what I wish they knew…

What does a room full of teenagers need to know about God?    That was the question I kept asking myself as I was prepping for our first breakfast club.    It felt like a big and daunting question because God is BIG. It also felt like a big and daunting question because of the…

the post about worry.

I’ve been guilty of doing something lately that the bible says not to do. There’s a lot going on in our family that I cannot talk about yet, but it’s difficult and painful stuff and I’ve been worrying about what’s going to happen with all of it. Worrying about what the future looks like. Worrying…
