The Letter You Wish Everyone You Love Would ReadBy Terri Broome I had an older lady (who was very dear to me and very ill) say to me through tears, “The one thing I fear most is that my son and his family will go to hell.” In her older years, she started to read her Bible and listen to preachers who spoke truth. She was one of the most moral people I had ever
Persecution-How Christ Makes His Bride BeautifulBy Terri Broome I love to read. My favorite books are of people who know and love Christ; preferably from a prison cell or in a country where they are under persecution. Those people live a life of true freedom. They have the life I long for. To meet together in those countries can bring beatings, jail, rape, or death. Yet, they meet. They sing. They love. They aren’t fighting
Temptation - An Unlikely Path to VictoryBy Terri Broome Think back to childhood. What did you do when something scary came toward you, whether it be a growling dog or a stranger? Did you take your stand and prepare to fight or did you run into your mother’s arms for safety and bury your head in her shoulder. You didn’t fight; you didn’t even look at what scared you. You let your mom take care
"Save Me From Trying to be Profound"By Terri Broome “I remember a McDonald’s commercial where a little boy was sitting with his dad. He had a pencil in his hand and was filling out a little card. He looked up and said, “Dad, what’s sex?” I remember a McDonald’s commercial where a little boy was sitting with his dad. He had a pencil in his hand and was filling out a little card. He looked
"We Have Everything We Need...Today"By Terri Broome When my children were small, each day held endless possibilities. They woke up and came into the living room as I was reading my Bible. They knew I would be in the same place each morning. I would see their sweet faces and always let them know how happy I was to get to spend another day with them. God helped me understand that this window of opportunity
Socialism: Proof of our OriginBy Terri Broome “No, this is not a political rant. This is a simple “aha” moment I had and would like to share.” No, this is not a political rant. This is a simple “aha” moment I had and would like to share.  Socialism, in theory, is paradise. The government controls basically everything, people don’t own private property, and there are no needy people. It sounds like utopia. “Socialism has never
"The Danger of Being Alone"By Terri Broome The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”  Genesis 2:18 God created the entire world in a few days and scripture says “and God saw that it was good” over and over again. The first recorded time in the history of the world God said, “It is not good,” was when man was alone
"What Makes God Laugh"By Terri Broome I woke up at 4:00am with “what makes God laugh” on my mind. I can’t say for sure it was God but it spoke to me in such a way I wanted to share. I was barely awake and as clear as day, I thought about all the stuff we are upset about and how it makes God laugh to think that evil will win in the end. God
"Disappointment with God"By Terri Broome I was sitting in the bedroom of a friend’s house because I had to leave the room to get my bearings. I couldn’t understand how God was letting me suffer so much. I was teaching the Bible to women in my home, I was living by what He said the best I knew how, and I was homeschooling my children. I was slowly but surely learning to walk with God,
The One Thing That Matters MostBy Terri Broome Have you ever planned a party for someone and by the time the people arrived, you were ready to shoot yourself and them? Trying to get the house clean, decorate, outdo the parties you attended of the people coming (just kidding; kind of), and still pretend like you’re enjoying it can be pretty exhausting. “Somehow, the person receiving the party became the least important part.” Somehow, the
"What Mask are You Wearing?"By Terri Broome I vividly remember the day on my front porch as I was thinking, “What will people think?” It was a small thing that produced an internal conversation in my mind with God, but it changed the entire way I looked at life from that moment on. We all have an atmosphere we grew up in. The atmosphere in my home wasn’t terrible, it was just always about presenting
Suffering - The Gift Nobody WantsBy Terri Broome “It is doubtful whether God can bless a man greatly until he has hurt him deeply.”  A.W. Tozer How many people do you know that stay calm, cool, and collected in the middle of superheated circumstances. I don’t mean the fake kind of calm that’s waiting to get home and fall apart or kick the dog, I mean calm to the very core. “Heat and pressure force
