We cannot get through life without conversations. To converse is human. We are relational beings, and we must have interaction with others. However, not all conversations are the same.

Things My Momma Taught Me

Many of the things my mother said to me as a child were not just for childhood. Her advice was often godly advice that is beneficial at any age. The world would be a better place if we all heeded the godly advice passed down from our mothers. Two wrongs don’t make a right. “Do […]

Honor Everyone

“Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. Honor everyone.” (1 Peter 2:16-17) One of the most disturbing recent trends in our culture is a total lack of respect for others. Sometimes, this comes from a place of selfishness.
