Often we hear words “today sure went by fast” or wow, times just flew by today.” Fact is we are all given the same amount of time to use to the best of our abilities every day. Some of us are great planners and managers of time and then there are those, such as myself, deemed to be procrasti…

Faith is like our feet. Strange I know, but faith is what puts trust and belief in Almighty God into action. Without a strong, functional faith, our witness to the world and those unsaved, who need to hear His Word so desperately, would have little or no “holy spirit horsepower,” as my pastor says.

I have written many articles about my hometown Loris, her people, history and those who truly do make Loris “one of a kind.” I knew all about just how quick a group of people, once alerted to the needs of any individual due to a tragedy, accident, or life-changing event, can pray together, m…

As this paper hits the stands, it’s the last week of 2016. It’s a time of refection for most. So, what has been your greatest act, this year or in your lifetime, in your service to the Lord and those around you? What was it or could have been?

Christmastime is a season when one of God’s greatest gifts to mankind is elevated and expressed more openly. But our Creator meant it for us as an all-day, everyday way of life for those who love and trust our lives to Him.

It has been decades of turmoil, but the United States has stood steadfast in the face of oppression and personal freedom. Americans and those wishing to become Americans should be aware of the sacrifices made around the world at the loss of true American heroes.

The day set aside for Thanksgiving has passed. The day known in the crazy world of today, Black Friday, is also over. Ahead of us now we feel the mixture of emotions that comes with the desire to please our loved ones with the perfect gift. Let’s see, there is excitement, anxiousness, stress…

Thanksgiving Day, a once special day has been swallowed up in generations of change. Heck, how about showing gratitude or being thankful that our country, despite her changes, is still much better to live in than many undeveloped nations of the world?

Thanksgiving – it’s a special time often lost in today’s commercial world. It’s a very important time in American history, and needed to bring thanks back to the One who makes everything possible. Don’t miss it this year and head straight into Christmas without thanking God for His good gifts.

What is a church? It is not a building or a certain group of people following religious principles and age-old ritual. The church of today and its goal are plainly written in the last words of Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20 exhorting believers about The Great Commission.

Joy! We hear the word often. We sing about it in songs and read about it in God’s Word. In earthly terms, Webster defines joy as an emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying. A keen pleasure or elation. A source or cause of keen pleasure or de…

Our world today is full of seekers - those seeking to find their fortunes, their worth, their ultimate goal in life. As believers we often follow suit, seeking to find our place in the world when we should learn a valuable lesson from the life of Nicodemus.

Philippians 4:13 is one of the most quoted verse in God’s Word. I have read the verse over and over. Its words are framed on the wall in my home in two places, and in my office as well. It was not until l continued to grow in the faith that I began to believe this verse is absolute fact. I l…

It is so hard to believe that 15 years has passed so quickly. The sting of the terrorists attacks on American soil and the true spirit of America that showed through that day seems to have been lost. Not forgotten, ever, but lost in the busy pace of life.

When we look at the life of Abram, one of the greatest leaders in biblical time, we see a man who had many faults. He lied to foreign kings about his wife to save his own life. He had an illegitimate child with his wife’s servant. Abram’s life was far from perfect, but the thing that disting…

Over the short time of Aug. 1-7, one week exactly, I have learned some pretty awesome stuff about our Creator. I got a fresh perspective, just as many astrophysicists and other brilliant minds are actually admitting that God is.
