The Royal Bride Conference

The Royal Bride Conference

The Women’s Vessel group recently presented The Royal Bride conference.

The conference centered on the purity and sanctity of marriage and women longing for marriage.  Participants included Pastor Joyce Lester and Minister Maisha Barrett.  Several other presenters were present and shared topics ranging from women’s health issues to domestic violence. 

Conference organizer Jennifer Watson stated that this event was not only a way for women to connect with one another, but a way for each woman to gain a better understanding in her relationship with Christ.

More love, less hate

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. (1 John 4:8)

I recently heard the quote “There is a thin line between love and hate.” But I did not agree with it. I believe that there is more than a thin line between love and hate.

Think about this, if a person was in a plane traveling east, even if they continued in that direction for years, they would still be traveling east. They would never intersect with west in this direction.

Man Talk: Like Father, Like Son

This past Sunday, we celebrated “Fathers Day.” It is a special day of recognition for the fathers and father figures in our lives. It also serves to highlight the importance that male influence has in the development of young men. As I think on this topic, the quote “like father, like son” comes to mind. This idiom has been around for hundreds of years and it is used when different generations of a family behave in the same way or have the same talents or defects.  It is a reminder that fathers willingly or unwillingly shape the behavior of their son.

Blessed Assurance

My name is Michelle K. Johnson and I have twice contributed to Insight News, and have appeared multiple times on "Conversations with Al McFarlane."

For the outdoorsy dad
Whether he is golfing, fishing, camping, hiking or gardening -- the outdoorsy dad's greatest summertime nemesis is insects. Yet many outdoorsmen and gardeners think twice about slathering on synthetic, man-made pesticides. This year, give Dad a less invasive, more elegant option: BugBand wristbands, whose natural vapors repel mosquitos, flies, gnats and more.The wristbands are reusable up to 120 hours, and come packaged in reusable plastic "pods." They are available in summery colors (including genderless choices such as red, yellow, light and dark green, blue, even a glow-in-the-dark version) and can also be fastened to belt loops, hatbands and the like. One of many BugBand natural insect repellent products (including sprays, towelettes and diffusers), the wristbands are available at retailers across the country ($4.95) and at www.bugband.net.
