Do you crave destiny? (Part 1)

Do you crave destiny? Have you experienced failure in the last month? The last week? Today? Sometimes you know deep down God has something amazing He wants to do in your life ... but it still seems elusive. Your life seems to lack destiny ... and aimlessness can sometimes lead to apathy and lack of purpose. But you were not made for these things;...

Having a Baby Without Losing Your Faith

“After the baby came, I haven’t had time to pray, read the Bible, journal, go to church, or attend small group.  In fact, I barely have enough time to shower, let alone think about God!” For most new parents, this is a common sentiment.  And along with these thoughts comes a feeling of guilt.  ”I know I should make God a priority,...

Finding Peace and Freedom

If I asked you to describe yourself, what would you say? Would you tell me your job title or refer to your relationships – husband, wife, son, daughter, friend? Would you talk about your successes, or failures, your dreams or your past? These are parts of who you are, but you are more than what you do or where you live. You are a human being...
