Serving the church is rewarding and fulfilling, and necessary. Sometimes, it can be tiring. With the work to be done and the need for workers, is it right to take a break?
For many of us, the need to be in control, to be stressed, feels normal and healthy, even though there is scientific evidence to the contrary.
Making decisions shouldn't be so hard. Why do I spend so much time worrying about day to day choices, trying to handle them on my own? Why do I only pray as a last resort or in an impossible situation?
Jealousy, that nasty emotion, begins almost as soon as we are old enough to notice pretty things. Lucy has a doll that is prettier than mine. I wish I had that one. Jealousy causes us to feel underprivileged. It alienates us from one another and distances us from God.

Shaping the Next Generation
Parents are responsible for shaping the lives of their children. Not only parents, but all adults serve as examples that are followed, whether for good or bad.

Define the Love of God
How does Godís love feel? How does the Creator, eternal God, love? We define love in the context of our personal experience in this earthly life. But, we often have flawed experience.
