Get Closer To Jesus TODAY!

    What if I told you that you could get closer to Jesus today–in one moment even, and in that singular moment massive changes in your life could occur. Would you believe me? Would you label it as ‘hype.’ Would it make your heart beat faster because this is what you have been longing for?      We have all heard it said that change doesn’t happen overnight.

Since decisions happen in an instant,… 

How To Have True Intimacy In Your Marriage

  Do you desire to have true intimacy in your marriage? Do you ever feel disconnected from your husband? I know I have on many occasions—sometimes even for months at a time.

If the test comes back positive the ground must be cleaned up before any construction can begin. Cleaning up toxic soil is costly and time-consuming.

He does not have the time or money to clean the land.                In spiritual construction, we do not have the luxury of cutting our losses. We… 

Forgive Like Christ

Being like Christ in every area of my life is my greatest goal. And let me tell you, it is the most challenging goal I have ever set for myself. It requires a death to self…daily…constantly.
