Building Healthy Families

Posted June 9, 2021

Building Healthy Families: Have you ever been inside a cave? Besides the flashlight you hopefully brought in with you, it is complete darkness. The luxury of flipping on a switch to turn the electricity on just isn’t there. Many people right here in Iowa live every day in the darkness. We know that in a world of darkness, Jesus is our light! He invites us to share that Light. How can you do that this week? “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14 Lutheran Family Service -
