I love stories. One of my favorite things in stories is when something small or subtle solves a big problem. There is nothing quite like the moment I realize something I’ve underestimated or forgotten about saves the day. I am a big fan of those twists and I got the unique pleasure of experiencing them during my recovery process. Before I go on, I’ll give a little more context to make sure we’re all on the same page. It’s easy…

A friend of mine made great point maybe a month ago. We were standing on his lawn when he commented about feeding his heart what it can’t have. His comment was directed at how we compare ourselves with those around us. This comparison tends to isolate and elevate the things we don’t have.

For many, the beginning of a new year is about change and resolutions. I encourage you to pursue more than resolutions though. It’s possible to alter our behavior and not experience the healing and satisfaction our hearts desire. We must seek the face of our Father to find such things.

I experienced one of them while I was in Ethiopia and God delivered me from my discouragement and despair in dramatic fashion. It all started with the plane ride. My body does not enjoy traveling on long plane rides and I don’t sleep well on…

Hey Everybody, In about a week, I’ll be on a plane headed for Ethiopia. I’m going with the organization e3 Partners to evangelize to those who don’t have Jesus in their life. I’m excited about this incredible opportunity and looking forward to stepping foot on that plane. I’ve been training once a month since last November and working on quite a few things. Our team has trained how to use the evangicube, give our testimony, and discuss the differences between…
