Is Your Umbrella Beach-Worthy?

Over the years we have learned a great deal about beach umbrellas. They need four things to do and be what they are intended for – keep you shaded from the hot sun and protected from the ultra violet rays.

Grow A Little Or Grow A Lot?

Can you think of a time in your life when you knew what to do but you just didn’t do it? You had all the right information but you failed to use that information.

Get comfortable and close your eyes. Now picture a desert and a tropical rainforest. What comes to your mind? A desert is generally defined as land which receives less than 10 inches of rain per year. When you think of the desert you probably think of words like barren, arid, dry, hot, dusty, sand storms, parched. You think of cactus, […]

The Rocking Chair

Do you ever wake up in the morning feeling like you were in a wrestling match during the night? You laid in bed all night tossing and turning, worrying about the stuff of life. You wake up feeling more tired than when you went to bed. We all face challenges in life, and whether it is financial, physical, relational, vocational, […]

Why Does God Allow Evil To Happen?

At this time in history it is hard to get two people to agree on anything, let alone get a consensus in a group. Everyone has their own view point and seemingly anyone who differs is wrong. But there is one thing that most people would agree on – the world we live in is broken. And not just in […]
