  • Fruitful Fasting
    • I’ve done some food fasts that have lasted a few days. I’m considering trying a longer one. Any advice? —Faster in Idaho

8) Answers to Last Month’s Prayers

  • On May 11, Barb and I celebrated with 17 other couples at the Recommitment Ceremony and Graduation of this semester of the ReEngage Marriage Ministry we co-direct at Academy Christian Church. One of the couples began the semester as a divorced couple that arrived in separate cars. They are no planning to be remarried. We’re delighted for them!!!
  • We’ll be home for an entire month – it’s the first time in a long time. It was a delight.
