Your Mission Is Wherever You Are by Holly Gerth on (in)courage
Do you consider yourself a missionary? It simply means to have or be on mission, so you don’t have to live in Africa be a missionary. You are on a mission right where you are.

Why Satan Hates Your Family by Tim Challies
Family teaches us about God and Tim shares how families are under attack in recent times.
We know that a distinctly Christian notion of family is crucial to raising children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. But there is more at stake than raising the next generation of Christians.
