About Raisins & Apples

“Raisins & Apples” was started in October 2020.

God has given all of us a garden to tend to, and “Raisins & Apples” is a little piece of mine. Bits of knowledge and thoughts I learned from God’s word and through my journey with Jesus and His family are shared here. My prayer is that everyone who stops by my little garden here can taste and enjoy the sweetness of God’s word and find strength in the Lord.

It is also my honor and pleasure to welcome three awesome brothers to join me and be the guest writer on this blog since February 2022!

They are MingDaniel, and Ed. Their sermons and devotionals have been a blessing to many, including myself. I’m more than thankful to have them sharing their Bible wisdom and devotional writings here with me.
