How to Take Steps Toward One Another

July 2, 2015

How to Take Steps Toward One Another This summer, my wife Hannah and I will celebrate our 12-year anniversary. The longer we are together and the busier life gets with work, kids, family, friends and everything else, I’m discovering how important it is for us to intentionally take steps toward each other. The steps don’t have to be huge, but consistently taking [...]

July 1, 2015

When You Are Seeking Love “Then Leah said, ‘God has presented me with a precious gift. This time my husband will treat me with honor, because I have borne him six sons.’ So she named him Zebulun.” -Genesis 30:20 (NIV) I have had the privilege of having coffee with a few women who trusted me enough to share their hurts.

Law of Love

June 30, 2015

Law of Love Sometimes life can seem so complicated. But what if you knew God had already given you a twofold guiding ethical principle that you can apply to in every situation? Today's message from Randy Alcorn is foundational for the Christian life.  In Leviticus 19 the people of Israel are told to make provision for the poor and [...]

That Voice of Shame

June 29, 2015

That Voice of Shame Last week I strolled through the grocery store checkout line and my eyes were drawn to a magazine designed to make every woman in America feel guilty. You know the kind. It’s one with the super model on the cover looking like she was dipped in bronze. Her white teeth, hair, and perfect body make [...]

Are You Chasing the Wind?

Are You Chasing the Wind? Society often tells us that more money equals more happiness, but what does Scripture have to say about it? Check out today's thoughts from Randy Alcorn.

Those Bad Words

June 25, 2015

Those Bad Words We tend to focus on a list of words that are “bad,” but what if God intends to have control of our hearts and direct every word that comes out of our mouth? We can stay away from certain forbidden words and still have a dirty mouth. Some families forbid “darns” and “butts” while some [...]

He’s Working in Your Waiting

June 24, 2015

He’s Working in Your Waiting What do you do when you receive a bad report from the doctor? What do you do when the wayward child you have prayed diligently for has a hardened heart toward God, or when the bills are piling up and the only hope you have is another interview with little chance of getting the job? [...]

Your Cubicle Can Be Your Mission Field

June 23, 2015

Your Cubicle Can Be Your Mission Field If you have a full-time job, chances are good that you spend around one third of every weekday enclosed in an office or cubicle. That’s a huge part of your day! When you consider that roughly another third of your day is spent sleeping, it doesn’t leave much time for everything else in your life. [...]

God’s Plan for Financial Peace

June 22, 2015

God’s Plan for Financial Peace Before my wife and I married, people warned us that the first year of marriage could be tough. Even though Hannah and I tried to prepare ourselves, we still weren’t ready for the challenges—including the financial ones—that came after we said, “I do.” One month after we married, we moved halfway across the country from [...]

Everyone Has a Mission

June 19, 2015

Everyone Has a Mission As little children we believe we are designed for a unique mission. Why else would you strap on a cape and jump off your parents’ roof? What else would make you believe you can save every kitten in the neighborhood by setting up a cardboard booth on the street corner and find new feline owners? [...]
