And So It Begins….Thanksgiving

I am sitting here, the Sunday before Thanksgiving, looking at one of our favorite weeks of the year, the week in preparation for Thanksgiving.  We could have as many as 30 people in our home, from every walk of life.  Some celebrating, some grieving, some doing both. ...

Marriage is Anything But Common

Marriage is anything but common.  Two uniquely different people coming together to spend life together can bring many trials, many tribulations into life.  But it can also bring much joy, even in the common, every day things of life. God designed marriage to bring...

Old fashioned vs seedless watermelons

Who's with me on this one?  Seeded watermelon, the old fashioned kind, you know the ones with the seeds that you could spit across the yard (or at your siblings) just taste better.  I'm not sure what it is, but it tastes sweeter, looks better, and it is just more...

The End Game

Last night the Kansas City Royals (WOO HOO) played the Los Angeles Angels (UGH!).  By the way, no bias in this post at all.  The Royals were behind by 2, and it was the bottom of the 7th inning.  They had a guy on first and a guy on 2nd.  There was a brand new player...

Coons in the Corn

It's all about the Gospel. As we've grown to realize the fullness of what Christ did for us, we've peeled off the "Christians should be perfect" mask and owned our sin nature. This process has led us to serve one another in grace and joy. It has brought us to a place of delight. In sharing our journey, we desire that our discovery can encourage you to realize the fullness of the Gospel as well, and that it will also help you serve one another in your home!
