Mary’s Song

Please enjoy this Christmas post by my friend Diane Virginia Cunio. While shoppers hurried into the mall to escape the winter winds, I was acutely aware of one man who, instead, was ambling to the entrance, methodically tapping his cane. He touched the door. Then he paced ten steps away. Dropping to his knees, he…

The Aleph and Bet of Christianity

Do you ever find the Bible difficult to read or understand? I think most of us could answer this with a ‘yes’. The Bible was written over a span of 1500 years by Jewish men who lived in a Jewish culture and spoke Hebrew, Aramaic, and sometimes Greek. No wonder we can have trouble. The…

Hush

This week’s blog post is by suspense writer, Leanna Sain. Her book, Hush, just released and is available on Amazon. Her bio will follow along with a link to purchase her book. It looks so good; I can’t wait to get my copy. Please check it out! How well I remember the day. My dad…

Fallen Heroes

Today’s post is by my friend Diane Virginia. She is a wonderful storyteller and I love to read everything she writes. This story was first used on www1.cbn.com for a Memorial Day post. Since it is Veteran’s Day, I thought is was appropriate to use it. I hope you enjoy it. In Ronald Reagan’s 1986…

Approaching God

I am almost finished writing my Bible study called The Jewels of Hebrews. It is a study covering the New Testament book of Hebrews while helping Christians understand the Hebraic roots of our faith. It’s called The Jewels of Hebrews (JOH for short) because each chapter is named after a gemstone such as a sapphire,…

From Daddy, with Love

Love makes us do crazy things. We sing more love songs than any other song. We hear Country songs about what a man will do for his love, and pop singers singing about the love of their life. And who doesn’t like a great love story? Hallmark movies, romance novels, and magazine articles all boast…

Which filter do you use?

A filter is a common word in today’s vernacular. Growing up, it meant a white, paper thingy you used in your Mr. Coffee to keep the coffee grains from getting into your cup of caffeine. Now, we have the French press and the Keurig, and there is no need of the big, white filters anymore….

Are you Thriving or just Getting by? Part 2

Last week’s blog post was on thriving in our spiritual lives, but this week I want to talk about thriving physically. About twelve years ago, my husband and I implemented better food choices to get healthy. We started on minerals and vitamins and gave up white flours, sugars, and potatoes. Six years ago, I started…

Are you thriving or just getting by?

My German shepherd was starving to death, and we didn’t know what to do. Sophie got twelve, yes 12 cups of food a day and at a year old, she was only forty pounds. After many tests, the vet diagnosed her with a pancreatic problem, called EPI, which kept her from digesting her food. As…

The Lies of Rejection

I originally wrote this for a friend’s blog. I am reposting here, because today I received my first rejection from a publisher for my Bible study called The Jewels of Hebrews. There was a post going around on Facebook which stated, “Don’t believe everything you think.” Its truth crashed head on into my thoughts of…
