How to Grow: Applying the Gospel to All of Your Life

There’s a tree in my yard that is different than the others. It sits in a row of other trees, very similar in type and size. One of the biggest differences is the color. All of the trees are a good, vibrant green, but this one tree different than the rest is a dull brown... Continue Reading →


The truth about rest we don’t want to hear (Subversive Sabbath book review)

Rest is a four-letter-word. It is one of those words many of us have an unhealthy relationship with. Some rest too much and, in reality, it is simply laziness.

Something other than the norm

I am in the process of reading Subversive Sabbath by AJ Swoboda. It is a deeply impactful, practical book. I'm only just past page 50.

Joyful obedience looks like growing in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness,... Continue Reading →

There is something deep within a man that Kenny Luck calls to. There is this deep desire to do something that matters, to... Continue Reading →

Finding the Love of Jesus book review

I think I picked this book up by accident. I chose to read and review it based on the title because I had recently read The Forgotten Jesus. That book was all about understanding the Jewishness of Jesus and connecting the New Testament with the Old Testament, seeing how Jesus Christ fulfilled the Old Testament Prophets....

Parents Rising book review

Parenting is not for the faint of heart. I've only been a parent for just over a year and a half, but I am able now to better understand the commitment and sacrifice it takes to be a good parent. Technology and the culture around us don't make this any easier, either. It seems like... Continue Reading →
