Wrinkle-free days usually don’t create great faith, because we don’t know what we actually believe until what we claim to believe is tested. Those unexpected things life throws our way can end up being pivotal circumstances in our faith journeys.

There is no progress without discipline. And many times, what begins as an "ought to" becomes a "want to."

Sometimes it seems God drops someone into our lives at just the right time. The defining moments and seasons of our lives usually revolve around those providential relationships.
March 20, 2022
Nothing causes us to depend on God more than pushing through our inadequacies to help other people. When we serve in a ministry we take personally, we experience God's power and faithfulness.

It’s one thing to believe and enjoy practical teaching. But gaining knowledge is not enough to grow our faith —applying it is.

There's a question you can ask yourself that will bring inescapable clarity to just about every relational decision you'll bump up against. But a word of warning: it's not for the faint of heart.
February 13, 2022
It's human nature to snuggle up to the edge of irresponsibility or disaster and stay there as long as possible. But instead of wondering how close we can get before crossing the line, we need to ask ourselves perhaps the most important question we can ever ask.
February 6, 2022
Sometimes an option we're considering creates tension inside of us. When that happens, it can be tempting to ignore the discomfort or brush by it. But instead of doing that, we need to pay close attention to it.

Your life is more than random, disconnected events. It's a story being written. Whether it's a thoughtful response or an emotionally fueled reaction, we write the stories of our lives one decision at a time.

The easiest person to deceive is the person in the mirror. But when we do the hard work of being honest with ourselves, we're on our way to not selling ourselves on a potential regret.

If the Christmas story is a myth, our hope may be in vain. But if Luke, the author who documented the birth of Jesus, is telling us the truth...then we have something to celebrate.
December 5, 2021
Do you remember as a child what it was like enduring those days before Christmas? It was the anticipation that made Christmas, Christmas. That same dynamic is what made the first Christmas so extraordinary. For generations, men and women had been waiting anxiously for the birth of their Messiah, with no assurance that they would live to see him. And like us, they probably wondered, Is this really going to happen? After all, God has been silent for years. Has he forgotten about us? Do you have those same doubts? Do you feel like God even knows you exist? Do you wonder if it’s worth it to follow Christ?

No one aims to live an average life. When we were younger, we all aspired to live extraordinary lives. But somewhere along the way, we settled. Jesus calls us to action because only by acting can we become anything but average.
November 7, 2021
One of the things that can keep us from living beyond average is the tension between now and later. We’re tempted to live for the moment, to satisfy our desires instantly. But when we pursue instant gratification, the problems in our lives increase. To be anything but average, you have to learn to stop living for now and begin living for later.

We all want more. Even though we’re thankful for what we have, something inside us wants a little more from life. But we don't have to go on a Wild Goose Chase to find it. Believe it or not, there is a path that can lead us to the more we are looking for.

Technology and the use of it, while helpful, can definitely be a hot topic! People have a lot of thoughts when it comes to the use of technology. Together we are going to begin to assess our relationship with our phones and how it affects us and those around us.

We all hate to lose. But winning something significant always involves losing something less significant. If you choose to lose, it opens the door to remarkable things in following Jesus.
August 8, 2021
We love to win. But in the Gospels, Jesus introduced a counterintuitive principle: In order to win, you have to lose. Following Jesus can feel like losing. But he said that we only find life when we choose to lose and follow him.
August 1, 2021
We all believe exercise is good for us, but we don't always head to the gym or go on a run. To actually get in shape, we have to exercise. We have to get off the couch and do it. And isn't it easier when we have someone to keep us accountable? The same is true of our faith—we can only get so far on our own.
