Recognizing God-Given Gifts and Utilizing Them for His Glory

Written by Katelyn Bailey  How do we know what God has gifted us to do? Once we know what our gifts are, how do we use them to glorify Him?

FROM THE VAULT: The Importance of Mothers

[From the editor] If you do a quick search on the internet for the history of Mother’s Day, you will be told that mothers were celebrated as far back in history as the Greek and Roman times. A tradition started in 16th century England, known as Mothering Sunday, when Christians would return to their “Mother Church,” has slowly changed into a day to celebrate mothers.
