How much time do you have?

How much time do you have? It seems like no matter how much time you have, it's never enough. The clock always seems to be ticking. Time is one of the most valuable commodities we all have. Last week my children both asked me what I wanted for Mother's Day. My answer was something that costs nothing, yet costs everything....time. Oh, they could have purchased me a variety of gifts, and I'm sure I would have appreciated anything they gave me, but the one thing I wanted more than anything was a bit of their time. Life seems to be on [...]

Front Line Friday!

It's Front Line Friday! I'm so excited to be able to introduce you to Redeeming Joy and its founder, Lanie George. Lanie and I originally met through another anti-trafficking organization and quickly became friends. She's based in Charlotte, North Carolina (my home state). We had the opportunity to attend an event in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. She is fierce and has a passion to see human trafficking eradicated from our nation. It's my pleasure to share some of her thoughts with you today. Lanie, when did you first learn about trafficking taking place in America? This is a tough one because [...]

What’s the value?

Have you found a penny on the ground lately? I find one every now and then. I used to pass them by thinking why bother. Now I pick them up and see them as God's little reminder to trust Him as I read "In God We Trust" imprinted on the coin. As a child I used to like it when I would get a brand new, shiny penny. There was something about the sparkle of it that I found more attractive than a dirty, old penny. It made no sense because the value of it was the same, but I [...]

Jesus, the Ultimate Thrifter

Born Again Blessings Do you ever shop at thrift stores or consignment sales? They are very similar. Thrift stores are stores that sell donated clothing, furniture, and household products that have been donated, thus making the money taken into the store pure profit.  My favorite thrift stores or second-hand stores are Wellspring Treasures and The Salvation Army, not because of what they carry in their stores, but the purpose behind their stores.  Wellspring Treasures exists for the sole purpose of funding Wellspring Living, a treatment program for victims of human sex trafficking in Georgia.  The Salvation Army has [...]

Signed

Do you have an autograph of anyone famous? When I was little my older brother, David, received a Dallas Cowboys picture that had been autographed by several of the players. He was beyond excited because he loved the Dallas Cowboys (that was back in the Tom Laundry days for those of you who are Cowboys fans).  My neighbor is a die hard Third Day fan and he paid handsomely for an item autographed by Mac Powell. When someone's signature is attached to something they made or a photograph of them, it tends to increase in value, especially if that person [...]
