It's in the Love, Not the Blood: Leap of Faith

I took the road less traveled by, and that has made all the difference--- Robert Frost 

It has never been a secret that my husband and I adopted our children from foster care.  There have been moments when talking about adoption the look of “oh, you adopted one of THOSE kids” has crossed someone’s face.  If you could lend me a few moments of your time, I would like to dispel a few myths about children adopted from foster care.

Jarrod Jacobs: God Sees What Man Does Not See

When Samuel was sent by God to anoint one of Jesse’s sons as the next king, he was sure that he had found the new king when he saw Eliab (I Sam. 16:6). “But the LORD said to Samuel, ‘Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him.

Some deny that the Bible is the truth (Jn. 17:17). Others deny that it is inspired (II Tim. 3:16-17). Such people discourage knowing the Bible among those who are influenced by them. There are also people who claim to believe in the truth of God’s word and yet refuse to obey what His word says.

Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain

This week, I was looking through the last four months of Better Homes & Gardens magazines before recycling them. I noticed quite a bit of health, food and finance information in each. Some of the interesting take-away information is listed below. 


•People who spend a minimum of two hours outdoors every week are in better shape – physically and mentally – than those who don’t.
