Who’s In Charge, Here?

As the COVID19 pandemic continues on, people around the world are struggling with the restrictions set in place by their governments to stop the spread. Much of our anxiety is rooted in the fact that the situation is far outside of our control. This cuts to the heart of humanity; our trials remind us that... Continue Reading →

Trying to keep a right attitude in these uncertain times is a challenge. I am sure I am not the only one battling anxiety, these days. Being a Christian isn’t about being optimistic or pessimistic, it is about living with hope. Christians live with hope, not because we think everything will always be rosy, but... Continue Reading →

How Do I Love Thee?

Putting My Time Where My Mouth Is
