What’s Good About The Church?

By Susan Niswonger / last month

Recently, Steve was talking with a man who wanted to change his life.  He confessed that his attempt to change on his own wasn’t working; he could be good for a short time and then his desires would overwhelm his efforts.  Steve, of course, began to tell him that being filled with the Holy Spirit […]

If Only

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of months ago

Have you ever indulged in the mind game, “If Only?”  Most of us have at one time or another.  Usually we’ve experienced a bad situation and a little depression has set in.  Don’t be fooled, this game will not help!  Your “pity party” will continue until you stop the game or do something that fulfills […]
