Waking Up to God’s Goodness Around You

Waking Up to God’s Goodness Around You

When my doorbell rang last August, Michelle was the last person I expected to be waiting on the other side. I’d only met her a few times in the four years we had lived on the same street, and none of those times had been particularly noteworthy. I made an effort in the beginning, dropping

The Gift of Friendship

Everything is Better with a Friend

Does your family create a summer bucket list? My kids gave me a long list of things they want to do once school gets out. It includes going to the zoo, the park, museums, and the beach. They would like to make crafts, host play dates, and have sleepovers with their friends. These activities all
