Mission ConneXion ConferenceThis week I’m heading to Oregon to speak at the Mission ConneXion conference; the topic is Who Is Able? Mission ConneXion believes, as I do, that we are ALL able to preach the Gospel. But sometimes we’re just not sure how to go about it. And so, whether you need help reaching your neighbors, family members...

Family RetreatIt’s not often Celeste isn’t smiling. The joy of the Lord that she exudes spills over onto everyone who meets her. Having cerebral palsy might slow Celeste’s stride, but it certainly doesn’t stop her from serving. Several days a week she volunteers at Joni and Friends, and last summer she also served as an STM at our Murrieta Family Retreat...

Radio Recording DaySometimes while recording radio programs, my friend Rainey ‘helps’ my diaphragm by squeezing me around the middle so I can breathe better. It is especially helpful when I am singing. As I think about it, I’m amazed at how many things need to fall into place to assure a successful radio recording day...

The Sparkle EffectMaking friends in high school is not always easy but getting involved in school programs can help. When Sarah noticed that her classmates with disabilities were being excluded from school activities, she invited them to join her cheer squad. At first, Sarah had no idea how the football fans would react to the inclusive cheer team...

SnickersI never know who will be tuning into my radio program - like the other day when I was telling listeners about a busy afternoon at work. I was jamming to get things done and hadn’t taken a break all day (I was in front of my computer for three hours straight). When I did take a minute to go to the restroom, I came back to my desk and there, in front of the computer, was a bite-size Snicker bar (one of my favorites). The yummy treat was sitting on top of a little note that read, “The Lord your God is your strength and shield.”...

Hope for the Heart AppWhat in the world does God have in store for us in 2017? Just as last year was filled with joys and sorrows, celebrations and challenges, chances are 2017 will be the same. And one thing we have learned is there will always be opportunities to encourage others. So, this year, as we prepare to serve the Lord, and one another...

A Spectacle of GloryThis week, Christianity Today is running excerpts from my new devotional, A Spectacle of Glory. It’s perfect timing too, with the new year just around the corner. Personally, I love to begin a fresh year with a new devotional book. It’s a great way to increase in wisdom and insight so that we can grow in our knowledge of God, just as Paul prayed in Ephesians 1:17. If you’re like me and are looking for a fresh devotional for the year, visit Christianity Today and...

Ben HulinMost people would not even consider participating in an Ironman Race. Any one of the three legs – 2.4 mileswim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run – requires a tremendous amount of strength and training. But Ben Hulin, even though a paraplegic, was not deterred. After seven months of training, Ben successfully competed in the Louisville Ironman Race. He did, however, make a few adjustments – he told me, “I swim normally but have no leg kick, so I wear a wet suit and strap my legs together...
