Living in between

This entire year has been one of transitions for me. On New Year’s Day I visited, prayed with and said goodbye to my grandmother, knowing I would not see her again in this life. She went home to be with the Lord one week later.

A lesson from Job

One of my favorite books in the bible is the book of Job. Largely because when I go through trials it helped me to understand that suffering is an everyday occurrence, but as long as God is in the trial, the test is easier to bear.

Place your worries in God's hands

Like many people my age, I have vivid memories of the events from the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. Just 10 days after those horrific attacks, I got on a plane with my wife and children and moved to the Philippines. For the next 12 years we served there as missionaries, only returning to the U.S. for short visits over the years. We kept up with the news and knew about things happening back here in our home country, but it wasn't the same as living here.
