Potts Pages - Think About It
July 14, 2018

How many times have we heard or even said ourselves, “I may have thought it, but I didn’t say it?” We think somehow that it’s okay if the bad comment doesn’t come out of our mouths. The Bible has a lot to say about our thought life too.

Potts Pages - One Nation Under God
July 04, 2018

This week is the time when we reflect on our nation and how great it is to live in America. There are so many facets of our history that we have forgotten or never knew and many of them are right before our face constantly.

Potts Pages - God is Faithful
June 30, 2018

Last weekend I attended the Kentucky Christian Writers Conference. After the conference ended on Saturday, my family and I stayed in the beautiful Elizabethtown, Kentucky and waited until Sunday to drive home.

Potts Pages - Jesus-The Cornerstone
June 16, 2018

We know that when Jesus taught, he used examples of common everyday things that the people of biblical times would recognize and could easily understand. He talked about such things as seeds, sheep, lost coins to make his spiritual lessons real to those he was teaching. Where do you think Jesus learned to teach like this?

Potts Pages - A Parable and a Provision
June 01, 2018

Churches all around my area are preparing for Vacation Bible School. Along with the crafts, cookies, and Kool-Aid, I remember learning the basic Bible stories during this time. As homage to VBS, I thought we would look at one of them this week and see that there is much more to the story than what we learned as a child.

Potts Pages - Crutches and Salvation for the Weak
May 26, 2018

While shopping at a nearby town, I ran into a grocery store to buy a couple of things. As I checked out and was leaving, I noticed something odd. Standing by the door of the grocery store, was a pair of crutches with a sign attached that said, “Free crutches.” The thought ran through my head that I hoped someone who really needed them got them.  As I exited the store into the parking lot headed for my car I stepped in a hole and almost turned my ankle. I chuckled to myself that If I had fallen those free crutches were waiting for me inside.

Potts Pages - Transitioning Well
May 18, 2018

The month of May seems to be a transitional month. School is out for the summer. College kids are moving out of their dorms. Even the weather is in transition. You never know what you are going to get when you go outside. Transition can be exciting and new, or they can be hard and unnerving.

Potts Pages - The Power of a Mother's Words
January 01, 2018

As I sat in the audience, some forty years later and listened to this man recount his story, his next words were profound. He said, “Had it not been for this immediate positive response from my mother, I might have given up on my art.” After all these years, this now successful artist gives credit for his success to the encouragement of his mother and more specifically to her words on one particular day when he was fourteen years old. The world told him he couldn’t, but his mother told him he could. Wow! What power a mother’s words carry.

Potts Pages - Respectfully Listening
May 01, 2018

Have you ever been guilty of talking when you should be listening? Not only do you miss information, but it is also rude to be talking while someone else is speaking. If you have ever worked with children, you know that it a constant occurrence. They must be taught to listen to instructions.

Potts Pages - Friends-Life Connections
April 14, 2018

I recently had a birthday and part of my day was spent reading the birthday wishes that I received on Facebook. I thought about each person and how I had come to know them. Some were old high school or college friends. Some were accumulated at different jobs I’ve had throughout my life. Many are church friends, and many others are my writer friends.

Potts Pages - Gracious Assumptions
April 07, 2018

One day a while back my daughter and I were at the mall. We sat down in the food court to take a break and regroup when we noticed a boy a few tables over who was visibly upset. We estimated his age to be twelve or early teens. He had his head down and looked as though he was fighting back tears. His parents were with him, and they seemed to be looking for something. Soon two older teenage girls walked up and when he saw that they had not found what they were looking for he became even more distressed and put his head down on the table.

Potts Pages - Easter-It is Finished
March 30, 2018

As I began thinking about what to blog for Easter, I thought about looking at the symbols of Easter and their origins. Many of them have nothing to do with the true meaning of Easter and have pagan origins. However, we can give them a Christian meaning as we use them to teach our children about Easter.

Potts Pages - Spring- A New Thing
March 24, 2018

Spring has sprung this week! We can just say the word “spring,” and excitement starts to rise in us, doesn’t it? We get tired of the same old doldrums, and we long for something new.
