If you’re not feeling thankful and ready for Thanksgiving yet, just remember this: All God gives you is a gift. He reminded us of that in our own lives recently, as I shared in the sermon video below. Nothing is “a given” – the beating of your heart, the ones you love – nothing. So […]
I checked into Facebook yesterday only to find a high school friend only a year older than me had died. He had just gotten married earlier this year, and had a son in college. I guess he knew it was coming. As I backtracked along his timeline to find out what happened, I saw where […]

See my wonderful and diverse people! I love them so much!
