When the Holy Spirit quickens a believer's heart to be baptized, Vickie Munton notes that a faithful pastor or teacher often is the one who adds a voice of encouragement to obey.
O'FALLON, Ill. (BP) -- It is inevitable, you know. Those precious babies melt your heart, and then one day they break it. Disclaimer: I am an empty-nester, and I was by no means a perfect parent of perfect children in drawing some conclusions from my years of parenting. Knowing that parenting as a team is crucial, my husband took an active role. While many decisions naturally occurred when he was not home, we vowed to have a united front no matter who was leading the way.
Vickie Munton, reflecting on her early years of marriage, recounts the hard work, sacrifice and faith through which "God laid the foundation for our future."
