Four Ways to Change in 2014

What is it about a new year that makes us all want to call for a massive
“do-over”? We collectively vow to shed a few pounds, save a few

For the Next Seven Days, Don’t Hit Snooze

It’s happened more times than I can count on one hand. My morning alarm clock starts buzzing, and I reach over to click the snooze button. I look at the time and groan . . . way too early!

Well, later never comes, and I miss my Bible time again. Does that routine sound familiar to anyone?

Five Ways to Seek the Lord Today

In spite of our conditioning toward instant gratification, most of the best things in life still take a lot of time.

The Harvest Principle

What you plant into your life this year is what you will reap from your life this year. What you invest the most in is where you will see the most growth. What you invest a little in will produce just a little bit of fruit. No exceptions.
