LESSONS I LEARNED PART 2
by Teresa Moyer MY RETURN TRIP HOME The assist service at the Charlotte airport was top notch. I was able to get a wheelchair outside before entering the airport. He asked to see my boarding pass and took me to security. I lit up again. By then, I wondered what in the world was in… Continue reading LESSONS I LEARNED PART 2

Interview With Kathi Macias
Questions by Rita Prochazka Kathi can you share some of your testimony with us?

The Urging of the Spirit
by Joyce Cordell Do you ever have a time when it seems the Lord urges you to do something specific? I went through such a time. Years ago, I sensed that He placed the word "write" in my mind. Oh, I had written many things - journals, skits, devotions, Bible studies, even a short story… Continue reading The Urging of the Spirit
The Christmas Ornaments from Christmas Past
I realized, in that moment, the day my ex-husband left me was not the worst day of my life, as I had thought for the past several decades. It was the best day of my life. All those years, I had blamed myself for the failed marriage. Now I knew Tim never would have been faithful to me.

Privileged, in so many ways. Why was I so blessed? I could have been born in… Continue reading Come Get a Hug!
Lisa’s Story Part II

The next thing I remember is Jason racing into the bedroom and finding me on the floor. He knelt on the floor, gathered me in his arms, and reached for the phone to call 911. He just kept saying, "Don't leave me. Please don't leave me!" I could see the terror in his tear-filled eyes as he repeated it over and over.
