Clarksville, TN – When I was a social worker years ago, I was very eager to help people. I would see them struggling to pay bills, or to have gas money to get around. I hated watching people struggle to make ends meet. It kept me up some nights.
My primary role was to help them (usually young single mothers) with parenting skills and to teach them prenatal, infant and child development. Another part of my job was to help them with their budgeting. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – When your eyes are examined, the doctor holds a card in front of you and says, “Keep your eyes here, but tell me when you see my other hand.” Then he brings his hand from behind your head and pretty soon, out of the corner of your eye you see that hand.

Clarksville, TN – If I gave you 10 cents as a free gift you probably wouldn’t get excited. One would probably throw it away or laugh. Then if I gave you another 10 cents you may shake your head and probably disregard the gift still at a loss trying to figure out what I’m trying to prove.

And if I gave you another one you will stare at me in amazement as you begin to realize just how fortunate you are.

As long as you live, you’ll want to talk about it. «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville, TN – Do you think it would be easier to be perfect if you weren’t surrounded by difficult people? Think about it though, why are people the way they are?

Clarksville, TN – There are some things in Christianity that are harder to understand then other things. Submission is one of them.
When we become Christians, one of the first things we are told about our new life is that “But as many as received Him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God…” (John 1:12 KJV).
When we first discover that verse we think “Wonderful, all that power is mine!” Then we find out even better news, “and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ…” (Romans 8:17 NKJV) Just imagine being joint heirs with the Son of God who said “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” (Matthew 28:18 NKJV) «Read the rest of this article»

What should be the attitude of believers towards the drug scene with its amphetamines, barbituates, heroin, cocaine, PCP, opium, weed, LSD, peyote, glue, nitrous oxide, and prescription drugs; such as codeine, Darvon and Percoden? Does the Bible have anything to say about them? «Read the rest of this article»
