Fighting Back

Fighting Back I was diagnosed with chronic depression and PTSD years ago. While they tried every antidepressant they could, they never actually helped with the depression, they just numbed me. I walked around like a zombie, not feeling much of anything. I didn’t feel joy, love, hate, or any of those emotions. I guess the […]

Daily Struggles and I am Blessed

February 18, 2018 – Daily Struggles I used to think that Christians were perfect people. All the ones I met seemed so happy, so sure of themselves, for the most part.

The Tongue

June 5, 2016 Pastor Salem did a sermon today on the tongue, how it can be used to destroy a person, how it can be used to uplift a person, and more importantly how it should be used to edify and glorify and share Jesus. It got me thinking back to younger days, before I […]

Being a True Christian

Author: Lori Carter Many arguments continue about the validity of the bible. I have even read opinions that state if you don’t accept the bible as being “wholly God’s word” you cannot classify yourself as a Christian. I don’t agree with this statement. The bible holds many writings that have been passed down since the […]
