The Righteous Way

By Don Doran / last year

Good morning! What a great day to have the praises of the Lord in our mouths. Have you noticed that the less we as a society regard the importance and value of the Word of God the easier it has become to compromise on the core values we once held dear. Truth, honesty, integrity, good […]

Open My Understanding

Good Morning! Isn’t it great to be a Child of God?

KJV There is a difference between […]

Why Percentages of Fruit?

By Don Doran / last year

Appetite for Righteousness

I left home a week after my high school graduation to evangelize. My first venture for an extended time away. The first home I was in the pastor’s wife made a wonderful meal and one of the vegetables was squash. I did not like squash but remembered my father’s admonition, “If they cook it, you […]

Pressure Cooker Moments!

By Don Doran / last year

Have you ever had one of those “pressure cooker moments.”  What do you do when the pressure is on? What is your reaction or course of action? Do you change who you are? Do you buckle under the pressure? “Many are my persecutors and mine enemies; yet do I not decline from thy testimonies. I beheld […]
