Book Review: 1000 Days–The Ministry of Christ by Jonathan Falwell

Don’t forget to submit your thankful post for use here in November. More details here. It’s been awhile since I’ve contribute as a BookSneeze blogger.

Children get it, don’t they? Where we  need theories and proof kids just know. Faith like a child is something adults should aspire to. I do! I was sharing a lesson with early elementary age girls and the topic was peace. Simply put, peace is the absence of worry. I explained that worry is not from God. When they start thinking about what if’s they should stop and remember the…
