“...the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few,” Matthew 9:37 (NIV). This verse is one of the most memorable in the Bible for me, but what does it mean to you?

During the past two years, Lisa and I have spent a lot of time in the Riverdale neighborhood—engaging, serving, and sharing the gospel. We’ve battled bedbugs, loneliness, and discouragement, but by God’s grace we've gotten to know so many neighbors from many nations, have shared the gospel several times, which led to three salvations!...
In the early hours of Sunday morning, June 12, a horrific act of violence took place at a night club in Orlando, Florida.

Dear Parents, It seems that one of the most popular things parents say underneath those adorably cute pictures of their kids on social media is something along the lines of "You are my reason." These parents have a good heart toward their kids. They love them, probably more than they love themselves. They'd be willing to die for their kids (as most of us would out of o...Keep Reading
Dear Parents, It's tempting to think that if we do all the right things, our kids will turn out "just right." They will love and serve the Lord and be successful, safe, and happy, too! #Goals. Right? But there is no one right way to parent; there is no formula that will guarantee such an end goal for our kids; focusing on their earthly joy and success "amounts to nothing...Keep Reading

Hi, Parents! This week I felt led to share something I wrote up 3 years ago -- 9 months after I lost my daughter (and a snippet from a post 12 months after I lost her.) When I wrote it, I was in the throes of the grief journey. My hope as you read it is that 1) you will be reminded of God's goodness, in the midst of whatever situations you find yourself in this week, and ...Keep Reading
Hey, Parents! When I was in college, my family went on a trip to the Bahamas. While it was a super fun trip, the thing that I will never forget is the feeling I had when I looked out at that clear, blue-green ocean water for the first time. I'd never seen anything like it before. I literally had no words (and that's rare for a person like me). I was awestruck-- totally me...Keep Reading

Our memories are so powerful. They have the ability to affect our feelings, behaviors, and our perception of ourselves and our world. They enable us to build relationships with others and help shape our desires and affections. But our natural tendency as humans is toward forgetfulness. No wonder remembering is a central theme in Scripture! It's also a crucial part of answe...Keep Reading

Hey, Parents! We've been talking a lot about family worship lately, which is really just regularly setting aside a time to teach our kids about and worship God together as a family. But why are we so gung ho about family worship? The Why I love how Psalm 78 puts it. In verses 5-7 we read, He [God] decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, wh...Keep Reading
Dear Parents, Ezekiel had a tough job: ministering to people who had rejected God and suffered the consequences. The exiled people of Judah were eager to blame God for their circumstances. "It's not fair!" they argued. (See Ezek. 18:25.) Ezekiel told the people that they were at fault for their exile; their faithlessness had provoked God's wrath. The people were ge...Keep Reading

Dear Parents, This week we pick up just a few days after the triumphal entry when the same crowd that chanted "hosanna" to Jesus now chanted "crucify Him." Jesus was betrayed by Judas, arrested, condemned, and crucified. After He died, Jesus was placed in a tomb, but on the third day, He rose again conquering death and providing life to those who believe. The cruci...Keep Reading

God also sent Hosea to bring a message of lovea love that never gives up. (See Hos. 11:7-9.) To get the message across to the Israelites, God used Hosea's own life ...Keep Reading
