Building a Home That Serves Christ and His Kingdom

I recall many years ago, prior to my conversion,  sitting in my bedroom very sad that I had suffered an early miscarriage. I hadn’t taken a pregnancy test to confirm it, but I had suspected that I was pregnant. When my body went through the experience, it was obvious that something out of the ordinary …

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.

A law has passed in California that now will make its way to the governor for signature. He is most likely to sign it. The law requires pregnancy care centers (those whose mission it is to encourage women not to kill their unborn children) to post in large letters (font size is mandated in the …
