Evening Bible Camp and Other Activities

This week is the second of our two-week Evening Bible Camps, here in Los Angeles. It’s been an incredible camp so far this year. God is exceeding our expectations for this year by not only providing many children, but giving us rich, meaningful times of worship and sharing as staff. It’s a busy time of life […]

Why Does He Experience God More Than Me?

Sometimes it seems as though faith in God comes easier for some then it does for others. It puzzles me. One person readily accepts the mystery of faith and embraces the truth of God’s Word, another spends years wrestling with questions and can’t sense the presence of God. Friends, very close friends to me, struggle […]

Asking Wrong Quesitons

Some ask, “Are you willing to let God work in un-traditional ways?” But what if God chooses a traditional way to work? Are we opposed to that? Maybe we ask the wrong questions.

If You Have A Weakness, You Have A Strength

We all know our weaknesses well. Most of us probably struggle with feeling like we don’t have any strengths. This next week we’ll be starting our two-week Evening Bible Camps here in Los Angeles. Around thirty out-of-town staff generously come and bless us by helping with these camps. Before they come, we ask for two […]

What Every Great Leader Understands

I’ve been privileged to sit under a few great leaders in my lifetime. As I grow older, I long to emulate them in my leadership. One of the greatest leaders I’ve worked with is my father. All fathers are leaders, but mine has played the role of leader in several different arenas. As an employer, […]

Feeling Unfulfilled? You Can Still Make A Difference Through Your Work

It’s likely that everyone at some point in life struggles to feel fulfilled in what they’re doing. In those times, we wonder if we’re doing anything of value. Can we make a difference for Christ doing something that’s not fulfilling us? I recently ended with the book company I’ve worked for the last five years. […]

If You Can Move Beyond Reaction, You Can Make A Difference That Lasts

movebeyondreaction

Each generation wants to leave an impact on the world. My generation is no different. We see things that need changed, and want to change them. But can we make a positive difference? Will we change that which really needs changed? Or just the things we’re reacting to? As a young adult, I have youthful […]

One Thing Mom Did Well We All Should Learn

Mothers are amazing people. They don’t get near enough credit! They work so hard and do so much and barely get a “Thank you for the meal” at the end of the day. It blesses me that so many Mom’s faithfully serve their families with joy, in spite of the lack of recognition they sometimes […]

Finding God In The Change of It All

I’m not sure closing the chapters of life ever becomes easy. Sure, I look forward to closing some of them, but when they’re actually completed, I realize it was a place of familiarity and safety. In the last six years, I closed several chapters of my life. My family made a big move away from […]

Authenticity Internalized

As I look at most Christians, I see three ways we typically live our lives. I admit, I’m generalizing, but, for the most part, it’s safe to say that every believer lives one of these three ways: Being pious Being reactionary Being authentic In my post, AUTHENTIC, I draw portraits of these three kinds of […]
