  • HOW TO CREATE A MORNING ROUTINE…

    By Annelie on 30 November 2015 in with No Comments

    HOW TO CREATE A MORNING ROUTINE — WITH A SPOUSE, A BABY, AND A JOB TO DO Jake Keenum November 27, 2015 I’ve always loved mornings. Ever since I was a kid, there was a 3–4 hour window every morning in which the sun broke through the pines in our Georgia yard that hinted of a new day. When I was in college, I loved the mornings on the University of Georgia campus — there was a palpable buzz, a sense of purpose every morning. Maybe it was the fresh-cut grass or the chance to start over for the freshmen who got a little carried away downtown the night before. When I joined the Air Force, it was 6:20 am every morning....

  • The Powerful Prophetic Message of ‘Woodlawn’

    By Annelie on 06 November 2015 in with No Comments

    The Powerful Prophetic Message of ‘Woodlawn’ ‘Woodlawn’ is a must-see film. (Facebook) 6:00AM EST 11/5/2015 J. Lee Grady I rarely endorse films, and I don’t get any benefit from movie companies if I do. But I loved the movie Woodlawn so much that I am telling everybody to see it before it leaves the local Cineplex. You will want to buy the DVD too, even if you aren’t a fan of high school football. Woodlawn is the most unapologetically Christian film I’ve ever seen because it maintains an artful quality without ever becoming cheesy. American audiences are starved for films with positive messages that reinforce Christian faith instead of mocking it, and Hollywood has noticed that faith-based movies are...
