What’s worse, Sandra’s friend infuriated her by suggesting her grief was a God-given path to maturity that would allow her to empathize with others who suffer. Read more…

This is the word of God; who He foreknew He predestined, He justified and He glorified to be conformed to the image of Jesus – so Jesus is the prototype of how our lives should look. Read more…
