My Latest article on Bible Basics
At times, expressing to another person the truth about how God has transformed your life can be exceedingly difficult. I’ve just read a great book: Tactics, a Game Plan for Discussing your Christian Convictions, by Gregory Koukl, that is helping me to talk about my beliefs with confidence, and share my faith with graciousness.
From my heart to yours
I will be attending my high school reunion this weekend. Somehow, that makes me more nervous than singing a solo or putting an essay online for the world to critique. Never quite get over that teenage angst, I guess.
Serving our sweet Savior,
