Experiencing Peace

10 Ways to Experience Peace Every Day You may read this headline and say to yourself something like, “My day is full, from sun up to sun down. I don’t have time for peace,” or “I’m managing my stress just fine.”  All of us have busy days and as women especially, we often take better […]

Attitude of Gratitude

Thursday night at a Bible Study in Indianapolis, prayer requests were taken before hand.  A friend, Sandy, had just arrived after being at a hospital with her husband, Ron, for most of the week.
