There is no greater joy than to raise up a child who is completely dependent on you, looks to you for everything, hangs onto your every word and does their best to mimic your every move. Sounds great doesn’t it!!! There is also no greater responsibility that a parent/guardian can have than the raising, nurturing, the development, and continuous education of a child.

Secrets. Everyone has them and few are willing to come clean. They destroy relationships and may very well turn your impeccable world upside down. Writer Robin Baker understood this and wrote about it in the stage play, “The Best Kept Secrets”.
Today is our birthday and we are one! On May 3rd 2010 SO DIVINE launched in hopes of reaching out to many individuals across the globe and we’ve done just that!
I was shocked when my friend told me that it took her a long time to believe that God loved her. But I was even more shocked when I found myself thinking the very same thing.
Are you a God chaser? I am. What do I mean by that? I’m glad you asked. I have prayed, cried, hollered, kicked scratched (Well…, not really, but you get the idea), and basically poured my heart out to God for more of him
Lately I have been bombarded with statements from many self proclaimed non-Christians that “we believe in the same God”. And I like to tell them, “No way!”
Do you know you have a call on your life? Maybe you probably already know that. Or maybe you don’t know that. Or maybe you’ve been sensing that the Lord is calling you to something but you don’t know what it is. Or maybe you are searching for that calling.
Now-a-days everyone is hip to technology, and we’re pretty sure you’re no exception. At the click of a button we can have access to almost anything in the world and more importantly the Word of God.
As a youth I can remember learning and reciting the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13), the Psalm of David (Psalm 23) and even the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:1-17); all which were considered to be staple scriptures every Christian should live and abide by with their walk and growth in Christ.
Dancehall recording artist Shaggy released a song titled “Church Heathen.” Given the reoccurring scandals that include tax evasion to the sordid details of affairs there are thousands of reasons to avoid attending church.
Just yesterday I asked my husband how can he tell when he hears lies from the enemy (the devil himself). His answer made perfect sense and confirmed that it is a way he does speak to us.
I was about 9 nine years old and full of youthful exuberance and zeal; surrounded by neighbors who were like family, friends to play with within walking distance, and house that felt like the size of a football field.
I Don’t Fit In — This phrase has become common to a full-out, on-fire-for-Christ, picking-up-their-cross-and-leaving-the-rest-behind-believer, like myself!
I often wondered what’s in a fast. Starve myself and feel uncomfortable all for what? This act called fasting must be in The Ten Commandments, The Beatitudes perhaps, or even be a part of the Lords prayer; surprisingly, none of the aforementioned comment on fasting in any form.
Do we accept as truth the words spoken by King David in Psalm 139:14, that I am “fearfully and wonderfully made”? Or have these words become another meaningless cliché?
Perhaps God has forgotten I exist. Sure I want to be successful, but the truth is I’m feeling sad and like a failure. Everybody else is getting his or her blessing, but mine? It keeps passing me by. Will my time ever come?
On numerous occasions I’ve had encounters with someone who at a point and time desired to understand and learn more about Christianity, but decided that maybe, just maybe this religion (for lack of a better word) and the pursuit of a relationship with Jesus Christ was not worth following;
Well that was quick! It seems like just yesterday the world was preparing for”Y2K” and here we are at the start of a new decade. Typically, most of us are planning our new year and reflecting on the last.
It’s a Friday night, and you remember the days when you used to party like its 1999. Realizing that those days are now over because you’re saved and no longer partake in certain practices, you wonder what to do? Does life automatically become boring when you become a Christian? Of course not! There are many alternatives to enjoy yourself where you’re not compromising your faith or placing yourself in the position to do so. Need help? Here are some ideas below:
Jesus described the path of sin as “wide” and appealing to many who enter it (Matthew 7:13). Have you ever wondered how a drug addict came to make the choice to become one? Have you ever questioned why a Christian brother or sister would begin an extramarital affair?
There’s a myriad of reasons why people are happy, and a plethora of reasons why people are sad. I’ve come to the conclusion that being happy is predicated on the things that one has, and sadness comes from the lack there of.
What’s your earliest childhood memory? The earliest memory I have is when as a toddler between the ages of three and four years old, in a yellow and white dress with white ankle socks and black shoes with straps, there I was, in the center of the room, smiling and looking around, as all eyes were fixed on me.
