I never imagined having to deal with grief during the holidays. It was never in my plan to deal with grief at all. No one plans it.

I have recently given a lot of thought to marriage longevity. On the 19th of this month (October), my husband Eric & I celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary. It was a bittersweet day as so much of our lives have changed in those years. Do me a favor and think back to the year leading up to your wedding day and the year following.

  You make all the plans and prepare for all the events then life does not go as you expected. If you would allow me, I would like to step away from breaking down Titus for just today, Over the past almost 2 years I have learned on a very personal level, that we have no real control of our lives.

The time has come to discuss how Paul wanted to deal with heresy in the body of believers. He uses pretty strong words like Liars, Evil Beasts, and gluttons.  So again, we find Paul not mincing words much like in the previous verses. What else does he point out and how does he want it handled? There is a lot to dig into here and we will just scratch the surface, let’s get started. Read with Me Let’s take a... Read more

We last discussed an overview of the Book of Titus. Now it’s time to get down to the nitty-gritty! Understand, for some people this will be shocking, for others you may have known these things but have not applied them. Then there will be those that it will be the first time they have even heard about these things. Either way, it will give us an understanding of what God expects of our Pastors. Actually, all of us! So, let’s... Read more

Well, is the book of Titus important to everyday life? The truth is that the Bible is relevant to our daily lives in its entirety. However, why should we give importance to a short book of only three chapters in the New Testament, namely the book of Titus? What makes it significant, and how can we apply it to our everyday lives? Who should be incorporating its teachings into their lives? Over the next few weeks, we will take a... Read more
