We Are All Counselors

We are all counselors. Christians and non-Christians alike, in every word and deed, provide counsel to another of either righteousness or wickedness. Though not everyone holds a master’s degree or Ph.D., all Christians are empowered by the Great Physician.

Emotions – A Biblical Perspective

Importance of a Biblical Worldview In today’s prevailing society, we have a greater influx of worldviews and standpoints than we have ever have had before.

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 […]

Always Good

Sometimes in our lives we are faced with circumstances that would not be considered our ideal. When we plan out what we want our lives to look like, seldom it includes walking through difficult things, and actually seldom our plan includes even moments that are among the greatest we have lived.

A Love Beyond Comprehension

It feels like it was just yesterday that the School of Biblical Studies started; we are now 6 weeks in and it’s been both an incredible time and a huge learning curve! Last week I taught the book of Mark, which was not only my first New Testament teaching but also my first 3 day […]

The Road to Damascus

I have been a Christian since I was about 4 years old. I have grown up in a Christian home and have read my Bible quite a bit throughout the last 22 years. As I have grown and matured in my faith Paul has become one of my favorite characters within the Bible. I have […]

Freedom

Freedom, we all love freedom but what does that actually mean? What does that actually look like? How do we define freedom? This is something the Lord has been showing me lately, what it actually means to be free. So, first off, let me ask you a question. How do you define freedom? Or how […]
