Some Assembly Required: Pieces Are Missing

You don’t have to be the greatest baker to know the importance of the right ingredients. For healthy relationships and marriages, there are essential ingredients that God speaks into us. Love and Respect are the language of Heaven. Ephesians 5:33.



Some Assembly Required – Instructions Are Hard

What is the role of husband and wife? There are lots of different ways we can answer that question, but only one way God answers it. When we live in the instructions of God it brings clarity to our relationships. Instructions bring definition to God’s design for marriage. Ephesians 5:22-28, Ephesians 5:21.



Some Assembly Required – The Picture Looks Good

Marriage is tough. It gets even harder when we decide what a good marriage looks like, instead of God. We are made in the image of God, and His image is most clearly seen in the way we treat others, especially our spouse. Marriage is a picture of the gospel. What does your picture look […]



Rooted Renegades: Jump Out of the Boat

There are plenty of distractions in life. We don’t need one more thing to do, think about or be afraid of. In the middle of all of the distractions in this world, there is only one direction that matters – Living life where our faith collided with God’s power. Jesus is the direction in the […]

Rooted Renegades: Give the Bottle

We love to get gifts, but sharing our gifts is a little bit difficult. In a world that focuses on money, we don’t like to talk about it in the church, probably because we need to the most. We give out of cheerful gratitude because of what Jesus has given to us. Giving is the […]



Rooted Renegades: Break the Chain

Part of following Jesus is stepping into the difficult places of life and allowing God to work. One of those places that the church has unfortunately done the worst at is mental health. The battle that rages in our mind is a tool Satan uses to distract us from God. We have convinced ourselves we […]



Rooted Renegades: Wreck the Roof

To follow Jesus it means we get close enough to Him to see change and find life. Not just for ourselves, but to get others to Him as well. Sometimes this requires us to do the uncomfortable and inconvenient. We have been called to live relentlessly and passionately to get anyone and everyone to Jesus, […]



Rooted Renegades: Climb The Tree

The mission of Jesus is not one of safety and comfort. It calls us to take risk, give up and follow. To live in the mission of Jesus requires us to see Jesus clearly. Shame is transformed to hope when looking at Jesus. Luke 19:1-10, Romans 1:20.

Christmas Coming Soon: The Grinch

Life can leave us feeling bitter and angry. If we are not careful we can become hopeless in life. While we can’t choose what happens to us, we can choose how to respond. When Jesus becomes the center of our life, Hope is found. Hope defeats sorrow every time. Proverbs 4:23, Psalm 51:10, Psalm 73:26, […]



Christmas Coming Soon: It’s A Wonderful Life

Taking time to think about life without Jesus is empty and dark. Thinking about life without us is void of purpose. When we realize that we find life in Jesus and He has called us to the ordinary places to make the greatest impact, we find our purpose. A wonder filled life is only found […]
