Our current series is “Being God’s Image” with Old Testament Scholar Carmen Imes. In addition, upcoming studies include “Praying Paul’s Prayers,” and “How to Read the Gospels,” that will take us into July.

We are excited to announce that Vivian Mabuni has joined our team!

And you can always access past conversations. Subscribe today on your favorite platform! We are glad to have Viv joining Eryn and I as a third host here as well!

Our Daily Bread Devotionals

I’m still writing for Our Daily Bread devotionals, and I appreciate the opportunity to share short insights into God and faith in Jesus. Here’s a recent one on “Family Matters.”



Would you enjoy a bundle of books for your summer reading? It’s been a while since I’ve done a giveaway, so I have plenty to share.

As we enjoy spring and anticipate summer, it’s a time to soak in the bounty of God’s grace - even in the challenging moments of life. As you plan for vacation, as you move your body in ways that make you feel alive (and a little sore!), as your kids break for summer, graduate and some marry, as you or your spouse retires or changes jobs, as you shift to navigate a different set of needs, may you know that you know that you know that our good God is active and working for you.


“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens…” Ecclesiastes 3:1
