Small Things, Big Love

Have you recently dug through your couch looking for loose change, hoping to find enough to tip the pizza guy? There might be more there than you think. According to a report on MSNBC, more than $15 billion in loose change is currently stranded underneath American cushions, stuck in sock [...]

The Power of One

We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 1:2-3) “I think I am going to try a different [...]
