Providing An Environment For

Spiritual Growth

This is a place where men and women can develop a closer and more
meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ. Let’s talk and grow together.


I am so excited that you joined me. Sharing is one of the things I love to do. When I was in kindergarten, I would line my dolls in rows and teach them what I had learned that day. At seventy-two, I am still passionate about giving away the knowledge I have received. You see, to get the most out of this life God gave to me, I search the ultimate life management manual – the Bible. On this site, I share the time-tested truths I have found for victorious living.


70 Day Devotional

Praise From The Pews

In Praise from the Pews, the Bread of Life Christian Church family share their testimonies in this 70-day devotional. Some are funny; some are sad; and some are thought-provoking. All are accounts of what God has done in our lives. As you read how God answered the prayers of ordinary people in extraordinary ways, you too will give Him praise!

Whether you are looking to build your prayer life, develop a stronger and more meaningful walk of faith with God, or to start/continue becoming a great steward over what He has given you, Praise from the Pews will help guide you towards the relationship God has in mind for us all.

I’ve compiled many stories and examples to help each reader understand different obstacles/tests that we all may experience throughout our Christian walk, but when we follow Gods will for our lives, we can trust that He will make a way out of no way.
