Forbidden Fruit

I remember when my husband first confessed to me that he had an attraction to another woman. I responded, “Temptation is not a problem.

When God is Silent

When God is Silent Have you ever felt like God had gone silent? Perhaps He seemed so active in your life for a period, and then suddenly He was gone. That’s where I am. I find myself in a dry and barren land where it seems as if God has abandoned me. He has made… Continue reading When God is Silent
