The Gift of Grace

April 23, 2019

The Gift of Grace “Amazing grace, how sweet the sound / That saved a wretch like me. / I once was lost, but now am found / was blind, but now I see.” The words of this famous hymn were penned by John Newton.

Partners Through Prayer

May 2, 2019

Partners Through Prayer As a junior high school student, I received a letter from an elderly woman in my home church.

Surprised by Jesus: A Man Healed

August 17, 2013

Surprised by Jesus: A Man Healed Recent studies say that pessimists tend to be more satisfied with events in their lives than their optimistic counterparts. The reasoning is that these adherents to a “glass half empty” mindset have lower expectations for happiness or success. When negative things happen pessimists respond, “Well, I expected...

Joy in Suffering

May 8, 2019

Receive and Live

May 11, 2019

Receive and Live Academic dissertations often have the most incomprehensible titles. In an effort to help, one website encouraged scholars to sum up their work in one easily understood sentence. The results were quite comic. For example, one complex dissertation titled “Using Zinc Finger Nucleases to Characterize the Regulation of c-MYC Transcription”...

Don’t Be Taken Captive

May 12, 2019

Don’t Be Taken Captive Iker Casillas is arguably one of the greatest goalkeepers to have played the game of soccer.
