Faith-Filled Moms: God’s Provision and Protection During My Cancer Fight – by Jewel Taylor

As I stood in front of the door of our new living quarters, I had Jamison on my hip, while holding Julian’s hand.

A Different Look at Death

I’m interrupting our regularly scheduled series of Faith-Filled Moms because my friend Shari passed away from cancer less than twenty-four hours after my first guest blog about Faith-Filled Moms and Fighting Cancer was posted.  My friend had valiantly fought her sickness for years.

I was living with a crushed spirit. Last week I talked about a spirit of heaviness and sadness that I was experiencing after … Continue reading When Life Gets Too Heavy

Am I Focused on My Child’s Potential or Purpose?

The path to purpose starts with the unique talents, gifts, abilities, and strengths that God has given us in different areas. But how do we know what we are supposed to do with them? How do we manage the potential that comes from the way we were created?
