Simple Ideas for Cultivating Family Worship

Simple Ideas for Cultivating Family Worship

One of my daily prayers for my three kids is that God would capture and captivate their hearts. As they grow in faith, I want them to be so overwhelmed by God’s torrential grace that they respond with lives of torrential praise. I’m guessing that I’m not the only parent who is praying this for his kids. As Christ-followers, all of us want to see our kids not only choose to follow Christ, but develop a heart of worship that is evident in every area of their lives. How can we as parents cultivate this heart of worship in our…

Hiding in Plain Sight

Hiding in Plain Sight

A ring of keys swung from her hip, and I could hear her clinking down the hall long before she came into view. Her name was Ida, and she was the geriatric security guard employed by my high school to police the front doors.

Yesterday, we heard from Dr. Michelle Bengston on the topic of spiritual abuse. Today, we’re digging deeper into this topic as we look at how it plays out in the lives of young women and how we can equip them to protect themselves from spiritual abuse.    What does spiritual abuse look like? This is a loaded question, because some people don’t even think there is such a thing. Yet it is . . . Isolation from family and friends. Being told you are irrational.

Encouraging Your Teen to Grow their Faith

Encouraging Your Teen To Grow in their Faith {Giveaway!}

Growing up in a Christian church I heard over and over again about the importance of spending time with God. I was told it was crucial to read my Bible and get in The Word. But as a young girl, I really didn’t know what that meant. I was only told to get up early in the morning to read my Bible. I tried. I thought it was boring.
