But after they fell in love, Dorian decided to bring a couple of his high society friends to watch... Daniel McCoy
Jesus Never Lost at Rock, Paper, Scissor As a kid, I was in line for the amusement park. Grandpa was taking us there. And he told me to lie about my age to get me in a lower cost bracket. That was a collision between respecting your elders and telling the truth. So do you flip a coin? Let’s say the bills... Daniel McCoy
Grace as a Bop on the Head in the Middle of the Night I’m writing this in the middle of the night as God is convicting me of my lack of perseverance in many areas of my life, both spiritual and personal. It comes after a challenging evening in my marriage, nothing serious, just the fruit of a busy day and a lack of grace and patience for... Michelle Eagle
First Century Tombs Although it is impossible to know for sure if Constantine’s officials identified the exact tomb of Jesus in the early 300s, we have every reason to think we have access to the location they believed was Jesus’ tomb. We are… Bobby Harrington
It’s Not Looking Good, But It’s Not over Yet “It’s not looking good, but it’s not over yet.” Remember thinking this thought at two minutes left to go in the fourth quarter? You said to yourself, If they can make a three pointer and then force a turnover . . . . You might have had the same thought on an election night, as... Daniel McCoy
The Historicity of the Two Men Who Authorized Jesus’ Death – Evidence for Easter Part 2 The truth of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection is supremely important. But the position a person takes on these events should not be a matter of pride, arrogance, or blind faith. It should be a matter of fact. The Koran says that Jesus did not die on the cross. The New Testament says he did.... Bobby Harrington

How Do I Make My Teenager Love Jesus? This was a question I received recently from a mom. She reached out to me and was desperate for answers. “He goes with us to church and is fine going to his youth group, but when I try to talk to him about faith he seems so disinterested.” How can she light a fire in...

Growing a New Marriage with Dirty Dishwater The dishwater had few suds left, and the water was a muddy chocolate brown. That’s when Daniel walked into the kitchen and glanced over where I’d just placed the bowl and spoon into dirty dishwater.
