“Therefore, brothers, since we have boldness to enter the sanctuary through the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way He has opened for us through the curtain (that is, His flesh), and since we have a great high priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, our hearts sprinkled clean ...

Let’s Talk About Feelings

Feelings

How easy is it to coast through a day and really “feel” very little?  We are surrounded by distractions.  Events and to-do lists clutter our normal life, such as school, work, sports, social activities, but not only that.  We have enticing technology at our fingertips that is capable of filling all of the in-between moments in our hectic schedules.  We ...

Getting a fearful 3-year-old to jump into a swimming pool can sometimes be a challenge.

Relationships: Counting the Days and Making Them Count

DCF 1.0

Life is short. Life is fragile. Relationships in our lives will not always be what they are right now, will they? First day of kindergarten, driver’s licenses, graduations, the process of loosening and then cutting parental apron strings… there are so many seasons and transitions in life.

Parenting is one of the highest yet most challenging callings in life. No wonder Dr. James Dobson, years ago, wrote a book entitled “Parenting Isn’t For Cowards”! It is not uncommon for many of us to experience vocational success while not always having the same sense of success as parents. This seminar (filmed in April, 2015 at Regents School of ...

You are not going to believe it! Those are some of my favorite opening words to any story. When you hear those words, you know that what follows is going to be unexpected…and hopefully really good! I wonder if, on that first Easter Sunday, the women who told the disciples about the morning’s events started their account by blurting out, ... Read More »
