Shelly's Story of Faith & Family - Turn One of ‘Those’ Days Into One of God’s Days  
Christian Column  - Life
Fiction: False
I have often found myself uttering the phrase, “It’s just one of those days.” Thinking about that phrase makes me wonder just what “one of those days” is and how I can turn it into, “It’s a great and blessed day” instead. I’m sure “one of those days” means different things to all of us. It also can mean something different to each of us at different points in our lives. It can be one of tho ... Read Christian Column

Christian Column  - Life
Fiction: False
As the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks against the United States approaches, communities across the country are planning ways to honor those who died on that day.
