“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” Matthew 5:9 (ESV) Followers of Jesus are especially affected by and dependent on relationships with one another. Our adoption as children of God automatically grafts us into the network of horizontal connections known as the body of Christ, the church (see John 15).

People give me a hard time because I have friends all over the place. I don’t say that to make myself sound awesome, but just to say that I have a broad group of friends. I’ve lived in six states and I have been so blessed to have amazing friends in each of the places I’ve lived, but my greatest challenge right now is distance. My best friend Jennifer had her second baby earlier this year and I … [Read more...]

Luke told him about this opportunity and asked if we would pay both of them to pull weeds. We … [Read more...]

It's confession time. I didn't go to the gym this morning. It wasn't because I suddenly decided that working out was no longer beneficial, nor was it because I had something else pressing that I had to do. I didn't go because I didn't feel like going. And such is life. Most of us live in a "feelings driven" culture. We eat, work on, and participate in that which we feel like; and we don't … [Read more...]

We recently taught a parenting seminar and had teenagers help us with the question-and-answer panel at the end. One girl commented on the questions the parents asked: “We actually had more questions on technology than we did on talking to your kids about sex? What’s up with that?” Typically, we have a plethora of questions about talking to your children about puberty and sex. This week, there … [Read more...]

Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. —1 Peter 5:8 As moms, we have a very real enemy, and it’s not our 2-year-old eating sugar in the pantry, or our husband who may or may not be doing his fair share. It’s Satan. He wants you to be exhausted and overwhelmed. He wants to discourage you with circumstances. He wants to find you tired and weak so … [Read more...]
