How Powerful Grace Can Be

As Iʼm beginning to write this, Iʼm looking over at a happy, healthy, 11 lb, 7 oz, baby boy napping beside me. Iʼm sure nothing sounds too unusual or extraordinary about that. But considering he was born 13 weeks early weighing a mere 2 lbs, 4 oz, itʼs nothing short of a miracle.

I was 26 weeks and 6 days into my... Read More

I wish you could have heard the squeals coming from the row in front of me as the plane accelerated and lifted into the air.

There they sat with remote controls in their laps. I can still hear my kids’ delighted laughter. It was worth every penny! And here’s the thing—that kind of magical surprise is completely within your reach. You don’t need... Read More

Even in Suburban America

The 2nd grade boy woke up early Sunday morning. He dressed in the “good clothes” his mom had laid out for him the night before. After breakfast, he grabbed the brand new Bible, forgetting to take off the price tag, as he dashed to the car. Mom said they needed to get there early so they had time to figure out where to go. They were going to church. For the first time. Mom said it was a new year and they needed to start it right. They found a parking space and walked into the church building.... Read More
