”The files of heaven are filled with stories of redeemed, refitted renegades and rebels.”

”When I study God’s Word, I can’t imagine doing anything else.”

”Jesus’ teaching gives you the foundation you need for both this life and the next.”

“When I’m in the flow of something, I kind of have to get out of the way and let it happen that’s some of the greatest moments in all of life.”

”Failures are only temporary tests and misses to prepare us for permanent triumphs.”

”Be sure to guard your heart against false teaching. No one can guard it for you.”

”Patience can be defined as the spirit which could take revenge if it liked, but utterly refuses to do so.”

”I’ll claim today that the danger in judging others is that we’re seldom completely objective.”

”Christianity is not a religious ritual or code of moral ethics; it is living a divine life through Christ.”

”Rare is the person who admits failure to keep a promise and refuses to rationalize around it.”

”When you find yourself judging another, remember you likely don’t know all the facts about their situation.”

I am sooooo blessed to have found Stonebriar Community Church when I moved back to Dallas from Bellevue, WA. When in Bellevue, I could not find a Church that seemed "right" for me so I watched ministers on television on Sundays and EVERY DAY I listened to Chuck Swindall on the radio. I am a Baptist minister's daughter and I had REALLY MISSED being part of a Christian church. Then I discovered that Chuck Swindall actually had his church not far from where I lived now! WOW! My best MIRACLE EVER!! First Sunday I attended I met Chuck and immediately joined his church. Met his BEAUTIFUL wife, Cynthia, and I attend EVERY SUNDAY! I could not be more blessed! THANK YOU HEAVENLY FATHER!!! 😇
