    You Are Not Alone

    Most of us don’t delight in weakness, limitations, and vulnerabilities. You’re never going to see a Marvel movie about an average human being like you and me struggling to make it to payday, yelling at their kids, or being overcome with debilitating anxiety. Millions flock to theaters to down popcorn and watch superhero movies precisely because the heroes don’t have the same limitations we do.

    A Sense of Place

    I’ve always connected really strongly with places. Places are a little like people to me—they’ve got a personality, a history, a story. There are some places I’m drawn to immediately and some that don’t ever feel quite right, even if I’m not exactly sure why. And then there are a handful of places that have so defined periods of my life that they are inextricably linked to my own story. One of those places is Irving Bible Church.

    I opened the dishwasher and was instantly confronted by my own irritation. My husband has this annoying little habit of placing the cereal bowls flat on the upper rack. After six of them are spaciously arranged, there is very little room for anything else. I started the arduous task of rearranging them so the rest of the dishes would fit.

    It Takes a Village

    Summer is the season for camp. Hot, sweaty, jumping for joy excitement all week long! There is nothing quite like a week away at camp where the fun is huge and God’s love is lavish. If you have ever been to camp, you get it. So when I was asked to be a co-director for Vacation Bible School this year, I had to say yes. After all, VBS is basically summer camp at church!

    A True Welcome

    Two names immediately come to mind when I hear the word "hospitality"—Jonathan and Bre. About a year ago I had the privilege of traveling to Kansas in order to help my friend Daniel propose to his girlfriend. The only problem is that I don't know a single person who lives in Kansas.
