Every Life is A Blessing

My friend Lisa's son, Zachary just celebrated his 18th birthday . . . though he doesn't know it.

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.

Lisa carries a huge responsibility on her shoulders taking care of Zach -- from the ...

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).   


As you can see, it's the same message the ministry has been communicating for decades as they continue their mission ...

True Woman '14

Revive Our Hearts will host the next True Woman '14 Conference in Indianapolis October 9-11.  While the event is still six months away, the staff is busily preparing for women to come together to seek Christ wholeheartedly.

The Best Celebration of Easter

It's been said that "everyone has a story." 

Even one of my favorite coffees has a story. Printed on the side of their coffee bean bag is The Tully's Story: "Some professionals need to approach their jobs slowly and with a great deal of care.  Like  tightrope walkers.  Or brain surgeons.  At Tully's, the same holds true for creating great coffee.  It takes a lot of time and patience, which is why we roast our coffee beans to gently coax out the complex flavors and aromas."

The "story" goes on but honestly, it's rather dull (even ...

National Volunteer Week

A couple of weeks ago, I heard a message from one of the people who inspire Joni Eareckson Tada.

As Joni says about Paige Benton Brown, she is a "deep thinker... she loves God and His Word . . . and never ceases to amaze me with her fresh insights into familiar biblical passages."

The message Paige shared is fresh in my mind as this week's "Joni and Friends®" programming marks National Volunteer Week.

As Paige recounted the story of the master, his three servants and the talents he entrusts to them, I heard the parable in a different light.  Yes, it ...
