In the points that the two authors make, they reflect on God and what he has done in their lives, yet it seems like God is doing or has done that very same in my life.

Jay Ryan 3/25/99 American Enterprise: It's Worth Fishing For It was about 10:00 at night when my father enters my room and awakens me to get ready for our over night fishing trip.

Boils were the bu ...

It was during the reign of Queen Elizabeth (1558-1603) that the Puritan movement was born. Godly ministers multiplied through the nation. Th ...
