Guarding the Gospel of Grace

If it were not for a thunderstorm that struck Martin Luther with the fear of death, he was bound to become a lawyer. The parallel truths of his wretchedness and God’s holiness became etched into his mind, like a chisel into stone, which evoked torment within him. Trying to reconcile […]

Christian Walk

Your Christian Walk Isn’t About You

I was a young missionary and a young mom. My husband and I had just crossed the Pacific Ocean and arrived on the field with our six-month-old baby girl. I started hosting women’s Bible study right away, but I didn’t have the bandwidth yet to teach my own material, so […]

“You expect perfection.” My mom’s well-timed words stung, but I knew she was right. I stood on the brink of “losing it” with my oldest daughter at the local fast food joint. I was struggling to maintain a calm exterior. Inside I was screaming. My mom’s words melt deeper into […]

Four Influential Women of the Bible (and What They Teach Us)

All Who Are Thirsty, Come to Jesus

Sixty percent of the human body is comprised of water. Amazing! In other words, we need water to survive. Water is not an option for us. Our lives depend on it. Think about how easily a human dehydrates. All it takes is a hard workout, a hot day, or hours […]
