The Kingdom: Hakuna Mutata

Hakuna Matata really is a wonderful phrase, but it’s hard to live out. Worry gets us all at one time or another. When worry sets in we forget about the size of the God we follow because our problem seems so big. Worry is the broken version of us. Our worry ends when our worship […]

MADE…To Tell Your Story

God tells his best story through us. Be ready to tell your story in such a way that will help people connect to Christ. God can use even your worst moments to bring others to Christ. Tell others how God is working in your life.

My Messed Up Family: Forgiving In The Mess

Family hurts and difficulties are messy. Steps toward forgiveness in your family are some of the hardest steps to take. When they are taken they can often paint the best picture of Jesus. Radical forgiveness takes radical steps to be like Jesus. Matthew 26:31-35, 69-75; John 21:15-17, 1 Peter 3:8-9.
