The Reality of the Resurrection

Posted by Casey Coats on

I have a 5-year-old son who is obsessed with all the typical boy stuff. These days, his obsession centers around snakes, spiders and sharks. Almost daily, he’ll ask me if he can look at pictures of one of those three on my phone. So I’ll google “sharks,” click on images...

Take Another Lap

In his book, Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell tackled the commonly held stereotype that students from Asian countries are better at math. Gladwell explains that they aren’t inherently better at math, but that cultures that have a tradition in the tedious and laborious work of wet-rice...

Renew Your Mind

Posted by Casey Coats on

A Beautiful Interruption

Posted by Casey Coats on

When my wife and I got married, we had a plan to wait five years before trying to have kids. About three years into our marriage, I came home one night to my wife handing me a gift bag. She was acting funny as I pulled the gift out of the bag. It was a baby’s onesie. Talk about an...

Love Letters

Posted by Casey Coats on

My wife and I just completed a move to a new house. During the packing-up phase, my wife ran across a box containing a bunch of our first emails that we sent back and forth to one another in the first months of our relationship that she had printed out, and boy are they sappy! My wife called me...

You Know the Way

Posted by Casey Coats on

“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where...

Know the Author

Posted by Casey Coats on
