The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Or maybe not.  I am not the the first to blog about the difficulty of the holiday season.  Some people are saddened about who or what they have lost or what they never even had.  It is easy to think that everyone is having more fun than you especially if you compare social media post. […]

“O Lord, I pray, deliver my soul!” by Kendra

“O Lord, I pray, deliver my soul!” Oh! What an emotional roller coaster.  Two weeks ago, I thought we might be looking for a new job for my husband, but now, we are planning to stay. A dear friend of mine challenged me to focus on the truth of Jesus and not my situation. When […]

Haircut Turned Therapy Session by Amy

Once upon a time yesterday, Amy wanted to get a haircut: nothing dramatic, just past time for a trim. She searched around on the internet, hoping to find a new “regular” place to go to often and get to know the people there. A salon was selected, an appointment was made, and she drove off […]

When God doesn’t give the answers…

I (Kendra) know that Jesus wants me to trust Him.  He wants me to come to Him with my wants and desires, and He wants me to be confident that He is redeeming the world. I struggle.  I know that God is at work, but the redemption process can be uncomfortable and even painful.  Often, […]

“Yes, I’ll have a youth ministry, with fries on the side.”

Jesus Himself went to where the sinners were. He said the well and healthy don’t need a doctor, the sick do. (Mark 2:17).
