He Calls You By Name

When the devil tries to call you by your sin tell him who you really are. Your heavenly Father calls you lovely, equipped, strong, more than a conqueror, more precious than rubies!

Time Does Not Heal All Wounds

“There is a well-treasured saying that even Christians take comfort from during times of duress and tragedy, “Time heals all wounds.”  May I just tell you loudly – I OBJECT!! Time has no inherent healing power. Only God has healing power! I know women who are just as bitter and angry today as they were…

Stop telling yourself you can’t handle your situation or that you are not worth it; eventually you are going to start to believe it. Sometimes you just need to stop and take…

A Good Father

“A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society”  -Billy Graham Good dads make a world of difference! You are our everyday superheroes and we salute you this coming Father’s Day!  Love,  Rachel
