Samantha Taylor Samantha Taylor Fitness Many times it’s tragedies in life that test what we truly believe. I know this more than ever because it’s been over a month since my husband went to heaven. He was only 51 and in absolutely incredible physical shape, investing most of his life in health and fitness, so this is quite a shock. Honestly, I thought that with the level of care we took with our health that a physical illness wouldn’t be something that either of us would have to worry about at a young age. But I have painfully and humbly … Continue reading Even in My Pain, I Trust You

Dr. Dan Coflin Pastor, River of Life Church Have you ever heard the story of the prodigal son? You can read it in the fifteenth chapter of the Gospel of Luke.

False Evidence Appearing Real Jesus had been teaching the crowds and was weary. Just a day like every other day. In order to self-isolate, He and His disciples boarded a boat and headed toward the other side of the lake. He was resting in the stern when suddenly something unexpected happened: a violent storm erupted around them, swamping the boat. Isn’t that exactly what is happening to us today. Our storm is a pandemic, but the resulting emotions and fears are the same. They feared almost immediate death, while we fear major illness, possible death, a collapse of our economy, … Continue reading False Evidence Appearing Real

By Dr. Dianne Coflin Co-Pastor, River of Life Church Have you ever wished you could take back a sin you committed? Maybe it was a huge temptation and you fell into the trap.
