He's Enough

A few weeks ago, my university hosted a Poverty Awareness Day, where we had an Awareness Fair on our student union’s lawn. At every table, there were pictures of starving children and their ailing mothers or over-worked fathers. The people I talked to told me about their dealings in some of the world’s poorest countries, and it really got me thinking.

Dodging Puddles

They are those two words that make even the bravest parent want to run and hide: POTTY TRAINING! That marvelous joy has come to our house in the recent weeks as our daughter Abigail is now 2 ½ and ready to move into greater levels of independence.

Heat of Battle

Heat of Battle

Heat of the battle. This phrase has been on my mind lately. I’ve been inspired recently by various writers to this blog who encourage us to follow through on our promises to pray for one another. And it got me thinking to not only pray but to pray fervently (Colossians 4:12) and continue with those in need through the heat of the battle.

True Universal Health Care

Before I begin, I want you to know this is not a political blog post. With that said, unless you have been living under a rock (see, there I go again with the clichés) for the last few years or you just decided to not turn on a TV or read any type of news article, you know that the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) was made law, and some of it started to go into effect on October 1.

Doing the Linger

By Sister Natalie Pezzenti

I’ve always been a lover of words. Big words and small words alike, I’ll take them all. Put those words together into a meaningful statement and you can bet I’ll remember it when I need it the most. Take one of my favorite quotes, for instance:

“Linger too long in the stench of your hurt and you’ll smell like the toxins you despise.”

Scenarios, Scruples, and Solutions

Scenarios, Scruples, and Solutions

Reprinted with permission by the Student Support Program. This is from the February 2015 newsletter. These articles are a little longer than a normal blog, but they're worth it!

If you've been reading these newsletters for a while, then you know pretty much every article is filled with advice. We strive to give you scripturally based counsel on everything from dating to school to parents to friendships.

Last year, we turned the tables on you and asked you questions. We called it "Scenarios, Scruples and Solutions" and it generated some awesome discussions in youth groups and MBA classes across the church. The feedback was so positive that we're delivering round two!

Each one of these scenarios is based on real-life events faced by actual young people in the church. Some of these issues may not seem like such a big deal. Others may seem so overwhelming you feel like there's nothing you can do to make a positive difference.
