Romans Online Bible Study Week One — The Problem We Face

None of us have lives that are perfectly put together. Thank Jesus that those are exactly the people Jesus goes straight toward! He wants you, He loves you, He lived for you, He died for you! Your prayer, wordy or not, simple or not, is heard by Him!

Paradise in a Garbage Dump

  Jesus wasn’t drawn to the people whose lives were perfectly put together. (Actually, those people never existed.) Jesus was drawn to people whose lives weren’t all together. People just like us.

52 Scriptures Every Kid Should Know

I sat there, feet dangling off the edge of my bed.  My ruffled pajama bottoms hung past my ankles and hovered over the top of my toes. Bedtime was my favorite time with my father.  I was a young girl, maybe 3 or 4, but he made it a practice to have my sister and
