You’ll Get Through This

You'll get through this

The news coming out of Moore, Oklahoma is heart breaking. The latest report estimates over 20 people have been killed, at least 9 are children.

As the debris settle from the tornado that has uprooted hundreds, so too does the shock and grief and utter disbelief and hopelessness over the community's losses.

Some are thinking, "How can this be happening? Where is God?"

"How will I ever get through this?"

When we go through tragedy, how can we hold onto the promises of God?

This is something that Max Lucado is going to be unpacking in the coming months ...

Preparing Your Student for College

It's graduation season and a time for celebration, but if you have a high schooler heading off to college, some parents wonder if their child is prepared for what's ahead--a potentially hostile environment that will challenge their Christian faith.

We've all heard the statistics that far too many students raised in Christian homes and churches abandon the church as young adults, largely due to the outside influences and ideas presented to them while away at college.

Gosnell -- The Face of Abortion in America

I'm having lunch today with a friend -- my first time being with her since she became a new mommy.  After 6 years of trying to conceive, she and her husband adopted a baby boy 4 months ago.
