It’s a Full Moon TonightIt’s a full moon tonight! Whenever there’s a full moon, I always remember my mother. Oh, how she loved gazing at the big yellow moon as we sung every lunar song we knew — songs like “Shine on Harvest Moon,” or “Blue Moon,” or “By the Light of the Silv’ry Moon.” They were moments that drew me close to God. Psalm...

National Family Caregivers MonthAs a quadriplegic, I am so thankful for my husband Ken and all he does to help care for me. Like, checking that I don’t run low on my blood pressure medication, driving me to doctor’s appointments, lifting me in or out of bed, or even making a last-minute run to the grocery store for eggs. Ken does a lot — and that’s true for...

Reformation Day Celebration!Today is a very big celebration for the church. Why? Because today, we're celebrating the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s reformation. And that is quite a big deal! Just as a refresher, Martin Luther was a German priest back in the late 1400s; he came to disagree with the Catholic view on several biblical teachings and wanted...

God Preserves His WordIt was three weeks after Hurricane Harvey when Stephen and his family returned to their home in Texas -- all their personal belongings were stacked out in front of their house. Slowly, Stephen began to sift through the slimy mess looking for anything salvageable. Just when he thought everything worth saving had been picked through, he noticed an untouched area. Among the items, he found his missing cowboy boot, their mailbox, and several destroyed books. However, under the debris, Stephen spotted their treasured Beyond Suffering Bible. Quickly, he grabbed...

Revive Us 2I want to tell you about a special event to be held October 24 (encore performance November 1). That evening, Revive Us 2 will be live-streamed in theaters all across America. This is a great way for the body of Christ to come together and be strengthened, encouraged, and unified in praying for our nation. I’m sure you’d agree, with all that’s happening in our country, we need to be praying together. Kirk Cameron, along with Dr. Ben Carson, Ravi Zacharias, and I will bring Holy Spirit inspired messages. Friend, this is an exciting time — God is moving and creating opportunities for us to invite others to put their hope in Christ, but we can’t do it...

But we’re not the only ones celebrating anniversaries. Through the Roof, our good friends and charter ministry partners in the UK, are also rejoicing...

Sib's Sign

During a recent, busy trip back east, Ken and I were scurrying from one ministry event to the next, juggling flights, hotels, and crowded freeways. Our schedule was rigorous and, I will admit, exhausting. On one leg of our journey, we flew into BWI from Nashville, and then made the long drive up Interstate 81 to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. As we unloaded at the home of Sib Charles, a dear friend and staff member of Joni and Friends/PA, I felt a soothing breeze – the sun was just setting over the farms and cornfields beyond her front door. After slowly inspecting the flowers in the backyard, I wheeled into Sib and Jess's kitchen. The first thing I spotted was this sign; actually, the first thing I saw...
