You can choose to live in a world where you’re terrified of darkness or you can live in a world where your God terrifies the darkness.  I chose years ago to accept Jesus into my life, but before that, the enemy tried to convince me I was a good person, almost like God should have […]

“LET ME GO!” Logan jerked his thin 5-year-old arm away from his brother. “Logan, I’m trying to help you. If you step backwards, you’re going to fall down the…” “Waaaa!” Logan’s wail could be heard from inside the house. I rushed out the front door and onto the porch. “What happened?” I yelled at Rice […]
