Finding the Right Story

Written by Erik Gernand

One of my favorite children’s authors is a guy named Mo Willems. I think his best story is one called “Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs.” 

 “Wait. What story is that? I thought it was about a girl and some bears.” You might say. And you’d be right to catch that something is not quite right about this story. 

 It’s the story of three dinosaurs who decide to trap a little girl in their house so they can eat her. They plan everything [...]

Delightful Dew

Written by Ashley Hoffner, missionary in Argentina

Well, the dew is actually frozen…making it frost. But I’m trying to be positive in the freezing weather! (See what I did there?) It’s actually been a very cold Fall so far here in Argentina; reaching down to 29°F (-2°C) and it will surely get colder in July and August.

Over the past several weeks, I’ve been doing a lot of my office work (in Finances and Short-Term Teams) and also being able to travel with a [...]

A Peculiar People

There’s this great line in 1 Peter where Peter is reminding Christians that they are a part of something larger than themselves.

They belong to the Christian community.

He writes these words to them,

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” – 1 Peter 2:9

Chosen, royal, holy. God’s special possession. These are great descriptors of the community of people God has [...]

The Greatest Gift

My great-grandson was born four months pre-mature.

My son and I had just gotten back from my mother’s funeral. We were about a block away from his driveway when he got the call that Maggie may lose the baby. After a couple of days, she gave birth to little Julien; he was one pound, six ounces. He looked like a normal baby, just so tiny.

The grief Hunter and Maggie had felt turned to hope, joy, and the deepest love I have [...]
