    in Christianity

    It is imperitive that believers in our day undrstand the meaning of this parable that Jesus offered that speaks of the difference between the wise and the foolish in waiting for His return.  God wants us to be waiting with expectancy.  However, many are not interested in comprehending the importance of this vital story relating to our ultimate destiny.


    Please listen as Mark Joneschiet, The Running Pastor, expounds on this classic parable from scripture.

    Casey of Cranberry Cove: Author Susan Kotch

    in Books

    I’m a Middle School Language Arts Teacher from Lavallette, New Jersey, who leaps out of bed each morning ready to greet my eighty 12-14 year-old students as they come into class complaining and moaning about how they hate to read and write. But I don’t take that personally. Instead, I try to find fun and innovative ways to get them to love it as much as I do.


    I enjoy sharing ideas with my colleagues at school, and participating in professional development opportunities on Twitter (@susankotch). Join me each weekend on Saturday mornings at 7:30 EST at #satchat, and on Sunday mornings at 9:00 EST at #sunchat!


    When I’m not in the classroom, you can find me out and about town in Lavallette, a seaside resort town that is home to beautiful ocean and bay beaches. The winters are quiet when the tourists go home, and the island is given back to the “locals”.


    Once the weather warms, you can find me kayaking, boating, sitting on the beach reading, swimming, strolling the boardwalk, biking around, and then grabbing a frozen custard. Sasha, my Golden Doodle, is part of the town’s Goose Patrol, keeping the fields free of geese. Believe it or not, winters bring plenty of snow to the island. We were all affected by 2012’s Hurricane Sandy.
