Praying for Your Children

Praying for Your Children

I have noticed several friends using a 31-day calendar of prayers for children.  It is a fantastic way to pray for the character of your kids to be shaped by God on a monthly basis.  One thing that is really helpful for things like this is for reminders to come to me.  I have the memory of a fruit fly (I used to say ‘goldfish’, but I learned that myth had been debunked by researchers), and for something to become habitual, no matter how much I want to form the habit, I must have some kind of reminder.  So, I have begun entering these daily prayers into a calendar that anyone can subscribe to.  Simply go to the Calendar and subscribe at the bottom of the page.  One of the great things about subscribing to the calendar is that, as updates are made, they will automatically be reflected on your calendar.

What Does Leadership Network Do?

What Does Leadership Network Do?

Often when I talk with folks about my role with Leadership Network, I get a lot of questions about exactly what it is we do.  Sometimes I think it comes down to desiring something a little more tangible.  I give the taglines and share some stories, but some folks want numbers.  Nothing wrong with that.

Reflections on Real Love

Reflections on Real Love

I’ve been thinking a lot about biblical community lately and what it really looks like. And I keep coming back to the “one another” commands in the Bible. The writers of the New Testament really wanted Christ-followers to understand what it looks like to live life well with others. I’m thankful for great friends in my life that regularly love on me and allow me to love on them. We encourage one another, challenge one another, and carry each other’s burdens. Life lived with others truly is better. Small groups are a wonderful place for people to learn the one another commands and practice them. I purposely say “practice” because they aren’t always easy to follow. Sometimes people rub us the wrong way, or we flat out disagree, or there are personality clashes. Despite this, we’re called to love one another and live in biblical community. So this February, the month of Valentine’s Day and love, we’re taking a look at 28 different verses that talk about how we’re...
