It’s only natural that we want to be happy. We look for happiness in relationships, careers, travel, houses, cars and even what we wear. Many times we find happiness, but it’s fleeting and temporary, so we continue our search. In my experience, when we seek God, and spend time with Him, we find something more […]

The first house I remember living in had no running water. We drew water from a well and used the bathroom in an outdoor toilet. The house was located a mile off the beaten path on a gravel road, 5 miles from the closest town in very rural Kentucky. It may sound poor, backward and […]
