But for me summer means living out my faith with my neighbors at Budget Suites Lewisville and Highland Acres Mobile Home Park. What started out as a way to do... Read More

I Survived!

Read about Barbara Doores' faith journey as a youth leader and what led her to host the Trietsch Youth Life Group in her home: There are so many lessons that I have learned throughout my life. There are opportunities we should grasp. There are challenges we should face. There is undeniably a God we can trust. There is growth for ourselves when we realize it is not about us. There is growth for ourselves when we get out of our expected comfort. There is a growth in relationships... Read More

The lightning flashing across the sky, the thunder shacking the windows, it's thrilling and exciting. I like storms. I see God in storms. The power and... Read More
