You are well known to God, whether you know Him or not.

In my quiet time with the Lord this morning I read from my one year Bible, (given to me by my best friend Carol Dozler, on Christmas 1998). It has blessed and enriched my life for twenty one years. Thank you Carol,...

In the Gospel of Matthew 4:4 Jesus says, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”

The word of God sets us free. Plain and simple. If we read it, believe it and live it that is.
