Hi, my name is Whitney, and I’m a backseat driver.I don’t really know when it happened. As a kid, I relished sitting in the front seat, serving as navigator to my mom or dad on long car rides. Back then I wasn’t concerned with how they were driving or the routes they wanted to...

The fridge broke me.The past month has been a challenging one for my family. At the beginning of November I was involved in a car accident, and a week and a half later my father-in-law passed away suddenly.

Posted by Meredith Cantrell on

When we sit down at the table for a meal, I usually ask my children what they want to be thankful for that day. Inevitably, their answers are...interesting. “I’m thankful for peanut butter!” pipes my 4-year-old. “Doll!” says my 2-year old. I smile, because for...

Why Gratitude is a Spiritual Discipline

Posted by Eric Demeter on

It’s almost unbelievable that Jesus heals 10 lepers in Luke 17 simultaneously. Without fanfare, He simply commands the motley crew, “Go, show yourselves to the priest.” They exit stage-left and their skin is restored.​Jesus certainly missed an opportunity there to make...
