My Daughter

Posted by Lori Tate on

My older daughter was born on September 24, 1981—exactly the day she was due. She was always athletic and set a school track record that stands to this day. She played college softball and earned two master's degrees. She lives in New England and is a social worker at a high school for...

A Stewardship

Posted by Bob Fox on

A stewardship was the challenge of making something good to eat out of a pile of stuff that was second best When I was a boy I thought a steward was a cook! It was logical in my mind since the word was obviously formed from stew. Stewards could somehow combine various leftovers so that...

The way God works amazes me. I don’t know why it does, but I’m glad He chooses to show Himself through big and small ways, wonderful and hard things. I just finished studying Hosea as part of the fall women’s bible study and I felt challenged to silence by Yahweh during that...

Like many of you, I worked my way through the WE devotional. A few days were missed and a bunch of questions were not answered. That is fairly typical of me. While studying the Bible isn’t new, it sometimes feels a little unnatural, so it isn’t a set routine. An opportunity to go...

Sow Bountifully Reap Bountifully

Posted by Jerry Mosher on

I retired about five years ago and needed something that would get me out of the house. Golf didn’t work because the cost was too high in the winter. I found an acceptable activity in going to garage sales. It was fun to interact with strangers and leave them happier when I left, even if I...
