As For Me and My House

As For Me and My House

Are you praying together with your husband? I grew up in a home where we read the Bible and prayed together, every single night. I’m not saying that my sister & I always stayed awake but we were present and accounted for. When I got married, I […]

What Do I Have to Celebrate?

What Do I Have to Celebrate?

Encouraging thoughts from our friend ~ Susan Varghese: I was in the kitchen slicing up some cucumbers to make a popular Indian salad called raita.  It was going to be perfect paired with the biriyani I had cooking in the oven.  This time I even pulled out […]

It’s a Date!

It’s a Date!

Trust Regardless of the Outcome

Trust Regardless of the Outcome
