    The Book of Psalms is actually my favorite part of the Bible and then I would have to say John 3:16 because that is the first thing out of the Bible that my children memorized as a family we were baptized in this church and we really have grown to love it we have moved away from the church but are are going to be moving back closer soon

    The goodness and mercy of God are here ascribed. He is a forgiving God and worthy of praise.
    Thanks be to God for His unconditional love.

    After Decades of spiritual warfare, God is opening my eyes to his will in which I had no faith to speak of. Pray for me as I struggle through the rubble and carry on as a true Christian Soldier.
    Thank You!
