Children are like a sponge

Children are like a sponge

by Rhonda Barrett ~ Children are a sponge when it comes to memorizing. Take advantage of this time you have with your sons and daughters.  You have a short window of time, before you know it, they will be young men and young women–hopefully, prayerfully–young men and women of God. If I could raise Rex […]

His still, small voice

His still, small voice

by Rhonda Barrett ~ I’d guess about 99% of the time God speaks to me from His Word as I sit and read His Holy Bible.  However, every once a while He speaks to me in His “still, small voice” in my heart, my soul, my spirit. It’s usually when I least expect it.  And […]

At the top of my list

by Rhonda Barrett ~ Of all the “things” I’ve ever done in my life–at the top of the list–is praying together with my two boys (almost) every night when they were growing up. I watched as my two sons turned from toddlers, to teenagers, to men; and I had the privilege of witnessing their prayer […]

Watch your words

Watch your words

by Rhonda Barrett ~ I’m very excited!  Gary and I will be on a 25th Anniversary Ministry Tour in the Northwest the months of October and November, Lord willing.  As I thought about this trip…my mind wandered to the past… Gary and I became Believers in 1978, in Washington.  We attended Calvary Temple (now called […]
