16 Freedoms we Have in Christ

This week people throughout the United States celebrate the freedom we have as Americans. But, the concept of freedom didn’t originate with the founding of the United States. It’s found throughout the pages of the Bible, culminating with the person and work of Christ. Jesus declared, “Therefore, if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed” (John 8:36). As believers, we enjoy numerous freedoms because of what Jesus has done for those who have placed their trust in How COVID has affected us

The sun is shining, warmth is in the air! We all know what that means; summertime is here! For many youth ministers across the country, that means camp is just around the corner. I am in full camp mode getting every detail locked in and ready to go for a fun week with high schoolers this July. The camp theme this summer is “You Be the Judge”. I will be challenging the campers to make good Godly choices in their How COVID has affected us

Seasons of Life

Life seems to ebb and flow like waves on the ocean. Change is a constant in our world. Today you may be young and single living alone and going to school. Tomorrow you are middle-aged, married, and working 40 hours a week. Today you may be standing up at your best friend’s wedding. Tomorrow you are mourning with family as you say “Goodbye” to a loved one.  Life can drag on for years or come at us in a second. How COVID has affected us

The Next Gen

“He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.” Psalm 78:5-7 These verses teach us the importance of making sure the next generation knows God, His laws, and How COVID has affected us

Immeasurably More

I attended the Michigan Christian Convention over the weekend. It was a great lineup of speakers, all speaking to the theme, “Immeasurably More.” Ephesians 3:20-21 was the core verse which reads, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Toward the end of one of How COVID has affected us

It may be Friday, but Sunday is Coming

Easter Sunday will be here in a few short days. Christians all over the world will celebrate our Savior’s victory over sin and death. The entire Christian faith is centered on Jesus’ raising from the dead. However, we rarely think of Easter without first being reminded of Good Friday. Of course, there is nothing “good” about it since that’s the day we remember Jesus nailed to the Jewish cross and crucified. There seems to be a theme that emerges from these two events – How COVID has affected us


I remember a story one of my professors told us during my college days. A missionary went to a remote village that had never heard the gospel message of Jesus before. They didn’t know what to expect but to their joy, the village welcomed them with open arms and were eager to hear what they had to say.  The missionary started in Genesis, and day by day, story by story, shared the entire Bible with the people.

Your Teen and Social Media

Let’s discuss three areas that can help you as a parent better understand and connect with your teen when it comes to using Social Media. It can be very daunting for some parents when their children know more than they do about the Social media platforms available on the Internet and Smartphones. Here are some tips to help level the playing field.  1. Keep an open dialog with your teen. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. What app are you using? How COVID has affected us

Happy Greatest Commandment Day!

It’s Valentine’s Day, so of course I need to write my article about love. In 1 John 4:8, it says that “God is love.” It says that if you don’t love you don’t know God. That seems pretty straightforward. Jesus said that people will know we are his disciples by how we love one another (John 13:35). Jesus also said, “Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friend” (John 15:13). When asked about what the greatest commandment was, Jesus answered, “Love How COVID has affected us

Death was Arrested

This year I am challenging myself to get to know the songs we sing on a little deeper level. I love the way music can help us approach the throne of God, each of us in a different way.   As I was listening through some of Sunday’s set list I came across a YouTube video that talked about the writing of Death was Arrested. The song is full of Biblical truths, so relating to the content has not been a How COVID has affected us
