Let me tell you a story of hope. And a story about someone who’s lived without it.
Lately I’ve been feeling an urgency to bring Jesus’ love to the unlovable people in our world. I’ve always had a passion for people living in the inner city, and particularly for women working in the sex trade. I’ve been feeling challenged recently about what I’m going to do about that. Am I going to walk out my passions? Or let my life and my comfort overrule? If I’m really head over heels for…Continue

Adolescent kids are the most difficult ones to live with. They are at a phase in their lives which makes them a little confused and delusional, which is understandable. They feel that they have grown up, and that they know more about how their life is supposed to work more than their parents or their elders. At such a time in their lives, going out with friends and making new acquaintances is…Continue
