Thankful for God’s Goodness

Thanksgiving is in two weeks. I love hearing all the things that people are thankful for in their lives. It is one of my favorite holidays.

This morning, I am thinking about how Christians have to be good people. We have to be nice, even when others are not nice to us... I have never understood why some people are so mean.

What Can Anyone Do To Me, When God Is With Me?

I have been reading the bible for a few years now, and recently I have been reading it everyday. I considered myself a Christian my whole life, but realized over the past four years, that I have so much to learn. Daniel had so much faith, he survived the lion's den and his friends survived… Continue reading What Can Anyone Do To Me, When God Is With Me?
