Genesis (Part 2)

We all know the story of Noah's Ark and, like so many other stories from the Bible, it is familiar, which I believe causes it to lose its significance. Just think about it: The Bible tells us Noah was 500 years old when he had his sons and "Noah was 600 years old when the [...]

Genesis (Part 1)

Reading through the Old Testament for the first time was like reading a novel of stories. Understanding the events of what took place but not getting out of it everything God intended because I was reading just to read (which was not a bad thing because at least I was reading). When I finished reading [...]

Even Satan Believes

I think there's a common misconception that simply believing in God will get you into heaven.

In the spirit of Valentines Day, I thought I'd write about adoption! This may sound strange at first, but Valentines Day is the day the adoption of our son became final. It is a day that has been celebrated in our house as his second birthday since he found out he was adopted in the [...]

I think anyone who has walked with God long enough has a testimony of His faithfulness. Time after time when He has shown up in our circumstances in a way that not only shapes who we are but drastically changes the trajectory of our life. As my son turned 16 on Saturday, I couldn't help [...]

Follow Christ, Not Christians

Of course we are called to save the lost and evangelism is alive, active and relevant today. However... My personal passion is not to bring some unknown revelation to lost souls who have never heard of God or Jesus because that's unrealistic in our day and age (not to say that need doesn't exist on [...]


I am currently reading Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis and chapter 6 talks about why people give up on their dreams. This got me thinking about my dreams. Not only have I have not accomplished them but I'm not even making progress. One of my largest dreams is to be a public speaker [...]
