Real Hope

 You can exist without food for weeks, without water for days. You can exist without air for a few minutes, but you cannot live without hope. Hope keeps your soul alive. Listen, hope is not some wishful thinking about the future. You need hope now. You need hope...

The Value of a Supporter

All of us have benefited from people who supported us. It may have been a family member or teacher that offered words of encouragement while you were in school. It might have been someone who mentored you in order for you to excel at your job. Such is the case for a...

Loving Easter

 Each year we look forward to spring and Easter as a time of renewal and growth. This idea is closely tied to the natural change of the seasons as the natural world dies in winter and is reborn with growth in spring. This understanding of the natural world relates to...

To Be Continued…

 I can remember when I was a lot younger that those words would on occasion flash upon the screen at the end of a television show and I would cringe! That meant I would have to wait a whole week for the story to be completed. I was not a fan of waiting and I don’t...

Celebrating the Season

Many years ago, a friend took me caving outside of Barstow. Wearing elbow and knee pads, gloves, helmets and headlamps, we crawled down lava tubes down into a cavern and sat down. We turned off our headlamps and sat quietly in the darkness. My friend explained that in...

Happy Holidays?

 The holidays for many people are not happy. For some, painful memories of loved ones gone, finances gone awry, stresses of a job, and even health challenges makes being happy difficult. But it need not be that way. However, you can turn your holiday blues into...

Peace on Earth, Goodwill Toward Men

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Not because the weather has turned frightful or we are roasting chestnuts on an open fire, but because everyone seems stressed out, tired and broke. Of course, this isn’t the reason for the season. The reason was summed up...

Easter Changes Everything!

 A little girl came home from school after career day and told her mother, “When I grow up, I want to be a nurse.”  Her mother told her, “Look honey, you don’t have to limit yourself to being a nurse.  You could be a doctor, you could be the chief of surgery or you...

Rebirth the Gift of Easter

“Christ is Alive!” we sing, shout and claim this on Easter. The gift of Christ’s resurrection means that each of our lives are given the chance to be reborn and remade in the image of God’s goodness.  Each time we welcome Christ into our lives to bring that life of...

Advent and Christmas Greetings

 Many times in life it seems that God is silent. That God does not speak into our everyday lives and help us on this journey. Yet, when Christmas time comes, many opportunities arise for us to listen to the call of God through reliving that first Christmas. The...

A Bundle of Joy

Babies have a way of bringing joy and excitement to a household.  From the moment you discover a child is on the way, there is a growing excitement in your life, but also in the lives of those around you.  There is fresh expectation as you see the ultrasound and...

Revive Your Faith

 For thousands of years the periods of Lent and Easter have been a time to examine a person’s faith.  Age-old traditions promote self-examination through repentance, prayer and fasting, and often offer guided questions to take the believer on a journey into their own...
