Perfect Peace

Posting this today simply because I need the reminder. I have a choice when I watch the news: fear or Peace. I have a choice when I see the condition of our world: fear or Peace. I have a choice when I think of my children's futures: fear or Peace. I have a choice when

The Red Words

Have you ever heard a word from God spoken from the mouth of a child? It is a really powerful and beautiful experience. Yesterday, I was teaching a three-year-old Bible study class. We were talking about the Bible. As a visual I showed them both a children’s Bible and my big Bible. I showed them

About My Work

This blog serves as an online journal of sorts. It is where I go to process my thoughts and feelings. It is where I write about what it means to shine the light of Jesus in an ever darkening world.
