15 Fellowship Ideas — Life and Favor (Job 10:12)

By Janelle Pollard Not that I don’t love a good home-cooked meal with people I love, but sometimes it’s nice to mix things up. Many congregations have a regularly scheduled fellowship meal, but sometimes it’s beneficial to plan other types of activities. Spending time together as a church family has many benefits.

The Harmful Effects of Pessimism — Life and Favor (Job 10:12)

By Janelle Pollard My husband Dale spoke at Polishing the Pulpit recently on the topic of pessimism and its effects on the church.

Too Good Not to Share — Life and Favor (Job 10:12)

Enjoy this guest post by Sandy Tipton. Twenty years or so ago I went to a Mary Kay party at a friend’s house.

A Place or A People? — Life and Favor (Job 10:12)

By Janelle Pollard “I’m going to church today.” “Would you like to visit my church?” “VBS meeting tonight at church!” These are a few examples of the kinds of things many Christians (myself included) often say or have said when referring to the place that we worship. Well-meaning, and probably due to habit or for […]Continue reading “A Place or A People? — Life and Favor (Job 10:12)”

Let’s Go for a Walk — Life and Favor (Job 10:12)

By Chelsea Pollard My husband and I have been trying to take advantage of the warm days by going for walks. We’ve enjoyed the breeze and the beautiful scenery around us!

It paints a clear picture of what our Christian […]Continue reading “Let’s Go for a Walk — Life and Favor (Job 10:12)”

The Pitcher Plant — Life and Favor (Job 10:12)

By Janelle Pollard My mother-in-law and my mom both have the greenest of thumbs. It seems they can look at any plant and tell me what it is, when and how it grows best, and its favorite places to shop. I, on the other hand, do not have this talent. However, I have always found […]Continue reading “The Pitcher Plant — Life and Favor (Job 10:12)”
