Welcome to my blog! I hope to be a resource to help you in your walk with God. Now more than ever we need to get back to the basic fundamentals of moral living and take a stand for what is right and truthful with God as our ultimate authority. His Word is reliable and preserved and can be trusted, so that is the basis for my advice and teaching. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or topics you would like me to cover. I look forward to sharing what God has placed on my heart. See my website at http://www.dawnfoss.tateauthor.com and http://www.dawnfoss.com/ for books and music I have written that will enrich your life!

Ezekiel 22:30: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none." Let's stand in the gap together!

What Does Our Country Stand For?

Government that wants to have total control and tons of regulations tends to squash the spirit of America that was created to thrive and explore and create businesses with honor and independence.  The alternative is communism.  Government was set up to protect that way of life, not provide for the people, but so they can provide for themselves.  Soldiers were and are honored to protect our country because of the ideals she stands for.  These so-called "protesters" that we have seen lately are full of hate and full of destruction, and they are enemies of the American Way and democracy.  They ought to feel ashamed of themselves.  I hope that their eyes will be opened one day soon so they can see where they err, and get back on track so we are once again a unified nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice (yes, JUSTICE) for all.  With freedom comes what? Responsibility.  That's a hallmark of a great nation, mature, responsible people who have a sense of right and wrong and tend to choose right when the choice lies before them.  That's a godly nation to be proud of.  Not settling for mediocrity or complacency, but thriving with a spirit of Excellence.
