T.M.: Moms’ Night Out (closely followed by Son of God and God’s Not Dead).

What an answer to prayer; God has done Ephesians 3:20!
Dave: Love Does by Bob Goff.
Julie: Kisses from Katie by
What was your favorite PI article you wrote in 2014?

T.M.: “7 Truths About Pornography” because it shed light on a really important topic, allowed our girls to share their struggles and inspired many to turn away from the sin.
Christi: “I Will Wait for You Spoken Word”

And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.” And Psalm 145:5: “I will meditate on your majestic, glorious splendor and your wonderful miracles.”
T.M.: Philippians 4:6-7: “Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
