Those Prayers He Doesn't Seem To Answer by Lisa Jackson
Have you ever been attracted to someone and prayed for God to let them share the same feelings for you, only to have it never happen? I can remember being in high school and college and thinking that if a particular guy liked me, and we would start dating, well, then everything would be good, I would have a boyfriend and someone to care about me and want to spend time with me.

Ministry is Messy! by Kris Swiatocho
A friend recently reminded me of something that I have often said: “Ministry can be very messy because ministry has people in it.” My good friend and advisor, Pastor Freddy Johnson, used to say, “Kris, I would like to find a pastor position without having to deal with people...so that it would be...well...easy!” When he would say this, we would both just laugh because that position doesn't exist. If you are going to do any kind of work where people are involved, it will be difficult at times.
New Book: Walk the Line Bible Study; Order now!
Walk the Line is an 8-week study for individuals or a group designed to help the reader determine the “fine line” between a set of words we often use. Words such as “happiness and joy”, “accountability and judgment”. Words that are spoken to mean the same thing, when in fact, are very different. Words, when broken down and discussed, will reveal the true meaning (e.g. words that are "self-focused" versus "other-focused"). This study also includes a leader's section and small group instruction. Order Now!

Summer Days by Single Parent Director Holly Crain via Guest Writer, Alessia Madkins
Life was so simple back then because by far the best part of my summer was being allowed to go barefoot outside! And that was great but it also meant that we could play in the garden hose, lay in the grass and watch the clouds go by and catch lightening bugs in mason jars. Such simple things which makes me wonder how life got so complicated.. Read More
