When the Earth Shakes

Oklahoma is known for tornadoes. But, did you know that Oklahoma now leads the nation in the number of earthquakes? Most of the earthquakes we have are small.

Christ’s Prayer for Us

Do your kids argue and fight? I have three kids whom I love dearly. But, there are days when I feel like I will never survive. “He touched me!” “She didn’t ask if she could ride my bike!” “He came in my room without asking!” The bickering seems to never end. I often become weary… Continue reading Christ’s Prayer for Us
