The power of a Boy’s Imagination should never be Underestimate

 

undergroundfortClarksville, TN – My husband Bill moved to Virginia Beach, Virginia when he was eight. He lived eventually on Mediterranean Avenue near a boy named Dave who became his best friend. The two had many adventures together throughout their school career.

The summer when Dave was 12 and Bill was 11 found them in a cleared area of a vacant lot behind Dave’s house. Having built all types of forts above ground and in trees, it now became evident that the time had come to move underground for a secret fort known only to the two of them.

Bill remembers that they dug for days to make a room-sized hole large enough to accommodate some apple crates and a small table where they could have secret meetings and play all types of spying games and other imaginary adventures. «Read the rest of this article»

What’s On Your Mind (Part III)

 

Leap of Faith MinistriesClarksville, TN – Many Christians reach a plateau in their spiritual lives and seem able to go no further. They pray, study the Bible, attend church regularly, tithe, memorize Bible promises and keep trying to grow in faith.

What’s On Your Mind

 

Leap of Faith MinistriesClarksville, TN – Your mind is like a computer. Every thought that flows through it, and every image that you create, is inscribed on the cells of your brain.  Recall some of your thoughts and created images. Then imagine them on a motion picture screen. Would you be willing, and pleased, for that film to be shown to every Sunday school class in our land? No? Why not?
