Bloom Where You're Planted

There's a familiar phrase that says, "Bloom where you're planted."  I think of this when I watch programs that showcase talent, or attend a concert, or at church when I see people using their God-given talents in leading worship.  I don't know about you, but it's an experience that gives me goose bumps!

As a parent, I've enjoyed watching my kids discover and use their talents.  I find myself constantly encouraging them to "be the best YOU that only you can be!"  I think that's what God desires for each of us.  So why ...

Life and Social Media

It's back to school time and for some of us, that means kids going away to college.

A friend just left her son at Biola.  She signed up for a Biola Twitter feed and liked a Facebook page for parents of Biola students.  Another friend learned of an app which Cal Berkeley offers to students and their families that will help when they move their child into the dorms.
