How To Stay Encouraged While Sharing the Gospel

Posted on Sep 25, 2012

God bless Sunday school teachers! The truth is it’s hard to get through to some people whether they’re three or eighty-three. We get frustrated feeling like we never get anywhere no matter how many times we try to explain God’s truth’s to them. It’s tempting to give up and spend our time teaching more promising students, but the story of Zacchaeus has a lesson for everyone.

Building a Solid Foundation

Posted on Sep 12, 2012

Most of us are guilty of trying to buy security in one way or another. We buy insurance plans for all the “just in case” scenarios; we set money aside to make sure we’re taken care of in the future; we work hard to make enough money so we don’t have to worry—ever. And though we’ve all heard that money doesn’t buy happiness, it’s hard to really believe. In reality, sometimes it’s just easier to trust our paycheck than it is to depend on God.

Leaving an Eternal Impact

Posted on Sep 4, 2012

Like Dennis, we are all broken in some ways. No matter how put together we may seem on the surface no one goes through life without experiencing pain, loneliness, and a sense of longing for love and acceptance. We can’t take away people’s problems but we can point them to the one “who delivers your life from the Pit, who crowns you with his loyal love and compassion, who satisfies your life with good things, so your youth is renewed like an eagle’s” (Ps 103:4-5).

Meet the Skitzy Chicks

Carrie Varnell and Melinda Whitten are the Skitzy Chicks. They met and became fast friends nine years ago while pregnant with their last children. We have had the pleasure of working with the Skitzy Chicks over the years through performances, video and script collaboration.

Be Bold: Serve with Humility

Posted on Aug 27, 2012

Sometimes good intentions backfire. No matter what they say, after the age of about six it’s not just the thought that counts. Enthusiasm reads pushy, boldness is seen as aggressive, and Christian metaphors sound weird to people who have no context for them.

Secrets, Lies and Cover-Ups: The Art of Confession

Posted on Aug 22, 2012

Secrets, lies, cover-up, scandal—all the makings of a great drama. And if only it were as simple as double dipping. But the secrets we carry so often have far greater consequences than cross contaminating party condiments.

Quench Your Thirst

Posted on Aug 13, 2012

It’s August. It’s hot. And it seems like water is on everyone’s mind. We want to drink it loaded with ice, swim in it to refresh and cool off, and attach it to a fan to mist us if we’re insane enough to sit outside. Even the plants cry out for water as they start to wilt in the afternoon sun. Water is a precious resource—no organism can live without some form of it.

The Ten Commandments Revisited

Posted on Aug 8, 2012

The Ten Commandments weren’t put in place to make us perfect; they were to show us we need a Savior. These aren’t just rules that we have to obey, but a mirror to show us we can’t obey. No matter how hard we try, we can’t keep God’s law perfectly. Maybe we haven’t actually killed someone or stolen anything, but all of us have broken God’s law at some point if not daily.

How To Show Mercy

Posted on Jul 30, 2012

An apology doesn’t make everything okay. It doesn’t take away the sting of betrayal, mend a broken heart, or instantaneously re-establish trust. But it’s a start. In the same way, forgiving someone isn’t saying everything is okay. It doesn’t turn back the clock or numb our emotions. But it’s the beginning of God’s work in and through us.

Comfort In A Season Of Mourning

Posted on Jul 23, 2012

Grief is a lonely place. It’s can be tempting to shut people out and try to deal with it on our own, but God created us for relationships—family, spouses, friendships, mentors, and so on. We were born to do life with him and others. What sweeter comfort than a friend who willingly sits with us.

Understanding God's Love

Posted on Jul 17, 2012

God loves you. Maybe that’s hard for you to believe when you stop and think about it. Or maybe you’ve heard it so many times it doesn’t have much effect on you anymore. But God’s love is unlike anything this world can offer. When we begin to understand how big God is, how small we are, and how much he loves, our lives are radically transformed.
