Sharing Faith with Family

When I became a new believer, I couldn't wait to share my faith with my family.  Unfortunately, in my zealous efforts, I made several mistakes and instead of winning family members to Christ, I pushed them away.  

I've learned a lot in 23 years ... and pleased to share that while I may have made a few mistakes along the way, I did do a few things right,  including loving and praying for my family to come to Christ, even if it wasn't through me.  Pictured here is my father who at 79 professed his faith in Jesus ...

Abiding in Christ

"Abide in Me and I in you, as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me." John 15:4

Together: Growing Appetites for God's Word

As a mom, I know there are many days when you operate in survival mode.  Once you get the kids off to school, there are errands to run, work to do, make time for exercise, plan ahead for dinner and then it's time to pick the kids up, help with homework, get to baseball practice, eat, sleep, and then it starts all over again the next day.

German sociologist Elisabeth Noelle-Neumann coined the phrase "the Spiral of Silence" after witnessing Hitler and his ilk intimidate citizens until they were afraid to speak out against the most horrible evils imaginable: the mass slaughter of human beings.

Noelle-Neumann said that a society falls into this fearful state, the Spiral of Silence, when it allows a tiny majority of the population to control the conversation. Most people are by nature reluctant to go against the tide of public opinion. Others are frightened, so the majority is silenced.

Have we succumbed to the Spiral of Silence? Have we remained silent while ...

Many Are Searching for Jesus

With an inquisitive 9 year old at home, I'm asked a lot of questions - from the mundane to the practical.  While I can't answer most of the questions readily, I know how I to get a quick answer to "Mom, is my tadpole lonely?" to the daily question, "What's the weather going to be today?"  . . . by going to the internet.

And, I'm in good company as I do.  The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) cites that a total of 2,095,006,005 people have access to the internet.

They also note that only an estimated ...
