Impatience Will Always Birth An Ishmael

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of years ago

Gr’ma, Gr’ma, Gr’ma, GR’MA!!!! Caleb’s impatience was coming through.  I had promised him that we would go downstairs and play after I put Baby Nathan down for his morning nap.  Caleb has the patience of a 3 year old and although he may understand the word “later,” later occurs to him much sooner than it […]

It’s The Power Behind The Story!!!

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of years ago

The Ark

By Steven Lewis / a couple of years ago

When the flood came and tore through the Earth raking it clean of all life except the 8 that were on board was and is still a increasingly important thing.  We have people today who want to preach the message of salvation to others through mental accenting and deceit of tradition taught by men. The […]

God Preached to Me Through a Block of Wood!

By Don Doran / a couple of years ago

God Preached to Me Through a Block of Wood! In November of 1996, my wife and I took a short vacation to a little town located on the Oregon Coast called Goldbeach. One afternoon we drove around the area. We were playing tourist, visiting shops and sightseeing. During our drive I saw a sign advertising […]

By Don Doran / a couple of years ago

God Does Not Negotiate

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of years ago

As a child I frequently heard the words, “BECAUSE I SAID SO!”  At that point I understood that arguing was futile and I had better get with the program.  When was the last time you heard a parent speak those words and mean it? We hold open the refrigerator door for 15 minutes while our […]
