Being a disciple_you can do it Teaching

You Can Do It

Most of you are familiar with the Nike slogan – “Just Do It.” If you will indulge me for a few minutes, I would like to chat about “getting it done.” Let’s turn first to the Bible, specifically John 19:30. We see recorded here a powerful moment when Jesus declared: “It is finished!” Have you ever considered what was finished?…

Be strong and courageous. LeadershipTeaching

Strong & Courageous

What does it mean to be strong and courageous?   We have ideas of strength that are faulty and even more faulty ideas of courage. We see famous people that are strong and bold and ‘out there,’ but do you know what strength and courage is for you?   Strength: the capacity of an object or substance (i.e. YOU) to…

you can find life Teaching

LIFE

Feeling excited about this God-given phenomenon called LIFE. How does this strike you? Perhaps it feels more like, “What?! I’m struggling to survive and you’re calling it enchanting?!” or, “Seems more like a slow death than LIFE”. Maybe your perspective is more along the lines of just surviving in a robotic form, going through the motions and attempting to keep…

Emotions Teaching

Emotions

Recently I woke up earlier than usual on Saturday morning. About eight o’clock! The Lord was speaking some things to my heart so strongly that I had to sit up in my bed and listen intently.

Love Always Seeks The Best LeadershipTeaching

Conflict Resolution

People will always perceive conflict in different ways. Some avoid it at all costs while other seemingly do things to create it! Some see conflict as healthy; others never see anything good about it. This I do know: see it as you may, conflict does occur on mission trips. As a leader it’s not a matter of will we need to…

The Father's Touch Teaching

The Father’s Touch

If you’ve ever felt abandoned by a parent or guardian in your life –like you may have missed out on some things growing up as a child because of a parent(s) not being there--, you are not alone. There is hope. I grew up in a single-parent home. It was just me, my mom and two older brothers. Growing up…

Self Talk

What About Self-Talk! What are some of the things that go through your mind when you are in a moment of being quiet and no one else is around, or even when you are around other people? Are they thoughts that uplift and encourage, or are they depressing and sad? Do these thoughts speak the language of love, comfort, health…
