Back to the Basics

It may be summertime but I keep thinking it's time to get back to the basics.  I'm not talking about reading, writing and arithmetic though . . . I'm referring to the basics of sharing about Christ.

For more than 50 years, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) has been using a simple tract to bring people to faith in Jesus Christ.  In four brief steps, people come to an understanding of how to find eternal life.

Life can become so mundane, but if you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and walk with Him, you're bound to come across a "God sighting" that brings a sparkle!  My seven-year-old daughter learned about how to spot a God sighting while attending VBS this summer.

Birthday CakeJudy. . .happy birthday!

You're going before me (just barely!) into the 70s in this "long obedience in the same direction" of which you are the epitome!

Competence through struggling for excellence.

In her little book, "Dream Big" Olivia says:
"Nobody can be exactly like me.  Even I have trouble doing it!"

Happy birthday, my friend.

Decading with you. . .Evelyn!

MapYou're probably aware by now that Search Engine Optimization (SEO) takes a great deal of intentionality. You plan, strategize and refine your website to be the best site possible.  And the goal is to have search engines understand, index your site and direct traffic to you.

A great way to assist this process? Make sure your site has an XML sitemap.

You may be thinking, "We've already got a site map and users are able to easily access it." That's great! But this is a different kind of map. What most people generally refer to as a ...
