It was good for me to be with those serving our communities and to interact with them a bi...

Missing Limb - Reflections On Our Mutual Need For One Another In The Body of Christ


Throughout the week I was thinking through some tough parenting things, and also watching others go through similar struggles, and I realized that we make life much harder than it needs to be. How? Why would we, why would I do that? Life is already hard enough. You see it was made harder, because I wasn't reaching out. I was choosing to stay in my struggle alone. Here I a...

Grow! A Transformed Life


Grow! A Transformed Life Spring is here! The trees are blossoming and my four year old is excitedly picking me beautiful wildflower "presents", as he calls them. I sit in awe of our wonderful God who made the seasons. Seasons which come and go, ever-changing, much like our lives. Yet He remains the same and is ever-faithful.

Untitled design (1)

Have you ever been loved well by another brother or sister in Christ? My guess is that all of us can say yes. For me that would be a resounding yes!
