Trishan Visits Rehema

It was half-past five and Aunt Savitri was in the living-room, relaxing and watching television. I decided that it was time for me to leave. "I'll see you on Saturday," I said.

Keep Your Heart

Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.

Overcoming Fear

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind - 2 Timothy 1:7 I used to think that as a Christian woman, fear isn't something I should ever feel so whenever I experienced it, I felt guilty and chided myself, saying, "You shouldn't be feeling …
