I sat on my bed in the attic of the little house in Nashville, wrestling with the reality that a lifelong dream was coming to an end.  In the morning, I would be loading up the car to drive back home to Canada.

The Faith of a Four-Year-Old

by Leslie Ludy

Jesus said, “Unless you humble yourself and become like a little child, you shall not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”  (Matthew 18:3-4) How easy it is for us adults to over-complicate our faith!

We have had little Gracie for about three weeks now. I have to admit, this little mangy pooch is growing on me.
