    I love courtroom dramas especially the ones written by John Grisham: The Pelican Brief, The Rainmaker, Runaway Jury. Then there are the TV shows like Perry Mason, JAG, Judging Amy, Law and Order and so forth. It’s great to see these great legal minds in a battle of wits trying to prove their case. ...read more

    Because we know so many are entering times of refining, we need to really understand what refining is, what it does and what it may look like. That way we will recognize it when it shows up, and work WITH God and not against Him in the process. If you work against Him, you will only be in the ...read more
