Entering through the eye of a needle

May 10, 2019 by: Ryan Lawrence

I recently had my car totaled at no fault of my own. I was near to paying off the car and, if averages hold true, I would have had that car for another 7 or 8 years without any car payment. Another one of my friends was in a hit and run and, unfortunately, he was not ... Keep Reading

April 5, 2019 by: Kevin Burkholder

"The Self-Aware Christian" may sound like a pretty selfish title. My goal in this post will involve taking a look inside, but not in pursuit of self-absorption.  Instead, true self-awarenes should lead us to a Biblically accurate view of ourselves, an increasi... Keep Reading

"Life Between Two Gardens"

March 22, 2019 by: Julie Burkholder

Several weeks have passed since finishing up the ladies’ Bible study on Lysa Terkeurst's book, "It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way.” Lysa brought out so many truths through the disappointments and trials she was experiencing. Through the stud... Keep Reading

Husbands Empowering their Wives: Part 2

The Qualities of Spirit Filling in Ephesians When the Apostle Paul wrote to the church at Ephesus, he told them, “Do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery [meaning lack of control], but be filled with the Holy Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18). &nbs... Keep Reading

Green New Earth

March 8, 2019 by: Ryan Lawrence

We’ve been hearing a lot recently about growing environmental concerns. In the wake of greater movement to alleviate climate change the “Green New Deal” has been a topic for Republicans and Democrats to battle over.  We hear anything from, &ldqu... Keep Reading
