Finding Joy and Overcoming Doubt

As I considered these subjects coming up on "Grace to You®" in July, a close friend immediately came to mind.  She recently received some devastating news that has turned her world upside down.  And unfortunately, because of that news, she's now questioning God's Word and promises.

4)      The aquarium business has tanked

5)      The ...
