Called to Action

I love being active. I love playing sports and games, exploring new neighborhoods, and doing hands-on projects that show others love and compassion. This call to action is apparent in our Christian life in many ways. Nowhere in Scripture are we told to sit tight and watch the work of the Lord.

Not-So-Nice People

I’m not sure how it fell on the ears or landed in the hearts of the disciples when Jesus called them to deny themselves, pick up their cross, and follow Him (Mark 8:34), but for me, it painted images of beautiful sacrifice.

Simple Love Goes a Long Way

Three weeks after I moved into my new apartment, I met Kana. Kana and her daughter had just moved in across the hall. The immigrant single mom had recently lost her job and didn’t have much outside support.

Voices of Annie

Each year as Easter rolls around, I look forward to hearing the voices of Annie. Some of the voices are male, others female. Some speak with a heavy French accent, others with a southern twang like me, yet others with a western drawl.

Get Creative for Annie Armstrong

Looking for some great ideas for how to promote the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions? There are tons of ways to promote missions, and missions offering seasons are great times to get creative. Here are 3 ideas to incorporate into your plan:

Easter Bracelet

One spring afternoon, I invited the women in my section of the neighborhood to come to my house for a finger-food supper and Easter fun. We shared food and exchanged pleasantries and then I handed each woman a paper plate covered in beads, thread, and a bracelet clasp.

Glorifying Jesus

We want our life, our work, and all that we do and say to glorify Christ.

I Didn’t Want to Do It

What teenage girl hasn’t begged God, “I know I have done wrong and have no right to ask this, but please don’t let my mother find out!” Certainly I had many times. But 15 years into adulthood, what was God asking of me?

Courage to Obey

We often stumble all over obedience. Yet when we do obey, we find how powerfully God uses it.

Carrie Stallings discovered this on a Peru missions trip. Carrie walked by a field and saw a woman using a tub and washboard to do laundry.

Hot Fudge Cake and the Gospel (Part 3 of 3)

I did not see that coming. I’m ashamed to admit it, but I was not expecting a positive response. I assumed this entire scenario was about God testing me, and perhaps He was, but how self-focused of me not to realize that this wasn’t just about God working on me!
