Who in the World is Epaenetus?

Dan Toney | “As I look back, most of the things that I have strived to finish first at are really not important in the big picture.”

Godly Leadership

Brad Warren | “⁣It’s one that champions humility over charisma, being kind over being compelling, servanthood over efficiency, sacrifice over capability, simplicity over dynamism, loving others over being loved by others.”

Climbing Mountains

Chip Songer | “If I had to use a few words to describe the journey outside of the struggle, they would be rewarding, refreshing, exciting, awe-inspiring, beautiful, and worth it. “

Coffee Shop Conviction

Alyssa Tournear | “All my hurry that morning was keeping me from experiencing the love, joy, and peace of the Kingdom. I was losing out on encouragement and rich conversation from a friend. I was losing out on all the wisdom from what I was reading. And I was gaining absolutely nothing.”

Chimes of a Home

Addie Jarrett | “‘That is my most favorite sound in the whole wide world. Because that means I get to be at Life House, and Life House is home.'”

Gifts of Dignity

Maggie Schade | “Shouldn’t we value our brothers and sisters like our Father does? Shouldn’t we do our part to remind our community that they are loved, chosen, and placed in their families by perfect design and intention?”

Meal Pack Road Trip

Elizabeth Rayburn | “I was struck with another time that logically there seemed no way…when we as sinners could see no way, and God sent His own Son to save us.”

Thankful for Christmas

Yvonne Wickenkamp | “I’ve come to understand that Thanksgiving should be a natural response to Christmas. To fully enjoy the richness of the season, I need to first focus on the gifts from the Father because He is a generous giver.”


Tyler Bade | “In your suffering, your strained relationships, your anxiety, your way-too-many-big-decisions-to-make, your mundane, your joy – you are not alone. The one who knows you best and loves you most, and is powerful enough to actually make a difference is in your corner and on your team.”

Self Pity

Logan Hahn | “Might our souls be so firmly rooted in the love and strength and grace of God that we don’t need anyone’s pity because we trust that where we are is exactly where God wants us, and there’s no better place to be.”

To Know Him is to Love Him

Jed Moody | “Resistance is the thing that wakes up with you when your alarm goes off and convinces you that you’re just too tired and you can do it later.”

Saved in Translation

Darrin King | “Any seasoned parent knows that sitting down to a tea party with your daughter and a company of stuffed animals isn’t about caffeine needs or even the social development of our child! Rather it’s about connection, isn’t it?”

God Sees Me

Raina Songer | “God doesn’t ignore me; he pursues me. God doesn’t forget about me; he cares for me. God doesn’t look down on me; he kneels beside me.”

Connective Tissue

Isaac Schade | “God will ALWAYS be faithful to complete the work, we just have to be faithful enough to say ‘yes’.”

Stillness in Autumn

Meghann Arnold | “In the stillness, I am reminded of what matters. My eyes are focused on the one who created and ordained rest.”

Christ’s Church Heroes

Patti Bearden | “Christ’s Church of Oronogo is getting ready to celebrate her 70th birthday. I’ve been part of this congregation for over 65 of those 70 years because that’s how old I am. Oh, how the memories flood my mind! I can’t separate my “real” life from my life at Christ’s Church.”

The Long Haul

Todd Owen | “Life in Papua New Guinea begets patience. Daily life involves cooking from scratch, washing laundry (either by hand or with a twin-tub washing machine powered by a small generator), keeping relationships alive, and growing through sharing community life.”

Tiny Churches

Bekah Behnke | What a gift to see the place where we spend our time as the place where we do ministry: the place where we experience God’s goodness through giving our daily to Him.

Water is Required

Emilee Mitchell | As obvious as it is, when it comes to plant growth, water is required. And when it comes to spiritual growth, living water is.
