  • Crossing a border

    Although we live in a country where we are sometimes divided by politics, theories, and even perceptions of right and wrong, we still have 48 states in one location, plus Hawaii and Alaska added. We have the opportunity to go from state to state by simply driving on through. State roads, interstates and even county two-lane highways have a sign entering and leaving whatever state that you are in.

    Now, what does that have to do with our lives?

  • It’s a wonderful life

    If you were to have an experience like George Bailey in the 1946 Christmas movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life”, what would you discover to be the real meaning and purpose of your life on planet Earth.

    Living a life of purpose reflects who you are deep inside, your beliefs, values and passion for living. It is about following your heart and doing what you love to do with passion and purpose.

  • His plan and our story
  • ‘All prayer ... becomes praise’

    A number of years ago, amid the mice and filth of a Taliban prison in Afghanistan, two ordinary American young women wrote and sang praise songs to the Lord.

    Missionaries Dayna Curry and Heather Mercer didn’t know their fate at the hands of their captors. Even so, in the midst of their uncertain future, they found reason to pray rejoicing. They took comfort in recalling the biblical accounts of King David and of Job, both of whom wrestled with God because of their difficult circumstances, yet ultimately surrendered with praise to the Almighty.
