Either Trust Me, or Trust What You See

Just when things were going well…I’d been rejoicing that the tide was finally turning in our family’s favor, as it appeared that we’d finally won the faith fight concerning Kennedi’s injury. And I was steadily preparing for the next journey of faith, getting ready to take my Leap of Faith. And then I got sucker … Continue reading Either Trust Me, or Trust What You See

Keep Turning the Page

Have you ever thought about what it takes to create a great story? Think about your favorite books and/or movies. What were the characters like? And what about the plot?

Then on Tuesday I received news that a close family member had been diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. It was a very emotional experience sharing my testimony … Continue reading How Do I Know God Will Heal Me?
