Joanna Gaines is a wife, mother, and HGTV designer that is a star on the show "Fixer Upper." But, she didn't just get lucky and wind up there one day. She had gone through a few tribulations in life until making a promise with God. Joanna kept it, and in the end He delivered.
This woman and her husband are proud Christians that speak to God often and openly. As a child growing up, Joanna had trouble because she was two different cultures and it had an effect on her confidence. When she got out of college, she met a man that she eventually married years later. Growing up she always had a desire to be a designer and have her own shop. But that's easier said than done.
After some time, she was finally able to open up a shop. She enjoyed her time in the shop, and within time became pregnant. This cause her to shut the shop down because she felt it was time she needed to spend with her child. This is what her and God spoke about before closing down. People who found out about her and what she does, came to visit and wanted to shoot a show of her family. She and her husband Chip agreed to do so. more >>
The man who co-wrote a novelty Bible that replaces the word "God" with Kanye, in honor of iconic rapper Kanye West, says his book is not intended to offend Christians but rather to provoke thought and broader discussions about faith and culture.
The Book of Yeezus, which is a nod to West's sixth studio album, was initially thought by some to be a hoax when it appeared for sale online earlier this week but one of its three authors has confirmed its authenticity. The book recently sparked a firestorm of criticism and one of the authors has spoken out publicly for the first time in an exclusive interview with The Christian Post.
The author, who chose not to reveal his idenity, defended himself during a phone call with CP on Wednesday just days after critics took to social media to blast The Book of Yeezus as "offensive" and "blasphemous." more >>

Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham has posted an update on the construction work for the life-size Noah's Ark project that's being built in Williamstown, Kentucky, and said that despite "naysayers" and "enormous amount of false information," it is on schedule to be completed by 2016.
"Despite all the naysayers, and the enormous amount of false information certain people and organizations have spread about this project — it is moving ahead nicely toward the opening in 2016. We just praise the Lord for this," Ham said in a Facebook message on Thursday.
The message also linked to a number of photos from the construction site that show the different stages of the project, as well as a video from the Ark Encounter's staff meeting, which was led by Ham. more >>
Pastor Jerry Stephenson who introduced Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., on Tuesday for his presidential announcement also issued a statement about President Obama's religious views that left many questioning its meaning. Stephenson spoke with The Christian Post to elaborate on that initial statement and explained why he believes Obama's angry with Christianity and could evolve away from the religion.
"In five years, we'll find out what Obama's real religion is," Stephenson told a radio interviewer after Paul made his announcement on Tuesday. "I think the evidence of his actions are not friendly toward Christians. Once he's out, he will 'evolve' like he did on gay marriage. I just believe that's what he will do."
Stephenson is the pastor of Midwest Church of Christ in Louisville, Kentucky, and further elaborated on his remarks in an interview with CP. more >>
I recently referred to a true story. A young girl, devastated by the choice her father made to leave her family for a younger woman, had a nightmare following his announcement. She dreamt that she, her mother and sister all died in a horrific car accident. When she told her dad about the dream, he sympathetically replied, "I'm really sorry to hear that. I'm glad it was only a dream." Her response was shattering, "Dad, right before we hit, through the window I saw that you were driving the other car."
Fortunately, this man broke. He repented and worked to restore his marriage. Some of you reading this - men and women - wake up. Is this what you are doing to your family? And others reading this, might ask this as well. Perhaps its not an affair but selfish pride that makes you difficult to live with. Sadly, it is this very thing, pride and spiritual blindness, that prevent us from seeing. We are alive but spiritually dead.
Some time ago, we received the following email, "I'm leaving my husband and our two small children. I know what the Bible says, but God knows my heart. He just wants me to be happy." Another woman who was separated recently complained about her marriage but said that she was "seeking God's will" as she headed to Vegas with her boyfriend. We want to shout, "Wake up!" Sin blinds us from the truth and we blame everyone and everything, instead of looking within. more >>
