Dear 2014, I have an inkling that you will get cocky after reading this. Regardless, you have been a kind year. You have been the year that Jesus choose for a lot of things to happen in my life so thank you. Don’t get all comfortable, because you have also being one heck of a […]

The Fall

Whether we admit it or not Christianity (by Christianity I mean one's relationship with God not religion) can be likened to that of a parent and a child trying to take his/her first baby steps. Being a Christian in today's world seems like you are just a moving target. Everyone (from atheists, agnostics, fellow Christians, […]

Well... it is exactly no news that I have three tattoos of which one reads "John 3:16." It was my very first tattoo, and it is roughly four years old. I knew what I was doing when I got the tattoo, it wasn't spontaneous as it was well planned, thought upon and orchestrated. In as […]

Periodically, one of my co-workers will nonchalantly asked me what I want to do when my current, temporary Americorps position ends. It’s a harmless, friendly question, but I freeze whenever someone asks me. As someone who spent the majority of adolescence asking my mother what each day held, it genuinely and deeply bothers me that I […]

If you read the byline on any of websites or my social media pages it usually includes “Friend of Yeshua.” I always one way or the other make the audacious declaration. Yeshua is the Greek word for Jesus.  Around the world, the name “Immanuel” is even more popular than Yeshua. Nonetheless, I just love the name […]

“Quitters never win and winners never quit.” Our parents, teachers and cultural influences teach us this principal from a young age. It’s a phrase people live by. In sports, in school, in work, in the face of fear, doubt and struggle, we are encouraged to push through rather than to pull out. We are told […]

  Love is beautiful. I think we can all agree that love is one of the most profound and beautiful experiences we can feel. Forgiveness is love. There is no forgiveness when hatred abounds, and love is forgiveness from all indication. Forgiveness can only happen when you love someone, God or yourself enough that you […]

Is being kind and doing good considered cliche?

  On a sunny Thursday I am multitasking (Savoring my cup of coffee, chatting with another friend online, formatting and proof-reading an article) when a friend calls me. “Hey Michael!” Without allowing my "Hello” sine wave to transmit to the nearest mast. She immediately proceeds “Are you busy?…” Just like the first time, before I […]

Editor's note: This article was written by Ann Swindell, and appeared on Relevant Magazine. Like always, I just had to share because of how easily one can relate to it. A quick perusal of social media is all it takes. One friend just got married. Another is celebrating some big accomplishment at work. Another started […]

Among some of my favorite sites on the internet is Adam4d. Adam Ford is a faith-based cartoonist and I have shared his work on here before. Today, I share another. His art is laced with scriptural truth, passages and humor. Check out the inspiring "Don't Fail At Failing." I saw it, and just said PREACH!
