A definitive purpose

So much of my drive in life comes from having some sort of purpose. We all long for a fulfilling role to play in the stage of life. I love my role as mother and always have, however I feel an absence of a role I used to play. Feeling a bit knocked out of […]

Hope

What gives us hope in our lives? A promise for an easier life? A better life? A close relationship? A great opportunity? I have to remind myself that Christ Jesus is the greatest hope I can have, to be joyful and certain of my salvation, to cling to His promises, and to stake my life […]
