The One

Last week, I received news one of my former personal training clients went to be with Jesus. She was a college student, and I trained her when she was in high school. Jordan was very introspective & inquisitive. Our PT sessions were often as mentally intensive as they were physically intensive. One day, Jordan sent […]

Steady My Heart

Evening was here, and the lights in the room were off to beckon sleep, but the lights and sounds from the hallway streamed through the curtain separating our room from the screech-screech-screech of nurses’ shoes and code blues on the ICU floor.  My sister was nestled beside me in a recliner and I on the foldout couch.

"They’ll Never Love You Like I Can"

Have you ever listened to a popular song on the radio that just really hits you? Its meaning is deeper than even the artist really understands and it just speaks to your soul and spirit? That’s what I’ve been feeling lately through Sam’s Smith new song “Like I Can” Why are you looking down all […]

A Tale of Stained Hands

Once there was a girl. One day, she sinned. But it was only a little sin. Yet, she noticed that after she sinned, she ended up with a drop of red that stained the skin of her hands. The next time she sinned, another small drop of red stained her skin. And another. And another. […]

How Much of Jesus Do We Want?

This past Sunday I got to share the Lord’s Supper with my church family. I always enjoy this time, but there was something different about this one. Instead of quiet contemplation and examination, I was more distracted by my oldest daughter’s presence. I was keenly aware of her movements and especially her questions. I decided […]

Good Friday Reflections

In the beginning was the Word. And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:1,14) In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son […]

The Futility of A False Religion

Over Spring Break I had the opportunity to visit a country in South Asia, a country brimming with kind people, a rich history, and many beautiful cultural traditions. However, during the trip, I got to observe men and women practicing Hinduism, and I was struck by the absolute futility of it. My heart broke for […]

Why We Go

[Editor’s Note: The following post is from a journal entry after a recent return trip to India, where Kennedy had served for two years.] Six years ago, I moved to South Asia. This week I returned. From the day I left to the day I returned, almost four years had passed. A lot had changed. […]

Let the Matchmaking Begin!

Who doesn’t enjoy a good love story? When it comes to love stories, I have a few rules. First of all, the boy and the girl have to get together in the end. Secondly, no one can die in my love stories. I have been known to turn off a movie just before tragedy strikes […]

Hope from a Stump

Hope from a Stump

Last spring, we noticed something odd growing in the middle of our crape myrtle tree. This particular tree is on the side of our house where we hardly ever play or walk, so we hadn’t paid much attention to it in the 6 months we had lived here. If you know crape myrtles, you know […]
