Your faith is important; not only to you, but to those in your sphere of influence as well. Your faith and obedience may lead someone to Christ today. My favorite story in the Bible is about a small group of men carrying a paralytic friend on a mat to be healed by Jesus. When they […]

I love hanging out with people who make me laugh. Thankfully, I have three of four friends who occasionally make me laugh so hard that it brings tears to my eyes. I have several other friends who seem to bring at least smile or chuckle. I need to be with all of them more often. […]

All of us have a voice that no one else has. We have a unique role to play within our sphere of influence. You may influence hundreds or thousands. Or, you may influence ‘one’ and that ‘one’ may impact hundreds or thousands. To influence in a positive way, it’s important that we ask God to […]
