Googling Grace

Googling Grace

In my dark room, the light of my phone illuminated the small space around me as I lay in bed and Googled, "Does God punish our children for our sins?"

The Trouble With Worry

The Trouble With Worry

I think there is a leak in our kitchen ceiling. I keep staring at it, waiting for it to collapse. One of my biggest phobias is a collapsing ceiling which may be weird to most, but I fear this because I've lived through it. When my oldest son was a year old, we had just moved back to Camp Lejeune, North Carolina from Arkansas. 

My husband was deployed to Afghanistan, so we moved into base housing a little early to get it prepped for his arrival. Shortly after moving in, I noticed that the ceiling in our dining area was sagging just a bit. I kept an eye on it for a few days, and it seemed to sag more and more each day. A crack appeared in the seam where the sheetrock was connected. That crack kept getting bigger and bigger, and soon, the entire thing fell through and water poured into our house!

All These Things

All These Things

Have you ever been frustrated, looking for your keys, while you’re late for work, and haven’t had the chance to have breakfast or your coffee? Or how about having a looming deadline, and your kids won’t go to sleep, and all that stands between you and the deadline is a quick proof reading and hitting the send key?

What about this; being at your wits end in that relationship, feeling under appreciated, and feeling as though you are holding the weight of that relationship.

Aren’t those situations the worst?

The Worthy Unworthy

What's keeping you from reaching your true God-given potential? Scripture says this, "Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." (Matthew 19:26)

We talk about legacy at Freedom and what it means to leave something positive behind for our family, our community, and our world.

How excited do you get when you hear a story about a young person being the first in their family to graduate? Or a non-profit celebrating an anniversary of helping people for "X" number of years? Or a country gaining precious freedom from oppression?
