Catching The Season’s Contagious Colds

The winter season is here! We’ve traded our boat-shoes for snow-boots and our mornings are spent shoveling the car out of the snow and defrosting our car windows. Snowflakes decorate our home windows while snowmen stand proudly in our front lawn. The kids are engaging in snow fights, making snow angels, and building igloos in the backyard. When I was younger, I shoveled snow off of my neighbor’s sidewalk and driveways for extra cash.

The Mistake of Dividing Faith and Life

Faith and Life | Living With Boxes

I grew up in the church and I made the mistake of separating faith and life. I said the sinner’s prayer at age seven which is what you did to become a Christian. I did it because I didn’t want to go to Hell and that was that. It was escaping the fires of Hell. As a seven-year-old, Hell was scary. There were pictures of men screaming with flames all around.
