      They come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Some are precisely wrapped with a beautiful bow and others are presented in a bag with fun tissue paper flowing out the top. No matter how they are given, it’s always fun to get a gift! I’ve recently...

        Asbury is embarking on a brave journey in offering a new series entitled The Truth About Sex. It is both necessary and timely given the state of our culture and our denominational positions. Gaining a biblical perspective on the topics included...

          What? July? How did that happen? Anyone else wondering the same thing? The good thing about time flying by is that oftentimes distance from unhappy events helps to soften the rough edges of pain.

              It’s never happened before. Since I switched to a MAC laptop 8 years ago, I have never had a virus or lost a file. Until I did. I had this newsletter 85% finished when my computer rebooted and ate it. I found the other files I had open at the...

                    Good Acronym
                    03.29.21 | Women | by Andrea Stephens

                    I love a good acronym, an abbreviation that can be read as a single word. They are quick reminders of lengthier concepts usually worth remembering, at least the ones I’ve learned over the years. It’s said that the word acronym was coined around...
