A Faithful Review of

Donna's Detour


About Donna's Detour:

When Donna Turner and two girlfriends leave Alabama in 1956 and head to California on Route 66, Donna runs out of money. Her girlfriends continue the journey to Los Angeles, leaving Donna in Needles, California where a dream-come-true adventure is about to happen.

She worshiped the ground he walked on when she was fifteen, and now he shows up at the diner where she works. Will he remember her or does he still think of her as her brother's skinny kid sister? Will Donna be confident enough in herself to accept her dream?

Faith for the Journey: Are You Free?

Are You Free?


Morning reading:John Chapter 8:25-58
Thoughts to consider:
It’s amazing how we can spend years believing, well, in anything. What happens when we are confronted about those beliefs? (v. 33) Like the Jews in John, we may turn away or worse, attack those delivering the message (v.59). Why would we? Justification? Rationalization? Some common ones are lack of faith, threats to our comfort zones, and infringements to our “rights.” Freedom is an assumed requirement for mankind’s contentment, but in the end, human nature inevitably leads to bondage. Such things as doubt, envy, wrath, hopelessness, and lust invade and lead to darkness. Without His Light to drive them away, we face a life of pain and suffering, even as Christians. We must stand strong in the Lord and keep our eyes and ears open to discern His truth amidst a world of deception.
John 8:32 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Questions to ponder during the day:
Is it to be assumed that the …

Faith for the Journey: Faith or Fairy Tales

Faith or Fairy Tales


Passage for this devotional taken from the NKJV: John 20:24-31
Why do you believe what you do? It’s an important question in this day and age. Do you have an answer?
John 20:25 The other disciples therefore said to him, "We have seen the Lord." So he said to them, "Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe."
In this passage, Jesus appeared to the disciples when they were hiding. Well, everyone except Thomas. When they announced the glorious news of the Savior’s resurrection, he was, for lack of a better word, a skeptic. Their experience wasn’t acceptable for this disciple. Thomas needed tangible evidence to dispel his lingering doubt. (v.25) Jesus appeared, and Thomas believed. (v.27)
What does it take for us to believe in a resurrected Savior? Is it a fairy tale or is it faith? Fiction or Truth? False or founded? 
The skeptics of this world say t…

Inspirational Moments: Faith for the Journey - Do Good to All

Do Good to All
Morning reading:Galatians Chapter 6.
Thoughts to consider:
What does it mean to do good to all? If we think our actions or mere worth in this world is enough to give us credence in His sight, we are deceived (v.3). But nor should we be discouraged. We are not alone in our walk as servants of Christ, nor should we act like it. The people around us matter. Our steps with the Father are not easy and neither are the steps of those we see in church pews on Sunday morning, much less those we know nothing about on our city streets. If life with the Master is hard, can you imagine the struggle without Him? If a man professes a life of roses and unicorns, is it true? His soul is condemned unless he knows the Savior Jesus Christ. That fact alone should cause the Christian to pause before turning away.
Gal 6:9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
