Want peace with God? Yourself? Everyone else including your neighbors, in-laws, co-workers, folks on the freeway and people in the drive-thru? Being at peace with others is a high priority with God. He says so in scripture. His goal is for you to become a peace "maker" in order to keep the air clear unlike a peace "keeper" who wants to avoid confrontation but ends up resentful. We discuss how to stay in peace to keep a bad situation from getting worse while bringing peace to others. (Romans 12:18).

Are you feeling stressed due to lack of balance in your life? Who doesn't feel pressure from family, over-commitments, work, finances, health, or lack of fun? It's been said that balance is something we are to strive for. But how? It starts WHEN we get our priorities in order. Scripture even says that God is a God of order so prioritizing is obviously the place to start. We look in the Word and discuss how.

Hello, Friend! Hello, Tuesday! We just want you to know that God is the best parent ever and a loving Father. He's not mad at you and He loves you BUT He does show His discipline towards our mistakes and rebellion.

As tough as tough love is to give, it causes "capable" people to grow from "their" choices. The enabling stops and God can reveal the life lessons He can teach you both through "their" decisions. So resist the temptation to play God. Trust those humans to God with your support, love, and compassion and watch the spiritual growth. Here's what Jeremiah 29:11 has to say for all of us: "For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. Plans for good and not disaster, to give you a future and a hope."
