God often uses different things or people when speaking to us. Sometimes He speaks to us in ways we aren't expecting. Jen Otero dives into the topic of "hearing the voice of God," which is also a key in Mercy's "Keys to Freedom" series, and gives clear understanding on some ways God speaks to us.

Depending on the Lord in an Independent Culture


It's human nature to want to operate independently. In some cases, being independent is a good thing. When it comes to our relationship with God, however, we need to be dependent. Operating from a place of dependence in Christ is not only what He wants for our relationship with Him, it's then reflected on how we go about living our day to day lives.

A Father’s Perspective


When we carry our freedom within, we're then able to share that with others. It's especially important to keep our faith and freedom at the center of our families. Parenting has its challenges, but when God is always our focus, we're able to demonstrate His love to impact our children's lives.

Goals Vs. Resolutions


Our encouragement with this week's blog is to challenge you to set some GOALS for the year ahead instead of resolutions. What's the difference? Resolutions typically only last for a short time and do not have the additional thought and foresight attached to them to allow them to live past January 31st! In fact, studies show that over half of Americans make New Year's resolutions, but only 8% succeed in keeping them to a place of success!
