“And Your Household”

“And Your Household”

It was an hour before my flight was to take off for Phoenix, my sister-in-Christ and I were praying before she saw me off through the security checkpoint at the airport. I hadn’t slept in over 24 hours and neither had my phone as texts and phone calls flooded my time for two days straight. […]

When Have You Gone Too Far?

When Have You Gone Too Far?

Love, trust, betrayal. There’s an ongoing argument in my family. I’m going deep here, and I very much desire reader input. Here’s the question up for debate: if a person fits the parameters of Luke 9:62 and/or Hebrews 10:26, are they consigned to hell with no hope of reconciliation with God? Have they gone too […]

Are You Watching The Signs?

Redemption

Lillian here. I’m praying all is well in your world. As I was trying to come up with a topic for this month’s post, I was also working on promos for my upcoming release, REDEMPTION.  I wasn’t having much luck when it came to me. Talk about redemption—not the book but the act itself. Dictionary.com […]

The City Slicker And The Farm

The City Slicker And The Farm

There’s a verse in the Bible that has always bothered me. Philippians 2:12 says: “Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed-not only in my presence but now much more in my absence-continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling.”
