The Struggle To Forgive

The Struggle To Forgive – by Mallory Dagher

Sweet friends, I think we all have had our fair share of hurting, pain-ridden hearts. We all have experienced situations that just don’t seem very fair at all. We have all faced circumstances where we ask ourselves, “Why are people just so mean?” or “What did I do to hurt them enough to do this to me?”  I can tell you from my own experience, loving people who hurt you is one of the hardest callings that God places on our lives. I find those words coming from my mouth…

Grace Upon Grace

The Imperative of Grace Upon Grace – by Bella Easterbrook

May 1, 2022|In Christian Living|11 MinutesAs a Christian, I hear a lot of talk about grace. We sing about it, we preach about it. It’s central to our faith. Yet, what does it really mean? What does it mean for our lives? The grace of God is undeserved favour. His mercy and blessings given to us even though we don’t deserve it. We often think of this grace when it comes to initial salvation. We were sinful and under God’spunishment; yet when we put our faith in Jesus, God gave…

A Heart for the Home – by Dani James

Inspired by Beautiful Things I am inspired by beautiful things… I love design, fashion, nature, art, beauty – it’s a big part of who I am. When I first became a Christian, I thought that meant I was shallow and that it was unimportant in God’s kingdom, but God has shown me that beauty comes from Him, it is a part of Him, and as His child, this is part of what I have inherited from Him – a love for the beautiful. God didn’t just do functional – God creates beautifully. Looking at the natural…

January 18, 2022|In Christian Living|By Guest AuthorOh sweet friend, my heart is terribly longing for home. Living so far away from home is sometimes more than this heart of mine can handle. When life gets difficult, and hard decisions have to be made, or unwanted correction takes place, all I want to do is to be nestled away in my comfortable home surrounded by the ones who I know will never leave my side. I remember my first time being sick at college in Indiana. Oh, how I longed for my home!…
