First Step

Posted by Andrea Bailey on

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to serve for three weeks at a Christian summer camp for orphans in the Ukraine. This camp was right by a river and mountain, and in the side of the mountain was the Sviatohirsk Cave Monastery. While we were there, we were able to tour the monastery, which...

Unequally Yoked

Posted by Andrea Bailey on

Growing up, I was blessed with the gift of watching a godly marriage in action. My parents served each other on a daily basis. They loved each other through every situation that life handed them with laughter and support. Unfortunately, I did not get the opportunity to see their dating life in...

Layers of Love

Love Sets Us Apart

Posted by Andrea Bailey on

I jumped out of bed, startled by the morning light. My alarm hadn’t gone off. Quickly, I grabbed my phone to see why. My phone would not even turn on. It was unplugged, and the battery was dead. About that time, my sweet teenager stuck her head in my room to ask to borrow a sweater, and I...

Posted by Andrea Bailey on

Grapevines will grow in nearly any kind of soil or climate, so most people believe that growing grapes is fairly easy.
