My Favorite Season


God has given us the different seasons of the year for our enjoyment, and we should try to enjoy each and every month that we are blessed with.

Since November has Thanksgiving and December has Christmas, I am really pretty content with the weather from March through December. March is the...



TRIVIA QUESTION: Which Fort Wayne college team has both father and daughter involved in its operations?

ANSWER: Indiana Tech Women's Softball Team.

The two involved are father, Dave Worrel-coach and daughter, Kristy Worrel-player. Both have their roots very deep in Waynedale.

(Ephesians 4:32) Being kind. How many times in a day do we lose our temper, snap at those we love, ignore those we work with, go to school with, and interact with each day? Sometimes, we are so wrapped up in our life, our problems, AND what we are trying to get done, we simply tune out others. You see, being kind requires us to care for others.
