We Are Who God Calls Us To Be

Posted by Valerie Williams on

I remember my first day of class at Dallas Baptist University, listening to my professor do his best to pronounce a student’s name, only to hear a voice respond, “Just call me Harry.” The professor continued through a few more names until he paused to struggle through another...

Who Are You

Posted by William Battle on

It took a long time for me to admit to myself that I actually cared what other people thought about me. I thought I behaved in a way that demonstrated otherwise, but the vast majority of my fears, doubts and insecurities stemmed from my performance (or lack thereof). I tried to build my entire...

Renaming Circumstances

Posted by Kaitlyn Bray on

I attended Sunday school regularly while growing up, went to private school for 11 years, and was heavily involved in youth group activities. I know many a Bible story. I’ve read them multiple times, studied them, dissected them, tested over them, memorized them, even watched them...

A New Name

Posted by Joanna Sarver on

In various countries around the world it is customary to select a new first name when one converts to Christianity. Commonly referred to as the “Christian name,” it is carefully considered before being chosen. Much like naming a child, the meaning and history of the name are...

What Is In A Name

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

OK, let’s play a game. I’m going to start a poem, and you finish it for me: Roses are red violets are blue… Did you know the rest? Many of us can’t even remember where we first learned that poem. Was it in kindergarten, during Valentine’s Day? Who knows? The...

What's Your Name

Posted by Joy Vroonland on

My mom died 12 years ago today. I really miss her. She’s the one who gave me my name. If she told the story once, she told it a couple hundred times. Because of an illness and treatment my father had had years before I was conceived, they didn’t know if I would survive to birth. So...

Have You Abdicated Your Throne?

Posted by Nolan Jones III on

You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was. ― Anthon St. Maarten, Divine Living: The Essential...

Find Healing

Posted by Laci Prewitt on

My youngest son, Rory, is 5. He is 100% of all the youngest child stereotypes: artistic, popular, social, manipulative, charming, persistent. He is also the baby of the family. Every night, he is scared of something in his room, he can’t reach anything without his stool, and he is...

First Step

Posted by Andrea Bailey on

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to serve for three weeks at a Christian summer camp for orphans in the Ukraine. This camp was right by a river and mountain, and in the side of the mountain was the Sviatohirsk Cave Monastery. While we were there, we were able to tour the monastery, which...
