Overwhelmed kid

Most everyone I’ve talked with lately feels overwhelmed by something. In some cases, it’s an ill-defined stress of some sort; however, most others can actually name the reason. Read more »


I just enjoyed a luscious orange. Actually three of them! With each one, I found myself thanking God for the gift of sweet oranges in the wintertime. I never get over that simple pleasure and that’s just one. My life is full of them. Read more »

How's your soul?

I triple dog dare you

Someone said, “Become an accepting person, and you will have a long line of people at your door!” Everyone longs for acceptance. It’s true of middle school kids, mega-church pastors and even muscle-bound NFL linemen. There are no exceptions when it comes to the drive for acceptance. Read more »

Don't forget to remember

I just read of a man and woman with amazing capacity. Scientists say they have a “superior autobiographical memory.” Each of them can recall trifling details of their lives for the last few decades.

I’ve been deep in the mud and the mire and I’m not alone. The great Colorado flood detoured rivers, destroyed roads, collapsed bridges, devastated businesses, invaded homes and overwhelmed hearts. While our house was untouched, others around us have experienced disaster. Read more »

"We were able to spend a week at Blessing Ranch Ministries. It was an amazing week! . . . . We learned SO much during this week.

Missionary, Dominican Republic
