The Truth Will Set You Free

Jeannie and I really enjoy celebrating our five grandchildren’s birthdays. This month, Landon, our oldest, will be turning ten! Like any grandparent, we love to see our grandchildren’s reactions when they open their gifts, but more than that, we want them to experience the joy of being loved and part of our family. We want them to receive the blessings that we have known. More »


Sharing the Love of Christ

Evangelization. The word can make us feel uncomfortable and apprehensive. As Christians, we know that we should be sharing the good news. But it’s easy to think that it’s a calling for others—missionaries, religious, those in lay ministry. After all, they know more than we do about the faith, and they have the proper training.

Praying and Caring

The invitation to evangelize is first of all an invitation to pray.

Through the Fire

April 16, 2019, started as any other day. I left the house that morning, turning the front door’s lock, never realizing that it would be the last time. I wish I could have hit the “Pause” button that moment. Even more, I wish I could press “Rewind” now and warn myself. I wish that day had never happened. The Greatest Loss. More »

Letting God Lead

We have been a military family ever since I met my husband, Jay. In fact, when I first met him, I too was on active duty in the Navy—right up until we had our first child. As a family, we have moved ten times. We’ve loved our time in the military and have enjoyed the assignments, friends, and experiences. But we have also endured challenging times, deployments, and sudden changes that tested my trust in the Lord. More »
