Were you “that” kid? The one who spent all their time and money on a horse? Weekends and evenings cleaning stalls and trying to make money for shows, entry fees, and all the cool new tack you always wanted? Would you consider your horse your “best friend”? As a kid growing up I had no […]

Who are We Really?

The Gospel of New Creation In 2 Corinthians 5:17, Paul proclaims, “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold the new has come.” What does the word “new” bring to mind? For me I think of words like fresh, untouched and flawless. I see images of beautiful, […]

Choose Joy

One of the things that I really appreciate about God is his joy, and that he gives it in all circumstances. I think the joy of a Christian can be a very attractive thing to the world. People are caught off guard when they see a person full of joy in the midst of a very hard […]

Why Do I Dance?

Our dance company recently returned from a tour across the southern United States. While in the South we quickly realized that self-expression isn’t as prevalent in southern churches and Christian communities as some of the other places that we’ve traveled.  However, we knew that dance was on God’s heart, so we obediently stepped out.

Ministry is Overrated

“Ministry is overrated” That’s rather a provocative statement. I apologize if I’ve just made you spit out your coffee in surprise at those words. I’ll give you a moment to wipe your screen down.
