love is really spelled T-I-M-E.  My children quickly forget a couple of small presents they received, but they treasure the memories they are making of snowmobiling in the back yard as a family, of hot cocoa by our old wood burning fire,  taking soups to families, telling Christmas stories by the tree at night, and yes.....we are carolers, because we love music, people and goodies!

Solace for Your Sad Thanksgiving: Seeking and Finding Peace

My wish for all those sad hearts is that, especially when you feel hopelessly alone, you will stop and remember where the one true source of comfort is - the Savior, Jesus Christ. Christ has been given many titles: Jehovah, Son of God, Messiah, Holy One, and Redeemer, to name a few. He has also been called the Prince of Peace.
