Who Is the Next Chuck Colson?

Well, see what Eric Metaxas shares on today's BreakPoint® for the answer . . .

"Is Eric Metaxas the Next Chuck Colson?"  That was the jarring Washington Post headline a couple of days ago.  At least it was jarring to me, because the simple answer is an emphatic NO.  But a more nuanced answer would be a very qualified "yes," but I'll get to that in a minute.

The author of the article, Sarah Pulliam Bailey of Religion News Service, interviewed me last month.  We had a great conversation.  I wasn't tickled that she mentioned a vicious review of my ...

Who Inspires You?

It's back to school time and I've been recalling my own school days.

We all remember a favorite teacher who made a difference in our lives - mine was a high school English teacher, Mr. Mullen.  He taught me an appreciation for classic literary works - from Grapes of Wrath to The Glass Menagerie.  He inspired me to dig deep into the books and consider what Steinbeck and Williams were truly saying in their writings.

Mr. Mullen ended up being one of my greatest cheerleaders encouraging me to "think big" when applying to colleges.  

In a recent interview, Joni Eareckson ...

Running the Race

It's been quite a while since I was a school kid, yet I still look forward to September as a time for a fresh start. 

Even now, the back to school season nudges me to seek a little something new in my life, like this summer when I ran in my first 10k and discovered-to my surprise-that I could run 6.2 miles (it wasn't pretty, but I did it).

Then there are the "fresh starts" of far greater significance - like deepening our spiritual walk so that we may run the race He has set before us.

In the Huddle with My Husband

Today is August 1st and you may be wondering why it's a significant day.  It could mean many things, but for our family and many families around the country, it's the first day of practice for youth football.  We are a football (and baseball!) family, but my husband's favorite sport to play and to coach is . . . football.  Just the smell of fresh-cut grass on a field is enough to get him excited!

I love football too, but when you're married to a coach, I sometimes feel like a "football widow" since the month of August ...
