What He Asks of Us

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son..."~ John 3:16 It's the most memorized verse of the Bible. One we know so well and see so often that we probably don't really pause to think about it anymore. But the other week in church, it was one of the verses our speaker...

Word of the Week – Habit, Habitat, Inhabit

A while back, my husband and I were wondering how habit and habitat were related. Clearly they share a root, but what's the common idea between them? Well, we were wondering it at bedtime, so I didn't immediately go and look it up, but eventually I remembered to. 😉 They are indeed both from the...
