A Testimony of God’s Faithfulness

Divine Invitations Scripture is packed with invitations to draw near to God to enjoy rich and satisfying fellowship with him, yet we can so often allow the cares of our lives to interfere.

The 3 Most Important Things about Prayer

By Arnaldo Cavazos* A Father’s Pop Quiz On most mornings, our family says a prayer for God's help during the coming day.
