Maybe It’s All Ok
I know this: Love is still there in the middle of our every bad decision and wrong turn, looking upon us with no judgement, holding us despite our own disbelief.
The Difference Between Knowing and Believing
I am discovering that knowing and believing are two separate things. Knowing comes from within. It's the truth residing in your own flesh and bones. Believing is an act of your conscious mind. It is a mental choice, influenced by endless external factors. When your knowing and believing are not in alignment, you will experience … Continue reading The Difference Between Knowing and Believing

Biblical Support for Spirit Guides and Communicating with the Dead
If you are, or ever have been, an Evangelical Christian, at some point you've probably been told that spirit guides/spirit helpers and communicating with the dead are unbiblical. You may have also been told that the dead folks and spirit guides that people claim to be in contact with are actually demons.
