057 Terese Talk: Just Right



You know the story of Goldilocks–a little girl who struggles to find comforts that are “just right.” When we look at the Earth around us, we can’t help but think of God’s hand making it, because everything is “just right” for sustaining life. It’s a journey through Genesis–to find your purpose.

056 Terese Talk: Bible Friends



What does it take to make a good friend? We all have different standards and expectations. So, who, from the Bible, do you think would make a great friend? We asked that question on our Family Life Facebook page and the answers were amazing! It got me to thinking about what makes a great friend—and how to be a good friend.

055 Terese Talk: Who Was At Creation



In the Beginning. When you think of Creation, who do you picture there? Probably God, the Father. And it’s true. He is the Creator. But He wasn’t the only one present. If we dig a little into scripture, we’ll discover the entire Trinity was present, as it always been, and always will be.

044 Terese Talk: Why Worship?



When was the last time you worshiped? The obvious answer might be Sunday morning, right? When everyone was singing at church. But worship happens outside church. In fact, it can happen without music. And you can stand in church, singing, and not really be worshiping. In this episode, Terese digs into what the Bible says. And maybe those of us who can’t really sing so hot will feel a little better about worship.
