Devo - Lessons from Eden

Genesis 2:25 says “And the man and his wife were both naked and where not ashamed.”   In the beautiful Garden that God had created, with every kind of fruit tree and flowering bush and bears and foxes and crystal-clear streams and lush green hills, Adam and Eve were perfectly comfortable without clothes.

They could have walked with Him like we would walk with a  friend. Eye to eye and heart to heart, their fellowship must have been astounding.   I cannot miss this!  The reason that life is so uncomfortable

Crafting with Casey - Bath Bombs

We wish you a very Happy Easter!! We hope you intentionally seek ways to celebrate the risen Savior this weekend.   Today, Casey shares how to make your own bath bombs.
