In her book Nothing to Prove, Jennie Allen asks some questions I think many Christians have struggled with. What if we stopped doing things for God and started doing things with God? Maybe the reason you aren't free is that you are trying so hard? I spent a majority...read more
I wouldn’t do that if I were you. What if something bad happens? What if? How would you live with that kind of gut-wrenching pain? It’s WAY too risky. Someone could get hurt. You’ll look stupid. Make a fool of yourself. People just aren’t going to like you. Who do...read more

A few years ago I came face to face with the reality that fear was controlling my life. I believe this is the day I became a full-fledged fear fighter. I was listening to praise music while jogging on a beautiful Tahoe trail. The words to Kim Walker’s worship song,...read more
