Price to Pay

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of weeks ago

I will never forget a statement made by my College Economics Professor; “Your desire will determine the price you are willing to pay for any item.”  He then used the example of your thirst after a long hike in which a bottle of water is $5.  You pay the first $5 with no hesitation, you […]

Can I Find God In Your Blackberry?

By Susan Niswonger / 3 weeks ago

Dear Church Member: My life is a mess!   I’ve made all the wrong choices, followed the wrong path and I’m not sure where to turn next.  A co-worker told me maybe I should try God.  I noticed the sign in front of your beautiful church and decided to attend last Sunday.  I was really hoping […]

Potential Garbage or Garbage with Potential

By Susan Niswonger / last month

Potential Garbage or Garbage with Potential Do you have friends that are avid recyclers, garage sale junkies or maybe just pack rats?  I once read a story about a “pack rat.”  She had accumulated so much “stuff” that it took a bulldozer to move her treasures to allow the EMT to reach her dead body.  […]

The core of the Christian Life

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of months ago

I read this quote from J. Lee Grady, Charisma Magazine, this morning.  I hope it blesses you as it did me. “I believe the book of Psalms is in the middle of the Bible because praise must be at the core of the Christian life.” David was not reserved when He shut himself away with […]

Understand Their End

By Susan Niswonger / a few months ago

When I’m feeling just a little envious of others, a little prideful of my experience with God or a little sorry for myself, the 73rd Psalm usually comes to my mind.   I especially like to dwell on the 17th verse; “Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.”  I find that […]

Hashtag BTW

By Susan Niswonger / a few months ago

Hashtag BTW The 21st Century has become the Golden Age of Communication, hashtag #norealconnection.  We are more connected than at any other time in history, yet we have less personal contact with friends and relatives than we had a century ago.  By pushing #3 on my cell phone, I am immediately connected with my husband […]

Life’s Danger Zone

By Susan Niswonger / a few months ago

I have been on a life-changing, healthy eating plan since January.  Every month I set a mini-goal of weight loss and achieving successful lifestyle changes.  Most months I achieved my lifestyle changes but fell short of my weight loss goals.  Although Steve said my weight loss goals were too high, I felt sure that one […]

When Do I Get Mine?

By Susan Niswonger / a few months ago

When Do I Get Mine? “I am so tired”, I cried during my morning devotions.  “I can’t take another whiner”, I whined.  “Where’s mine?”  “When do I ever get some?”  My kids won’t listen to me, the neighbor didn’t wave, our congregation is getting smaller and even the dog is sick. It sounds so childish […]

The Alarm Clock Just Buzzed

By Susan Niswonger / 6 months ago

The Alarm Clock Just Buzzed Sleeping peacefully, snuggled under a cozy quilt, I was suddenly awakened by the shrill sound of an alarm clock.  I am known in the family as an “early bird.”  My eyes pop open at first light and I hit the floor running.  I am the one who walks into the […]

Terms and Conditions

By Susan Niswonger / 6 months ago

Terms & Conditions In the last few years, the Internet has become an integral part of our everyday lives.  We use it to communicate with loved ones, share pictures and daily activities on social networks, learn what is happening in every country of the world, purchase new toys and sell the old ones.  If you […]
