The Secret to a Lasting Marriage
A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. I enjoyed hearing the responses from random people we'd tell. I got quite a few "wow, you don't see that much anymore." And one...
One of my favorite ways to keep in the Word is with my Bible app. It provides you with daily Bible verses to read and not only that but they have a plethora of reading plans and devotionals you can start. It makes reading the Bible everyday so...
