Christians Should Read

I was never one of those people you would find lying on the beach, cuddled up by a fireplace, or sitting in a coffee shop, enjoying a good book. The library was not a place to find a good read, but a place for me to find DVDs and magazines. Despite the fact that I’ve […]

Theology and Me: Three Takeaways from a Season of Study

A few weeks ago, I finished the last of two biblical training courses that I took this spring at YWAM Montana Lakeside. The first course was the Old Testament Studies Seminar, and the second was the Church History Seminar. Both of these courses were absolutely fantastic, and I learned a lot about God, his Word, and myself. I […]

Discipleship Through Old Testament Theology

How Does Old Testament Theology Help You Make Disciples? Monotheism through Genesis 1:1 – the Origin Story Paul called the Old Testament “the Scriptures”, and this is what he says concerning them, “All scripture is breathed out by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the […]

Love the Ordinary

“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.

We are all counselors. Christians and non-Christians alike, in every word and deed, provide counsel to another of either righteousness or wickedness.

Reunion Not Worthy to Compare

We’ve all been there: especially as YWAMers we are all too familiar with growing to love people just for the season to end, leaving people and people leaving us; saying goodbye to people we love is hard. When we are separated from these people – we can’t help but miss them: it’s natural to groan […]

Teach Me to Love

It been a long three weeks, but I have really loved Thailand. A lot has gone on, from spending time with some people in prison to hanging out in a remote village on the border of Myanmar to teaching English to so many students of different ages. Even with all that going on, I haven’t […]

Planting Seeds and Trusting God

God totally blew my mind the other day.  Here’s the story. One of the temples in Chiang Mai does something called Monk Chat.  Basically, a tourist can sit down with a monk and ask questions about Buddhism and what it’s like to be a monk. We use this as a ministry opportunity.  It’s a cool […]

In Praise of Brokenness

The past felt hard but the worst was yet to come. Thank God I was oblivious to this fact. In the exact middle, between hurt and more hurt, I ventured off to a 9-month, intensive, Biblical Studies program. I wanted the learning for my future career in ministry but needed it for my own personal […]
