I was so blessed to talk to Barbara Reaoch on today’s episode. Barbara’s passion to serve Christ is so apparent and she has dedicated her ministry to equip parents, grandparents, and teachers to present Biblical truth to children.
As Christians, how do we balance genuine love for others with the truths we find so clearly in scripture? To what extent can we righteously ‘tolerate’ sin around us without being lured into its intended destruction? Has the secular redefinition of tolerance–and many other hot-button words–fundamentally changed the way Biblical Christianity is viewed by our culture?
No matter how much we love our kids and long for them to serve the Lord, the devil will mercilessly assault their faith with questions and fear. He desires nothing more than to see the faith of the next generation crumble under worldly uncertainty and secular reasoning. Without a firm foundation in the truth, their faith will falter and they will stray from the Lord.
It’s easy to wear a mask to hide our brokenness, but it’s OK to not be OK.
In today’s episode, I had the opportunity to speak to Alistair Chalmers (Chalmers’ Blog), an assistant pastor in Scotland who is just as broken as you and I. He has chosen to use his struggle with depression and suicide to encourage others.
New year’s resolutions can sometimes become cliché–rehashing the same generic goals each year. Today, I share 11 intentional questions that will help guide your new years reset to focus on what really matters.
When I feel that I am out of my comfort zone, then I have a God-given chance to grow. Are you experiencing discomfort in some area of your life today? As tough as it seems, it’s probably the perfect place for you to grow in your walk with the Lord.
Obviously, Christmas music has been playing nonstop since November. Obviously. But, I was struck last week by how little I dwell on some of these theologically rich songs. I enjoy the music, and I can sing right along with it without truly considering the lyrics and the message.
In today’s episode, I take a few minutes to dig deeper into my all-time favorite Christmas song–‘O Holy Night’.
I’ve been married for 11 years and have three kids–the oldest of which is nine years old. I feel far removed from singleness. Though I know a lot of singles, I’m always hesitant to reach out and build a relationship. I convince myself that my crazy is too much for them or that I won’t have anything relatable to talk about.
To clear things up, I invited my delightful friend Molly to talk about singleness and share how we can best minister to singles in our churches.
I often think of missions as serving in a remote jungle village, translating the Bible on a life-long calling. While there are certainly those scenarios, missions is so much more than that. As our guest Rivers Partin put it, “Missions is ordinary people, putting their ‘yes’ on the table and desiring to see God worshipped for who He is.”
If we look carefully, every day is packed with countless opportunities to teach our kids practical, life-changing truths about God. Isn’t that the goal of parenting after all? Teaching our children to love God?
As moms, we like to maintain an image of dignity and “togetherness”. We like our comfort zone, and stepping outside of it could allow for unbearable judgment. But sometimes, we need to stop overthinking and be the mom our kids need us to be.
