I want to be a good friend…

In my prayer, I said to Jesus, “I want to be a good mother, I want to be a good role model, I want to be a good wife, and most of all, I want to be a good friend to you, Jesus.”  You have to be a friend to make a friend.  Does Jesus get included in all your…

Edify…

Wow! This is a word that is rarely used in our vocabulary today.  Do we even know what it means?  Well, it is the opposite of “tearing down”.  To edify means to “instruct or improve someone morally or intellectually” or simply, “building up”.

Just some apples….

I once heard this story and it is very powerful, but in my quiet time, Jesus shared a way I could expand it to share about Him more deeply so here it goes: A businessman was running with his co-worker through the airport on this Friday afternoon determined not to miss his trip back home after a long week away.  He knew…
