Likewise, every person and their specific gifting/role are all equally important and necessary. Our lives must be connected in a way much more significant than just showing up to meetings. We must know what’s going on with each other. We need fail-safes just like the fast-food restaurant. If one person can’t teach the meeting one week – having someone else be ready, willing, and competent enough to take over is significant.
You’re a millionaire now! If an anonymous billionaire gave you a million dollars, it would be a pretty amazing gift. From that point forward, money would never be a problem for you. What a relief. Now, what if the following week he decides to buy you a car? You’d have enough respect to thank him […]
The trip to ///// was eye-opening, to say the least. God showed me things about himself that I had not seen previously. God is very big, and his presence is felt around the world. I got to witness first-hand, a miracle, and heard stories of others. I got to teach a large crowd of //////// […]

Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.

There are many lessons to learn from 1 Samuel, some of which are found in the first few chapters. While studying it to teach the first chapter, and from continuing on past where we left off in home church, I’ve found some interesting things I can’t help but write about. What’s very cool is how […]
In a conversation with a good friend recently, I mentioned how beautiful the skies have been this summer. She quickly responded, “or maybe you’re in a better place (spiritually) and you’re able to appreciate it more”. I thought that was a really insightful thought. To me it makes a ton of sense.
