DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS?

Do you ever question God and wonder about His timing? Do you ever sit and ponder and ask God those tough, “But why, God,” questions? Or do you just simply look at all that is happening and taking place in your life, or those around you, and ask, “Why,” “Why me,” “Why them,” or “What now?”  More...

One such lady in my life was Donnita Heard, a Godly woman who loved being a preacher’s wife and a mother to eight children and one stepchild. Donnita was a member of that special type of people who are always encouraging and lifting others up. The first time I met her, she was going through the house singing. She always had a song on her heart, even through difficult times, and you couldn’t be in a bad mood after you talked with her.  More...
