As we reflect on the life and sacrifice of our Lord and celebrate His resurrection and victory over death, let us not overlook the great love and sacrifice of the Father.

The Faith of a Child!

We need the faith of a child… if we want to know God’s heart. This young boy sums up our experience with God as we pressed deeper into His grace after the loss of our daughter. God is always faithful, and He always desires for us to draw closer to Him through childlike faith. In Read More …
