“There’s a Rock in My Sock!” by Lynn Mosher

Ever get a pebble in your shoe or your sock and think, Now, where did that come from? I’m a sock person.

encouragement for when your hope is fiercely shaken

“Encouragement for When Your Hope has been Fiercely Shaken” by Ifeoma Samuel

After a long week of torturous waiting for test results to swing in my favour, it didn’t! I was tired of fighting. I was done filling the holes with hope. This war is waged against my peace and this time I was overwhelmed. Those tormenting “maybes” and “if-onlys” competed for my heart space. -Maybe I …

“Wisdom for Moms: Preparing Your Introverted Child” by Laura L. Zimmerman

WISDOM FOR MOMS By nature, I’m an extrovert. Even as small child, I never had a problem walking into a classroom and making friends. Summer camp? Piece of cake. I promptly chose my bed for the week and said goodbye to my parents before they could even get a look around. Even as a college …

“Put it on Mute” by Toni Samuels

When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. – Revelation 8:1 We live in a noisy age. Think about the variety of sounds blaring from the devices in our vehicles, homes and offices. Most of us are so uncomfortable with quiet that the moment we jump …
