I’ve so enjoyed reading my Aunt Debbie’s blog, “A Well Watered Garden.”  This post features my grandpa and his garden.  He inspired her to become a Master Gardener.   Peter Slobodian was a farmer at heart, and even when he brought his family from Argentina to the United States in 1957 answering the Lord’s call on his life to preach the gospel, he never lost his desire to grow and cultivate a garden. I remember many trips to see...

Music is a personal thing.  It is such an influential and integral part of our spiritual walk.  I know there are many who won’t want to hear this point of view, but my testimony is a common one among believers, I think.  I do not presume to know what motivates my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ to listen to their  favorite music.  I do not know the thoughts or intents of the heart the way God does.  In my own life, though, I have taken...

Thank you to everyone who commented and sent me notes and messages on my last article, “A Pro-Vaccine Point of View.”  I would like to address the issues that were raised from those comments in an effort to give an answer to all aspects of this controversial topic, especially since I know that some do not read all of the comments nor do they...
