    based on 5 ratings
     | 786 views

    Angels always approach humans with "Don’t be afraid." Easier said than done. We are very afraid.

    As a kid fear was a great experience. Especially if it involved SOMEBODY ELSE being afraid. Christmas and Easter are great holidays, but when I was a kid, Halloween was the most fun. Dressing up like some ghost or monster and jumping out of the bushes to yell, “boo!” And to see your best ...read more

    Things we can do to help our children grow in Christ.

    When I was in the third grade, I had a teacher who would often lose her patience. I don’t remember what we did that aggravated her so, but I suppose we gave her good reasons to become upset with us.
