Embracing the Joys of the Journey

We all have a picture of where we would like to be - a better husband, wife, friend, more disciplined, and the list goes on.  The challenge is to make sure that we are not so focused on the destination that we miss the lessons and joys of the journey.

Please join us for our celebration service this Sunday, May 7th!

Power Source - Next Day App #54

Now that we are a week out from Easter, I wanted to take a moment to reflect back on it.  What is the meaning of Easter and what does it do for our lives?  Why is it so important that we tap into the power of Easter and what it has to offer us?

The Fullness of Emptiness - Next Day App #53

What if having it all isn't the answer?  Haven't we see people who "make it" but remain unhappy?  Maybe there is a different answer.  It may sound oxymoronic but fullness is not about what we fill ourselves with but what we empty ourselves of.

Tuning Out the Noise - Next Day App #52

Have you ever taken a noise vacation?  This is a moment during the day that we set aside just for quietness and reflection.  I know that silence can sometimes seem loud but that is only because it amplifies what we have been trying to avoid.  In this weeks vlog, I talk about using silence as a way to reset our souls and discover peace.
