Is It Enough?

I’ll Help You if You Let Me

I’ll Help You if You Let Me

When my husband, Todd, was almost two years old in 1970, his baby brother Brent was born.  When Brent was six weeks old, my mother-in-law noticed that something was wrong with him.  He did not want to eat and did not act right.  My in-laws took him to the doctor who...

None Like Him?

None Like Him?

“He trusted in the LORD God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him.”  II Kings 18:5 None?  There wasn’t anyone like him of all the kings?  Not even King David?  What did he do? He obeyed! He obeyed in...

How Big Is Your God?

How Big Is Your God?
