  • The prophet Amos spoke words from God to the people of Israel, known as the Northern Kingdom during the eighth century B.C.  He proclaimed powerful words of judgment on all those who had roles in government, religion and commerce.  If you work in any of these, and you are willing to take a good honest look at yourself, read Amos.  The most often quoted verse in Amos is, “Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” (Amos 5:24).

  • Ask Andrea Essenpreis how she got started in business and she’ll tell you it all began when she had a baby just over nine years ago.

    “I had a corporate job, sitting at a desk in a nice office,” Essenpreis said. “After I had my first child, I quit my day job to be at home with him. I soon found myself baking…a lot. I had always been a hobbyist baker, but it was like I had a need or compulsion. I had to bake “all the time.”

  • God will go to great lengths to teach us to trust Him more. 

    This usually happens in the hardest times in our life, because we live in a fallen world, where sin, death and evil must be dealt with regularly in our lives. Life is hard! 

    It is during those hard times that we often turn to the Lord for strength.  This is a wise thing to do, for God desires to care for us, and draw us closer to Him.
