Hiking the Trail

Hiking! There is something about that word that I love. It is full of enthusiasm and adventure. I love the word because of the incredible memories I have had being in God's creation. There are so many metaphors that come to mind as I walk purposely down a trail, following a map or the signs placed along the way. The metaphor that resonates with me the most is the parable of the narrow and wide gates.

Your Next Family Trip

As the daddy-daughter dances wrap up for the year, warmer temperatures give families opportunities to spend time outdoors. Family camping trips with fishing boating and hiking are all family favorites. There is a lot of planning that goes into family vacations to make sure it will be fun and memorable. I wonder if Jesus was thinking the same thing when he revealed himself to his disciples. They already called him "Master," but they did not see who he really was.

Certificate In Spiritual Leadership

It is 2015! With a New Year comes new goals and dreams. We seek to understand where God is leading us and are open to new possibilites.

Even with new goals and dreams, we are hesitant to take action because or just don't know where to begin. The biggest fear I have is feeling incompetent and wishing I had someone to lead me, train me, teach me, and inspire me to reach my new goals.

Why I Love My Dad: My Home in the Palm of Your Hand

Editor's note: The following is one of the third place entries in the "Why I Love My Dad" series. Click here for more >

I made my home in the palm of your hand. I wrote my name along your heart vein. There are invisible threads that tether me to you no matter how far I go: China, Fort Collins, the mountains and all the spaces in between. Threads I can trace to remember sweet memories, words of wisdom, and moments of gratitude. They are threads I can trace back to the man that captured me in warmth the day I was brought forth.

I was searching for a different photo, but I am so grateful I found this one. This is how I longed to remember you and me. I remember you being as handsome as Tom Cruise, smiling and strong. You were my hero who had me on top of the world, safe, and on a great adventure.
