I just love seeing how God works through our trials, don’t you? It was back in 2010 when stuntman, Samuel Koch, prepared to appear on Germany’s Live Television show “I Bet That” to perform one of the riskiest stunts the show has ever seen. He had planned to ‘vault’ over a fast-moving car, but something…

In the world of disability, anytime I hear about a new treatment that improves someone’s physical limitations, I can’t help but get excited. It’s how I felt when I learned that my co-worker Tracey is embarking on a treatment that may improve her spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a genetic condition which affects the motor nerve…

In today’s climate, any talk about death or dying is usually cloaked in fancy euphemisms or noble-sounding falsehoods, like “death with dignity.” Cutting through such obscurities in order to address the core issues can be tough. Recently I sat down with Jim Daly of Focus on the Family to talk about the perspective we as…

A Bigger Picture

August 23, 2018 | Comments Off on A Bigger Picture

Sometimes because of faulty decision making or maybe just the press of multiple circumstances, we find ourselves tired, discouraged, and a little burned out.

Category:

A favorite ‘go-to’ website for me is TheGospelCoalition.org – there’s plenty of rich insights from God’s Word that always inspire my heart. You can understand why I was excited when they asked me to write an article on “What I Would Tell my 30-Year-Old Self.” My article had a lot of reposts and, in fact,…

Helping with Life Transitions

Category:

We have all been created with a desire to fully belong. We want to be loved, embraced, cared for, and missed when we’re absent. A disability in no way removes this desire, and it is up to the church to create authentic communities where individuals can connect and truly engage in the journey of life…

Wheeling through Walmart the other day, I passed by a display of school notebooks, pens, and pencils.

Looking back, my school…
