Earthly Loss and Eternal Hope

I clearly remember a time in my late twenties when I was driving with the windows rolled down and had the music blasting as I drove the back roads.  I felt immortal and pretty comfortable with life.  At that time we had a sweet family of four and really, the hardest thing for me that I had walked through at…

Trusting God

“Trust me. I promise.” How many times have I heard, or even uttered this phrase? Why is it we have to convince someone to trust us, or, why do we need to be convinced? Trust is easily broken and hard to win back. Why? I believe, trust is evidence based. We choose to trust based on what we have experienced….

Little by Little

Ugh. It was the worst. There were small…

Making the Ordinary Extraordinary

I was born on a Thursday morning, bundled up into my mother’s arms and taken to church that very Sunday.  I was passed down the row to my grandmother, passed back to my aunt, and in every way I grew up in the hallowed halls and pews of our local church.  I sat next to my grandmother on the bench…

Healing the Church

Some students came forward. All youth group age. The church body is broken. The church is a mix of all types of people. Young, old and in between. Single, married, divorced, widowed, it’s complicated and so on. It’s also full of people striving to follow Christ and live out the ways in which He has commanded us to live. And…
