  • The Word of God answers our needs, provides advice

    I believe the Word of God has the anointing (ability) to speak to people. We read the Word and expound on it but the true Word of God is what speaks to our Spirit and tells us what to do and what not to do. It’s the answer to our needs and advice from our Savior, so I want to share God’s Word with you:

     

    Psalm 91, In God we trust,

    1.                  He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

  • Boyd recounts her experience at Panama City Beach

    Dateline Panama City Beach.  By the time you read your paper I will be back from spending a month down here at my favorite beach.  We lived near here when I was ages ten through seventeen and I have many great memories of family weekends spent looking for shells and riding the waves.

  • Consistent schedules important for children’s development

    Do you keep a regular daily schedule for your children?  Children need a family schedule they can count on. They should have enough rest and sleep every day. There should be time to eat meals without rushing. Time should be planned to complete homework. Finally, there should be time for enough physically active play that your child freely chooses.

  • Small actions can make a big difference in the community

    "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

    This quote by anthropologist Margaret Mead was one of my favorites when I was in high school and college because it reminded me that individuals and seemingly small actions can make a big difference in someone’s life. It has been a while since I have read these words, but I think of them now when I reflect on my experience Saturday morning at Project Comfort.
