What Does the Bible Say About Judging?

I recently read an article about the topic of judgment. It seems as though many people misunderstand what the Bible teaches on this topic. Matthew 7:1 explicitly denounces judgment, as do many other verses throughout the Bible. Suffice to say that these two verses, as examples, give us plenty of reason to constitute judgment-free parameters […]

Cursing and The Power of Our Words

“For the word of God is alive and powerful.  It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow.  It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” Hebrews 4:12 How true it is that what is in your heart comes through in your words and tone.  When you are […]

When You Feel Like a Bad Mom

We all have those days as moms where we totally lose control, forget an appointment, pass-over the much-needed shower and go to the store anyway, and even hide under the covers with the onset of another sibling tirade.
