Do You Believe This?

barley-fieldIn John 11, Jesus makes a profound statement about himself that has been quite encouraging to me lately.

Food for Building!

Food! IIce cream love food. Especially in the summer time, there is nothing like a bowl of ice cream! I know I’m blessed, really blessed. Many people have never had the opportunity to even taste ice cream.  When looking in the mirror or standing on the bathroom scales, it’s easy to see I’ve taken advantage of this blessing.

She had some tats and bracelets and necklaces. My mind began racing. What kind of woman was this? (more…)


Vacation or Godly Rest?

restToday I’m getting ready to go on vacation … a luxury that I know not everyone can afford to do. And many just can’t find the time for. I thank the Lord for this opportunity with which He has blessed me and my family. As I think about our vacation ahead, I get so excited thinking of the different activities and adventures we are going to do as a family. But the most important part of going on vacation for me is the rest from the everyday workload.  Today in my blog I want to tackle a truth that is foundational to the Christian faith: rest. (more…)


How To Be A Superhero!

SuperheroI have a confession…..I am a comic book nerd!  I love all the Marvel and D.C. Comic movies.  Our society is amazed by superhero stories.  We  love reading about people with extraordinary power who do things to help others, save the world, and fight evil.   Did you know that, as a believer in Christ, you too can become a superhero?

What’s Holding You Back?

holding

In Acts 16, we pick up the story of Paul and Silas. They had journeyed to the region of Macedonia. Skipping down to verse 25, we find Paul and Silas in jail. They are praying and singing to God. What is amazing to me, and quite convicting, is that they prayed and worshipped after… (more…)
