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
"The Purpose of Pain"By Terri Broome We have all watched the news or a documentary and wondered how God could allow some of the stuff we see in the world. I used to wonder that about my own childhood. I felt like I couldn’t overcome some of the unfair things that happened to me as a little girl. I didn’t want to have children of my own when I got married because I thought childhood
One of the Greatest Compliments We Can Give GodBy Terri Broome When my son, Scott, was preparing to go away to college I told him I wasn’t going to miss him at all. He replied, “I would never believe that no matter what you say.” Why was that his first reply? Why didn’t he say, “Mom, how could you say that?” I know the reason (besides I was joking). He knows I love him with
"Why in the World Would I Pray for My Enemies?"By Terri Broome Jesus and His Words. Oh, if we took the time to really ponder the depth of the things that came out of His mouth. God took on human flesh and came to this planet. His Words are recorded for us. We should read them and let them sink deeply into our psyches. Every word He said was a hundred percent truth from another
"Parenting Is No Joke Pt. 2"By Terri Broome My children had a bedtime of 9:00. I told them, “Mommy is nice until 9:00, after that, I  make no promises. You better get in bed.” That’s kind of funny but it was pretty much true.  Let’s be honest moms. We need some time at the end of the day to eat some ice-cream by ourselves or just stare at the wall without “ma, mama, mom, mommy.”
"Parenting is No Joke"By Terri Broome We’ve all been to the grocery store and tried our best to get out of earshot of the child throwing a temper tantrum because he or she can’t have something they want. The helpless mother is embarrassed and red-faced because the child doesn’t care about anything but getting its way. Ultimately, for the peace of everyone involved, the child gets what it wants and all is well in the
