We had one of our quarterly associational library meetings tonight. The program was an overview presentation of ECLM. One of the workers at our church had broken it down into (paper) notebook form to show everyone how easy it is to understand and complete.

We are excited to see what fruit will be produced over the next three months. This is a…Continue

After reading this, any minor aches or inconveniences in life should seem trivial to you . . . if they don't, then you should reread the book and complete the Bible Study at the end!…Continue
Stories of Faith and Courage from World War II
I have only skimmed a few pages but this looks like it will be an excellent book - - especially if you need a gift for a war buff. Not only is it a 365 page devotional but it gives a "unique and concise history of World War II with summaries, maps, and photographs…Continue
