How a Wild Mustang Opened My Eyes To God’s Sovereignty

I never imagined that God would use a wild mustang to bring me closer to Him, but Outlaw was proof that the Lord works in mysterious ways.

Working at a children’s ministry in September 2018, senior Dani Jo Stevenson rides bareback on Hero, an American Quarter horse. Stevenson used only a halter to lead Hero in flexion exercises, which she uses with every horse she trains.

The feminist movement presents the fight for equality and dignity for women as God intended, but modern society’s twist on feminism has created problems of its own and distorted the mutual responsibilities between men and women that the Lord initially intended.

Falling Out of Love With “Love”

Many spend their lives in search of love, but do we as a society understand what love truly is? Contrary to popular belief encouraged by modern culture, love is more than the initial feel-good emotions and increasing heart rate, love is a long-term commitment that often takes hard work, and it’s work worth doing.

Love is a curious dance, sometimes flowing carefree with the melodic music of life, sometimes starting and stopping like a needle bouncing across an old scratched vinyl record, but true love continues moving in rhythm between two people who are committed to the end of life’s beautiful song.
