Faith: The meaning of Christmas
I never get tired of the Christmas story. The idea that the almighty infinite God, the creator of the universe, became a baby - a crying, smelly, helpless baby - is so unlike anything we could have ever imagined on our own. If you've ever read the Old Testament, you'll realize how...

Faith: Feel like you're running in circles?
Do you ever feel like a dog chasing its tail? So little time, so much to do. You're probably multitasking to try to get it all done, but time passes so quickly, so let me remind you to look to the One who has control over everything. Give of your time to read an amazing story I want...
