A long time ago… In the middle east, a man named Jesus, the Son of God, came to save, not condemn the world by inviting all people to a relationship with Him and the Father. A real, active, alive relationship. He came at a time when religion had taken over any kind of relationship with […]

Red’s encounter with Andy is life-changing, life-saving really. Andy, who was wrongly convicted, escapes prison and tells Red that if and when […]

Once upon a time, I sat next to a girl in a class in which the desks were two-person desks. Often the teacher would go around the room and randomly ask quiz-type questions of students. And often when the girl I sat next to would hesitate or seem to be stuck, I would lean closer […]

I never thought I was that kind of person… The kind of person that needed to learn how to appreciate things. I’ve always tried to be purposefully thankful for everything. Or so I thought. But the last week has reminded me of what is truly treasured. It started with being in my hometown, a place […]

How are you going to make it through today? Really? Is it the cup of coffee or glass of wine? Is it by judging and blaming others? Is it watching television? Is it escaping situations and people? How about escaping through drugs or the internet? Is it the dream vacation? Growing up, we didn’t have […]

Maybe it’s because I have reached my limit.
