The Power Of Presence

Posted by Ian Crosby on

I’m an independent person. I like to do things my way, on my time and, often times, without help. I’ve been this way for as long as I can remember. In school, I was the guy who would do the entire group project by himself, even if other people were assigned things, because I wanted...

Call And Seek

Posted by Andrew Knight on

My 2 ½-year-old son and I play a game together. I would call it hide and seek, but it’s really more like call and seek. Here’s how it works: My son runs off somewhere in the house, usually just a few feet from where I’m standing. I pretend not to know where he is. I...

The Thief Of Joy

Posted by Lauren Creal on

We’ve all been there. Sitting in the waiting room of a doctor’s office, or any office for that matter, is not my idea of a good time. As seconds turned to minutes, and the minutes dragged on, while anxiously awaiting to hear my name called, I decided to pick up a magazine. I...

Misplaced Faith

Posted by Paul McDill on

Then the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we are.” — Numbers 13:31  The story of the 12 spies going into Canaan has been one of my favorite stories for a long time. God had clearly told the people...
