With 50 years of experience, we "get" that things are always changing!

Come take a look at "what's new"--or use the sidebar options to take a deeper look at areas of particular interest. In case you wonder what we think, we've dedicated a space for commentary (including guest posts). And take a look at who's been to Ambassador lately in our own version of the Greenroom!

Your Credit Card is an Idol

Credit Card Stack

“God said ‘You shall have no other gods before me,’ and your credit card is an idol.”

I clearly remember when I first heard that thought.  I found it a little hard to swallow at first.  Frankly, I can’t imagine life without the convenience of a credit card.  But as I thought about it, I actually came to understand, and agree, with that line of thinking.

It wouldn't be a proper party without the proper cake.  At Ambassador, we definitely do parties properly.  Last month for Peggy Campbell's birthday our own bake-master Jani whipped up The Coconut Cake -- one of our favorites!  We thought it was about time we shared the recipe with you.  Jani says, "We originally got this recipe from Peggy Campbell who got it from her dear friend Beth Lovcik.  I love it when good cooks pass along good recipes.  This would be a perfect dessert after your Easter dinner!"

Zachary has a rare form of epilepsy which includes grand mal seizures, autistic tendencies and severe developmental challenges. He will likely not progress beyond the mental abilities of a toddler.

While I watch my 18 year old son prepare for high school graduation, fill out job applications and enroll in college in the fall, Lisa is immersed in the paperwork of setting up Zach's conservatorship and SSI Disability.

I Still Do!

Just recently, Dennis Rainey told us about a grevious billboard that showed up in Little Rock on President's Day.  It was unfortunately the latest from the online dating site that promotes adultery.  As Dennis stated, "This is exactly the kind of attack on families plaguing our society today." And further, "doing nothing is not an option."  

So with the support of friends, family, and community leaders, FamilyLife came up with this billboard response (read the full article here).
