Four Ways Getting The Gospel Right Ain’t Enough – “Christianity centers on the gospel of Jesus Christ. Is doctrinal precision all we need to get gospel right?

5 Benefits Of Having A Challenging Teen – “Our children’s struggles are as much about us as they are about them. So praise God and thank him, that as difficult as things are, he is at work both in you and your teen. Don’t give up, even if you see little change or fruit. God isn’t done working yet.
