For the Leader Who Needs Encouragement to Press On

For the Leader Who Needs Encouragement to Press On

I  left our church’s youth group meeting with my heart heavy and my soul feeling burdened. I rarely leave feeling anything but joy and contentment. I find our meetings are usually filled with laughter, bonding, and a mutual excitement for Jesus. But this night was different.  My original lesson for the evening centered on sharing faith in real, tangible ways.

When You're Scared to Face the Next Season

When You’re Scared to Face the Next Season

We sat across from each other at the kitchen table.  Neither of us wanted to make eye contact with the other. There was brokenness. There was mess. There was a thick air of emotion that clouded the table where just hours earlier our oldest daughter sat coloring. “I’m scared of what will happen if we don’t do this,” were the words I managed to get out to him.
