A Perspective That Changes Everything

So much of life is about perspective and the lens in which we view life. I was telling some students at Union the other day about my ideas on parenting and how I think every parent, no matter how many children they have at one time, should bring home one “extra” for a week. Because […]

The Unwanted Gift

I’m single again and I don’t want to be. But we don’t always get what we want in life.  And It’s not about getting what we want, it’s about using what we get. When I was single before, it would have been easy to get stuck. Stuck on what I didn’t have. Stuck on what […]

Are We Just Wasting Our Time?

I will never forget getting my first research paper back in seminary. It was my third semester and I had really been struggling.

Making the Most of the Moment Part 3

 “Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.” James 4:14, NASB I have previously shared about how my unknown future brings about an urgency to live life with purpose.
