What Does Grace Remind Me Daily?

Can I let you in on a secret?  I hesitate to wear my own shirts. Why?  Because I think if I am wearing this I have to be perfect.  I have to be on my best behavior.  I do not do "best" behavior well.  I try to drive the speed limit and let other cars in front of me. I try to exercise every day. I try to not give in to every chocolate craving I have. I try most times to wait until I can have a one on one discussion with a child that has done wrong. But...

It needs to refer...

Why my devotion is NOT the first thing I do in the morning

I know to start off the day with God is very important. For years that was not what I was doing. I may have managed a chapter here or there, but nothing planned & nothing organized.   Then I found the daily Bible and gave it a go. I think I may have made it to January 20th or so before  I was skipping days and popping in and out before just giving up.  The next year I tried again.  I made it further and kept popping in and out.  The next year YES!  I made it.   Well, there were makeup days...

Book Review Hope in the Dark Craig Groeschel

For me to really love a book I have to laugh several times, It needs to be written for everyone, not just the scholarly (most days I am reading either early in the morning or before bed neither a good time to take on anything too deep) It needs to give action points or suggestions. It needs to refer to scripture frequently It needs to be based on scripture. What I like/love He is totally honest in his introduction when he give you a heads up that this book will NOT be like his others. In his other books he...
