This month we had a victory! Our youngest woman graduated from NH. We celebrated her graduation—socially distant, outside, and with individually wrapped snacks instead of a meal—thanking God for what she has accomplished and for what lies ahead. This woman defines what it means to be a survivor: raised in foster care, no parental support, … [Read More...] Beating the Odds

Do you recall the story in 1 Samuel 17 where King Saul chose shepherd-boy David to fight the giant Philistine known as Goliath?

"I can see God in this." That's all we need to hear, right? If one person can see God in this worldwide lock down...this incredible pandemic...would we say it's been worth it? It's taking quite a bit of faith for me to say that this all might be worth it, or that there is a purpose in this uncertain time, if just one … [Read More...] Certainty in Uncertain Times
