MOUND VISIT It’s great that we serve a God who is willing to help us in our time of need. But if we want to grow in our love for Him, we need to “seek” His face… Be with Him in prayer, worship, solitude and in reading His Word. We are more complete in all […]

MOUND VISIT You don’t have to look very far to see someone who is hurting. Even though the suffering is not permanent, it certainly feels that way at the time. God has not and will not abandon us in our emotional or physical pain. “You don’t really know Jesus is all you need until Jesus […]

This is a day to be thankful for the bravery and brilliance of the farmers, shopkeepers, tradesmen and laborers who stored their tools, hung their shop keys and fought for freedom.

Mound Visit The greatest leadership principle is found, of course, in the Book of Wisdom—the Bible. Your parents probably taught this principle to you or you may have learned it in Kindergarten or Sunday School.
