You can’t cancel sin. You may have done a whole bunch of good stuff, but if you’ve done one bad thing, that good stuff doesn’t cancel it out. And here’s the kicker – There will be NO SIN IN HEAVEN.

PLYMI Square

There is one thing in this world that may very well be the single most important thing we can give to our children.

It’s being awake.It can bring great relief. Except for the agony of it!

Pam Thumbnail Big

[display_podcast] I recently received a comment on a podcast I did entitled Ever Feel Like Giving Up?   In it I was speaking to the adults of stepfamilies and encouraging them not to give up though I understand it can be very hard at times. The comment I received was from a stepchild we’ll call JJ. This is part of what she wrote:“Step parents complaining about their step children is SO OFFENSIVE. So highly offensive. They FREELY CHOSE to have step children. The step children did not freely … [Read more...]
