Last night, as I was driving home, my iPod died so I decided to shut off the radio off and spend the rest of my drive home in silence, listening to see if God would say anything to me. Quiet time with God is one of the practices that I find most difficult. I can [...]

Til Boredom Do We Part.
Posted in Love & Sex on September.26.2009 | 1 Comment »
Am I the only one who gets a little bummed out when I hear the words “Til death do we part” at some weddings? I hate to be such a Negative Nancy, but lets face it: Statistically, 50% of marriages end in divorce. 75% of marriages in Orange County fail. That blows my mind. Only [...]
Love, Sex and God? [pt. deux]

Somebody I know told me last night about a woman on her block she sees, every morning on her way to drop off her kids at school, who jogs (every morning) wearing a skimpy bathing suit top. Ow. It hurts me just thinking about it. When she told me about this woman, I couldn’t help [...]
Who ARE you?

I’m always so baffled. On an average day, with no new posts & without me promoting, I have somewhere between 10-30 people read my posts. This completely confuses me.

I made a photo-book with stories and photos from my trip to South Africa. In case you haven’t seen it, here’s a copy of the rad healing story. One of my favorite experience was house visits. During our VBS breaks we would go meet and pray for different individuals in the community. The first house [...]
Love, Sex and God?

I feel I’ve been confronted lately about my views on sexuality in relationships, and why couples should be in accountability. Here are some brief thoughts on the issue. 1. If you’re asking “How far is too far?” your heart is probably in the wrong place. As followers of Christ, we should aim to be as [...]

Some of the girls I do ministry with told me that they enjoy doing ministry with me because “I’m not afraid of anything.” They are wrong. I am afraid of most things. I’ve just learned to have a trust in God that is greater than my fears. “For God gave us not a spirit of [...]

[Note: This post will, in fact, have nothing to do with "shaking it."] But, dude. I heard some startling facts today: Only 7% of folks in Britain claim to attend church regularly. SEVEN PERCENT. Only 3% of people in Britain, ages 18-25, would consider themselves Christ-followers. Homie say what! A friend of mine were chatting [...]
Child-Like: Part II
Posted in Child-Like, God's Blessing, Lesson's Learned, Love & Sex, Uncategorized on September.17.2009 | Leave a Comment »
About a year ago I started to write a series of “chapters” about the importance of child-like faith: something that’s been extremely significant in my walk with God. I never really showed anyone or shared them, until now. I thought I’d post some of my favorites here. Here’s Part II: Have you ever noticed how [...]
