Rid of My Disgrace: Small Group Discussion Guide

Grief Undone | A Book Review

Grief Undone | A Book Review

I’m always a little scared to pick up a book about grief, because I don’t want to feel sad by the time I finish it. I am happy that “Grief Undone” was a breathtakingly honest yet hopeful account of how…

Easter Egg Dinner

Easter Egg Dinner

Once a year, about a week before Easter, I have a nightmare that I can’t find anything to wear on Easter morning for church. Now I should clarify, this really shouldn’t count as a nightmare because at any given minute…

A Glimmer of The Gospel in Genesis 3
