Making the Most of Our Time

By David Butts | April 8, 2024

Springtime is such a magical time of the year.  When I say magical, I mean it seems like magic that my yard and flowerbeds transform from dull, gray, and bland to green and colorful right before my eyes. One day I’m looking out my window at my backyard at all the projects I want to…

Stay Connected

By David Butts | January 23, 2023

It seems like 2023 is already going at a rapid speed. It was just a few weeks ago life was at a much slower pace over the Christmas and New Year’s break. One of the things that I cherished most about the first couple of weeks of the new year was the opportunity to focus…

Traditions and Memories

God Calls Young People

By David Butts | September 28, 2022

When I was in high school we had a youth rally at our church with a guest speaker. He gave his testimony of when he became a Christian. There was a large crowd of kids there to hear him share his testimony and I’m sure the free pizza didn’t hurt. I remember listening to him…
