23 Apr 2012

by Natalie Lynn Borton “Every time you feel in God’s creatures something pleasing and attractive, do not let your attention be arrested by them alone, but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say: ‘O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy, how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!'”...

20 Apr 2012

by Jeff Bethke Marriage today is struggling. Divorces, adultery, misconceptions, etc are plaguing not only the marriage itself but products of those marriages (my generation and the next). My hope in this poem is to highlight the most frequent and problematic issues marriages face today while also pointing to Jesus as the ultimate healer, redeemer, and restorer of every marriage. Whether single or married, my...

You’re Not Alone in Feeling Alone

16 Apr 2012

by Kati Smith [photo credit] Tucked away in the most unassuming of places on my college campus was a chapel. Only four small pews deep and heavy with silence, this place served a hideaway. There were 100 girls my age living on my same floor in the dorms, sharing the same hallway, the same bathrooms, and the same rickety old washing machine. And yet, I...

Knit Together: From Conception to Birth

11 Apr 2012

by Natalie Lynn Borton Although the idea of having children anytime soon absolutely freaks me out—I definitely don’t feel prepared to raise a little one quite yet—I’ve always been one fascinated by pregnancy and human development. Does anybody else thinks it’s both wild and miraculous that women can grow human beings inside of them? What’s most beautiful about it is the way God allows us...

26 Mar 2012

by Alex Evjen [photo credit] We have all heard the phrase “quality versus quantity,” and quality is what the emphasis is usually on, right?
