Jana Thumbnail Big 2

[display_podcast] From Jana Elizabeth Doughty:I just ate a macaroon that I thought had vanilla filling, but it was lemon. #firstworldproblems Hand wash only.  #firstworldproblems My customized MacBook Pro hasn’t shipped yet.  #firstworldproblemsThis hashtag is hilarious.  It’s witty.  It’s clever.  It’s true.  These are silly things.  Miniscule surface things that in the grand scheme don’t matter.  But they matter to us.  They’re problems.  Big or small.  And they accumulate quickly. … [Read more...]

TTC-thumbnail-v2

[display_podcast] From Dana Avant, Vice-President of Wisdom Matrix: We are continuing to look at how the woman described in Proverbs 31 can be used as an example for our own lives in the 21st century.

When I think of thanksgiving in the Bible, my S … [Read more...]
