This blog is for anyone who is interested in reasons to believe God exists or are wondering if the bible is reliable. It is also for those who may be struggling in their faith. Belief in God is not blind, but a faith supported by reason. The problem is, many people are unaware of the evidence that supports faith in the God of the bible.
Each of us have purpose and meaning. we are all loved by our creator who wants us to live a life full of joy by overcoming life’s difficulties. God doesn’t promise we will not suffer problems and pain, but he does promise we will not be overcome by them.
I am no stranger to tragedy. I lost my nephew at 10 years old and my closest brother died suddenly when I was in my twenties. I have lost both my parents, my son and one of my daughters. Josh was my first born, and Sara was my precious daughter.

Other biblical information in this blog is supported by Ph.D level renown scholars. The resources page is full of very interesting, scholarly information about the bible and God.
Jesus knows hardship and despair. His disciples abandon him and denied they knew him in his greatest need. He suffered incredible pain and loneliness as he endured the cruelties of mans inhumanity to man. So we can trust he understands anything we are going through.
John 16:32,33 “But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when you will be scattered, each one going his own way, leaving me alone. Yet I am not alone because the Father is with me. I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
1 Corinthians 2:9
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”
