Why Jesus Christ Should Be The Man Of Your Household

In Faith

Father’s Day can be an emotional day for single moms. It may be a day you are reminded you are the only parent and that the biological father isn’t in the picture. Father’s Day may even cause a few moments of pain when you see your married friends celebrating their husbands on Father’s Day and maybe you secretly wish that you didn’t have to do it alone. Although these feelings are valid, I propose you don’t need to stay in this place when you shift your thinking to put Christ as the head of your household. Instead of celebrating yourself…

Lessons from the Flood: What Noah Can Teach Us About Obedience

In Faith

Genesis 7 is a great chapter about the Lord’s timing, instruction, and our obedience. It starts out by saying, “When everything was ready.” (Genesis 7:1). To provide some context to that statement, I want to go back to Genesis 6 for a moment.

What if you are stressed, worried, facing financial struggles, or things just don’t seem to be working out?
