Godís Word gives instruction, direction, clarity, and discernment. Iím really struggling with homeschooling, curriculum, and family issues. Does the Bible get that specific? Zan reminds us that Godís Word provides hope, encouragement, motivation, and comfort, and shows us how to draw these things out of Scripture.
