Mound Visits, 7/6/17

Many times I carry anxiety, stress, worries and fears that rob me of peace and productivity. I know better. I’ve heard many sermons on these topics and I’ve read many quotes and even Bible verses telling me how not to do this. I’ve heard people who “have it all together” tell me that worry is […]

If we follow the path of least resistance, we will become more like our evolving world. It will be easy to say, “what I do is wrong, but I’m not as bad as ‘that’ person.” Or, “why not, everyone else does it.” But, we do not have to live our lives giving in to what […]

Amidst the fireworks, parades, hot dogs and potato salad, may we never forget the farmers, shop owners, liberated slaves and plantation owners who left their homes and families to stand up against the most powerful nation in the world…to become “one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.” And, may we spend time […]

Social media has created a “bully pulpit” for anyone with a strong opinion about politicians, athletes, coaches and other public figures.

If we need to change our life or change something in our lives, first we need to change our hearts. King David knew this quite well when he offered this prayer to God: “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:10) Keith Madison SCORE International

When we go through challenges, trials or need to make major decisions, it’s good to ask a friend to pray for us. Jesus said, “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18:20) “A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” (Ecclesiastes 4:12) Keith Madison SCORE […]

I believe God loves to give gifts to us; Gifts such as forgiveness, grace, wisdom, answered prayers and even eternal life. I also believe He smiles, perhaps even laughs, when He gives gifts and surprises to us…much like we do when we give gifts and surprises to our own children on Christmas morning. Only He […]
