Living In The Truth When It’s Hard And Ugly

By Leslie Vernick | August 31, 2022 |

Morning friend, I’m angry as I answer this reader’s question.

By Leslie Vernick | March 2, 2022 |

Morning friend, I’m scared. The world has turned upside down over the past week just as we thought things were returning to normal.

By Leslie Vernick | April 21, 2021 |

Morning friends, Do you ever read the Bible and “see” a new verse in there?  One that you’ve never seen before even though you’ve read it from cover to cover several times?

Is Sex A Choice Or A Requirement?

By Leslie Vernick | November 20, 2019 |
