A Tool for Connection or a Comparison Game?

Is it possible to have a conversation about the dangers of social media if you found this article through social media? Is that too ironic?! Let’s give it a shot anyway.

FOMO: What You Should Really Be Afraid of Missing Out On

How would you fill in this blank? “I’m self-conscious around other people because I secretly believe they think I’m ________________.”  I’ve been writing a lot about fear lately and how vital it is we act with courage in the face of fear. I believe fear stops many of us from making important decisions, embracing necessary […]

You’re Feeling Overwhelmed? It Might Not Be a Bad Thing

We go to the gym to get stretched. I know it seems like it’s the place to take selfies in the mirror these days, but that’s not the point! For the athlete and the trainer, the goal is to find the sweet spot where the muscles are stretched beyond comfort but before injury. That spot lies […]

Video: Do You Expect Resurrection Within Yourself?

  As we prepare to celebrate Easter this weekend, I re-watched a message I gave on the subject of resurrection last summer. I found several clips that I’ll be sharing here over the next few weeks. This clip comes from the section where I talked about where I have experienced resurrection in my own life (hence […]

Waiting Between Not Yet and Not Ever: A Holy Week Reflection

“Waiting is our destiny. As creatures who cannot by themselves bring about what they hope for, we wait in darkness for a flame we cannot light. We wait in fear for a happy ending we cannot write. We wait for a ‘not yet’ that feels like a ‘not ever’.” -Lewis Smedes I do not know […]
