  • Shoes That Will Work In Every Season

  • SHOES THAT WILL WORK IN EVERY SEASON -  

    Life is a journey, isn’t it?

    It’s a journey of ups and downs … of highways and back roads … of valleys and mountaintops … of the wilderness and of magnificent views.

    Life can be experienced by running or walking … by meandering or by rushing … by skipping or plodding … and by dragging one’s feet or walking with a spring in one’s step.

    This devotional was written by Kelly McFadden 

     

    Do to others as you would have them do to you.—Luke 6:31

     

    An old classmate approached me at our high school reunion with the dreaded question, “Do you remember me?” He looked familiar, but he wasn’t one of my close friends in high school. “Do you remember what you did?” he then asked. Gulp. I put my brai...

    This devotional was written by Kelly McFadden

My daughter was finishing her third, and perhaps most trying, semester at the University of Lincoln and dealing with sleep deprivation and time management challenges. To add to her stress, this was her first year living both out of our house and out of the dorms.

  • When You Walk Through a Valley

    By Elizabeth Laing Thompson

    Who doesn’t love Psalm 23? For three verses it’s all smiles and peace, all dancing through flowers.

     

    The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

       He makes me lie down in green pastures,

    He leads me beside quiet waters, 

       He restores my soul. 

    He guides me in paths of righteousness….

     

    We read this and we think, "Gre...
