Another epic, hilarious, adventure with the Croods! They need a safer place to live, which they find, but they have to live with the Bettermans… ugh. They don’t get along at first because of their differences but they learn to work together, accept each other’s differences, lean on each other, and become friends.

I love what Paul wrote about togetherness in 1 Corinthians 12:1-27 ( He’s basically highlighting how we are all different, but how all those differences are actually needed, and when put together we form the body, the people, the family, the church of Christ.

How can we be more accepting of each other’s differences?




This sequel to Wonder Woman is a whole lot of amazingness and more. The way this movie was filmed, the fashion, the action, the storyline.

So here in 1984 we see Diana grapple with calling, purpose, and truth versus a lie. The price is too high to continue to live a lie and she has to make a choice. Will she choose truth?

When something is true, nothing can stand against it. Truth sets us free from the lies the enemy tries to get us to believe.

Read John 14:6 ( and John 8:32 (

When we believe and accept the truth of Jesus, we will begin to walk in freedom.

News headline: Pagan star worshippers find Jesus!

The Magi’s story is steeped in mystery. God’s Word does tell us they weren’t kings, there weren’t necessarily 3 of them and no camel riding. They also visit Jesus later when he is a child, not a baby. Is that true?

Check it out for yourself here in Matthew 2:1-12 (

The Magi make a long, dangerous journey to find the new king. “When they saw the star, they were overjoyedthey saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshipped him” (Matthew 2:10,11). This Christmas time may we joyfully worship Jesus with all our hearts, in spirit and in truth.
