Don’t forget me

  Have you ever listened to someone explain why they started a ministry or became involved in a particular cause? Often times tragedy triggers people  into action, but what about love? Since there’s so much tragedy in our world — how many times do you hear someone say that Christ’s love touched their heart in […]

Once Upon a Time…

Do you ever look back at your high school days? I don’t often, but earlier today something made me think back to my freshman year. It was my favorite year in school because everything was new. I was anxious the summer before, but I looked forward to going to a new school — mostly, I […]

Home, Sweet Home

We are back in Indiana – the state we’ve lived in since we were born — with the exception of the last 3 years when we lived in Florida. I don’t even know where to begin…. I cannot believe how much life has changed for us. We’ve been “home” for 5 weeks, however, last night […]

God’s Word Says it All

Just think how different our world would be if we all made the effort to live out this: ” Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving […]

The Word

Many years ago, two of our three sons were in a heated argument. Sometimes we would just let them work it out without intervening, but this time we heard language that we didn’t allow, so we brought them into a room where they were told to sit. Because we weren’t sure which one said ‘the […]
