The green VW Beetle and the power of reaction

I woke up in the hospital with my right leg in plaster. I had no idea how I got there. I was only 4 years old. Let me tell you how it happened, as told to me later. This experience is one of my earliest memories. Every day at dusk, my older brother and I […]

Outlasting the setbacks

Part of my work involves helping people to change—to change themselves, their situation, or both. Some want to change their marriage, others their finances, some want to quit an addiction.

Maybe

Maybe that person is not thinking evil of you. Maybe your friend didn’t greet you in the hallway because her mind was really elsewhere. Maybe your wife/husband is right, after all.

Check the health of your relationship

All you need to die is to be alive. All you need to have relationship problems is to be in one. Many couples we counsel find out that they have relationship problems the same way some people discover they have a deadly disease. On a routine visit to the doctor, or when they go just […]

Training ground

Then Saul sent word to Jesse, saying, “Allow David to remain in my service, for I am pleased with him.” 1 Samuel 16.22 Shortly after being anointed by God as the future king, David was providentially summoned to serve in the palace, next to King Saul. Was God preparing young David to sit on the […]
