70th Anniversary of Auschwitz Liberation

An important day in history Today marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz - Birkenau Concentration Camp in Poland.  70 years isn't that long ago, is it?  There will be a lot of news around this event over the next few days.  If you're a history buff like me, check out sites like the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. So what does all of this have to do with LifeWay or this blog you ask?  I'm so glad you did!  It gives me a … [Read more...]

Esther by Angela Hunt

Intriguing biblical era Novel I love, love biblical era fiction.  Whether it's a story based off of an account from scripture or one that's based during the times of the Bible, I gobble them up.  That's why I was so excited to see that Angela Hunt was releasing Esther.

You Can Adopt Without Debt by Julie Gumm

Practical and Biblical Adoption Advice I love hearing adoption stories.  There are few other testimonies where you can really see how the sovereignty of God orchestrates peoples lives to bring about a family that he designed.  I was excited to hear that a coworker and his wife just received the news that they will be bringing a child home from South Korea this year (yay Baby Watson!)!  Another example of how two people are following the Lord to the child that is meant to be theirs. Adoption … [Read more...]
