For Kids: Jesus Knows Some people might think, Jesus, it’s easy for You up there. You’re in Heaven. You just don’t know how hard it is down here. But those people would be wrong. The Bible says He “is able to understand” (Hebrews 4:15 ICB). Jesus knows. He knows because He Himself left Heaven and

See What God Has Done! Do You See It?

Psalm 31:24 NIV

Prayers for Teachers

  Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD. — Psalm 31:24 NIV Precious Lord, You are faithful and true, and You never change. It feels as if the world of education changes all the time — new ideas, new laws, new requirements. In a shifting world remind me that my

Relinquishing Control

When you can’t sleep, don’t count sheep — read Scripture. Distinguish between God’s voice and the voice of fear. Worry takes a look at catastrophes and groans, “It’s all coming unraveled.” God says, Every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good. — Romans 8:28 MSG Worry claims, “The world

Christyn, Rebecca’s mom, talks about her daughter’s health complications with the ease of a surgeon.
