Building a Home That Serves Christ and His Kingdom

On my way to the Farmers Market today, I was happily listening and singing along with Judy Roger’s CD Never Be Shaken, a collection of Psalms put to music.  The title song is taken from Psalm 112 and the lyrics include a list of those who will never be shaken.  It goes, Who may dwell, …

Norma McCorvey died February 18, 2017. Many will not recognize this name, but would recognize the Supreme Court decision named for her, Roe v. Wade.
