And for a disabled person, no gift shows God’s love better than a wheelchair. This Christmas, you can send that perfect gift. And change a life. When Pedro was born deaf and with cerebral palsy, his mother, Yusimy, knew life would never be the same for their family. As a single mother living in Cuba, the stigma and the shame of having a son with a disability weighed down hard on her. She...

Carrying the CrossRecently TCW interviewed me for their online magazine – in it, we talked about Christians who 'throw in the towel spiritually' when suffering in their lives becomes too great. My response? Don't do it. The cosmic stakes are way, way too high! Take a moment, read the interview, then share it with a suffering friend whose faith is under attack. Lord willing, it'll widen their eternal perspective, and bolster their confidence in our Savior!
