I’m convinced we all need this kind of

The Dark Side of God’s Love

The Dark Side of God’s Love

Just ten minutes into hearing the doctor’s explanations, I could take it no longer. We were already numb from the events of the day, but hearing Carson scream in the background pushed me over the edge. While I was signing waivers just outside his newly inhabited hospital room, nurses on the second floor of St.

Gratitude Changes You

  Just look at us! We’ve become overcome with gratitude! Gratitude can’t occupy the same area of space in your heart as carping and complaining. Which will it be? The truth that emerges from the center of you, from the core of your being, is revealed to you by the One who chose you, and

The Heroic Fellowship

As John Eldredge and Brent Curtis articulated in The Sacred Romance, in John 1 we find a secret to the fabric of all creation. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. — John 1:11 In the beginning, before all time, existed the eternal heroic fellowship

What Do You Want?

What Do You Want?

Trade what is simply available for what will truly last. When I was in junior high school, I went with my parents to Hawaii. I was immediately smitten.
