Asking Why

Small Steps and Broken Bones by Nancy Stevens

"How did you get started walking?" he asked. "I'm very weak, and I can't walk more than a few steps without getting worn out." I told him "I started walking a little at a time, I walked as many steps as I could each day. God intervened, and I returned home from the hospital. Although I was very weak, I quickly began trying to walk again, and God has helped me every day." The man reacted in surprise, because of my age. I was obviously much younger than he.

Man Praying

The Value of Weakness by Dr. Charles Stanley

None of us can escape the pressures of life. Most of us know what it feels like to be disappointed. We know the painfulness of embarrassment, the sting of rejection, and the sorrow of failure.

Family Home

Our Real Home by Sylvia Stewart

Holidays and anniversaries of weddings and births are enjoyed around the home hearth. Ideally, it is a place of warmth for heart and body, where we feel most satisfied and comforted. Unfortunately, the ideal doesn't happen under every roof. For many, "home" is a place of discomfort, to be avoided as long as possible; where meals are gulped because the atmosphere is so unpleasant. Most of us live in a home that is neither the one nor the other. It is neither a model nor a mockery, just mediocre.

Advent

Are Traditions Important to You by Barbara Lighthizer

The patterns we set for our daily lives are part of the process by which our children learn about godly family living. We may think that traditions are important only for the main events and holidays, such as Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and birthdays. However, we form a habit of doing something consistently in many areas of life.
