Loving My Real Life

Let’s Be Honest. Every one of us has wanted life to be different in some way at some point: different house, different friends, different history, different body. The list could continue and is unique for each person. As a 14-year-old, I feel the pressure to be someone I’m not every day. I want to be accepted by my peers, appreciated…

How to Study the Bible – The SOAP Method

A Rough First Outing I wish I could say that I instantly fell in love with reading the Bible. I actually found much frustration while digging into Scripture the first time.  I was a thirteen-year-old boy heading off to my first winter camp, with a youth group I had just begun attending.

Tangible Bright Redemption – Indonesia Part 2

We rounded the corner of the narrow street. Our van honked outside a large iron gate, and it creaked abrasively as it slid open. Even before our van could pull inside the gate, we heard squeals and screams of delight and anticipation, all in very bold unison, coming from the home in front of us. As our van parked a…

Hope Rising – Indonesia Trip Part 1

We walked along the beaten down and dusty, narrow path. Garbage was scattered along the way and plates of fermenting rice were set out in front of several of the cinder block and brick buildings.
