His Wisdom for Her World

Jesus

Before we can begin to see the cross as something done for us, we have to see it as something done by us.

Before we can begin to see the cross as something done for us, we have to see it as something done by us.

Before we can begin to see the cross as something done for us (leading us to faith and worship), we have to see it as something done by us (leading us to repentance). Indeed, “only the man who is prepared to own his share in the guilt of the cross,” wrote Canon Peter Green, “may claim […]

A New Creation – Life Lessons from Butterflies

Last month was my oldest daughter’s birthday. My sister-in-love, a preschool teacher, decided to forgo the usual gifts of princesses, baby dolls, or crafts, and instead get Makaylan a Live Butterfly Adventure. A few days later we received a package with six tiny caterpillars inside. I, for the first time, was able to obverse – […]

How the Chains of Grief Break the Bondage of the Heart

I lost my mom in February of last year. It made for a complex 2015, with many lessons I didn’t want to learn and much sanctification I didn’t anticipate. They say hindsight is 20/20 and I really do believe it’s true. As I look back at 2015 and forward into 2016, I see how strong […]

Is Door-To-Door Evangelism Worth It?

Is Door-To-Door Evangelism Worth It?

The first time I ever went door-to-door to share the gospel with people, I was quite nervous and filled with doubt that this type of witnessing would even work. As a matter of fact, the only reason I was going out was because it was a class requirement. Some of you may wonder if people […]

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"

"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?

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 […]
