I feel awed…

Yesterday I experienced new understanding about Christ’s birth. I realized that Christmas is not so much about celebrating the birth of our Savior as much as it is celebrating the fulfillment of the prophecies of his coming and what it would mean to all mankind! Think of the odds of only eight of the “predictions”…

How would YOU respond?

You know how some like to challenge others with a question that goes something like this, “If you were allowed only one more thought to leave your loved ones and the world before you died, what would it be?”  Well I’ve just been hit with a powerful way to answer.  It is this… Mankind has…

Changing times changes us!

Times have changed. We have changed. We all have. It’s a given when the world around us seems to be unraveling at its core in every area of life. That’s a big reason why these days I especially love my Church.  It gives me a place to refresh from all the chaos of life!  No….

Is God a spoilsport?

What child doesn’t like a good playground? Imagine with me the best playground in the world in a bustling city, and what life is like for the children who happily play there. Everywhere we look we see lots of potential for loads of fun.  And the exuberant voices we hear mixed with intermittent shouts of…

Autism stole his words. Did God give him a voice?

On the surface this story seems impossible. But yet it happened and the story continues to unfold. Josiah, who’s now 12 was less than 2 when this once bright, happy-go-lucky boy began slipping away from those who loved him into an unknown world.  After months of intensive testing, Tahni Cullen and her husband were called into a meeting room…

Trimming God down to size

The other day on a video I heard a young man answer a question something like this, “Once they’ve died people don’t come back to life. So, no, God can’t raise anyone from the dead.” His answer must have stuck in some unknown part of my mind for just this morning I had a sudden…

Oh the irony!

Have you ever considered the irony that we are in awe and enamored by the magnitude of the universe, and learned men and have dedicated themselves and billions to understanding it’s mysteries — yet we are blase about the one who formed it and can use the Earth as His footstool. “He sits enthroned above the…
