5 Assurances To Help You Stop Doubting Your Faith

I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume, because you’re reading this, you’ve doubted your faith. Maybe not recently or maybe right now! Am I right? Well, I know I have personally had doubts in the past. They were more frequent in my younger “angry” years (ahem, teenagehood) but occasionally popped up once I was a much more committed believer.

Jesus Calling: My First Bible Storybook {by Sarah Young}

Jesus Calling: My First Bible Storybook I have yet to read the original Jesus Calling by Sarah Young, a Christian bestseller for many years now. However, I now own two other books built off of the original — one with devotions for older kids or a family and this latest one I’ve received.

It’s a great addition to my quiet time with God — reading over and meditating on certain lyrics that praise Him or give me hope or strength. So many...

This is a great (FREE!) collection of Bible study outlines in case you're ever in a pickle and need a "last minute" idea!

Should We Be So Random in Our Acts of Kindness? {A Bible Study Outline}

Though “random acts of kindness” was certainly a phrase (and even book titles) in the past, social media has transformed this into a popular trend across the globe. Pinterest is overflowing with “random” ideas while Facebook, Twitter and Instagram also share boasts of individuals’ acts of kindness. Personally, I notice it more around Christmastime, but the trend is not completely attached to the holiday season. Being kind to one another is a wonderful thing to focus on, and there’s certainly nothing...
