It can’t be denied that the chart-topping campfire praise chorus of the 1980’s was Kum By Yah, My Lord. And surely taking second place on the same song chart was the well-known hit, which was based solely on Scripture, Seek Ye First. Thirty years ago, if any church youth group in America gathered around […]
This blogspot was launched in January of 2015, and since its inception, I have never re-published a post … until now. “A Mountaintop of Fun for Your Teenaged Child” came out last May. It encouraged parents to consider the spiritual value of a Christian camp experience for their teenaged students. I am re-posting this […]
What is the key to falling asleep quickly at night? We’ve heard all kinds of tricks; haven’t we?
Refrain from using your cell phone, tablet, and laptop within an hour of wanting to fall asleep.
Lower the room’s thermostat to 65 degrees.
Don’t watch television while lying in bed.
And my all-time favorite has to be … […]
A couple of weeks ago, I was bummed out. I discovered that there had been a problem with the Enough Grace Ministries blog for, oh, about six months. I was disappointed. It appeared that about half of our blog’s subscribers hadn’t been getting notifications when new posts were published.

According to batchgeo.com, there are over 2000 Celebrate Recovery (CR) groups in America. I have never had any exposure to any of them, except for the CR ministry of Tennessee Valley Community Church in my hometown of Paris, Tennessee. I don’t know if all CR groups are ministering in the same way, but I […]
When I was a little girl, my parents went to great measures to discover and cultivate any talent that I might have. We tried everything. Piano. Softball. Soccer. Ballet. Skateboarding. Singing. My chubby frame and my lack of coordination led them to pursue some non-traditional pastimes for me. One such talent quest was “Speech.” […]

Ranting and raving. Fussing and fuming. Call it what you want. But here I go again. I cannot sit idly and silently while every 20 seconds an innocent baby is killed within his or her mother’s womb.
This Sunday, January 17, has been designated as Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. Churches across our land will […]
I’m not sure if I like the idea of setting a New Year’s resolution. I see the value of establishing goals, but I’m not fond of ambitious hype that ends in un-kept vows. Some years I set a resolution; some years I don’t. And I’m sure that most folks are like me, in that, […]
