September 7, 2021

Which side are you on? A dangerous question to ask in this space, don’t you think? Don’t worry. This post is not about politics or the pandemic. It’s about Christ. And that’s why we are here, right?

It’s Supposed To Be Difficult

August 3, 2021

Whether it be with a long personal suffering, a devastating betrayal from our church leaders, or a […]

IV Infusions and What Actually Helps

July 27, 2021

Are you feeling depleted—like you’re running on fumes and you still have a hill to climb? Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to be infused with exactly what you need for the week ahead? These questions remind me of a recent visit to my son in Los Angeles. We were strolling through […]
