On Evangelism and Fear

My hands were sweating, and my heart was beating with that heavy, shake-inducing kind of rhythm that I normally only get when looking down from precarious heights. I trembled a tiny bit when handing the woman a small pamphlet about faith. I looked at her, gathered my courage and asked “Would you like to talk with me about Jesus?” She

The Freedom in Forgetting

“Don’t forget your lunch,” says mom as you run out the door. “Remember your homework tomorrow!” exclaims your teacher as the bell rings. “Did you remember to floss?” asks the dentist.         Memory can either save us from embarrassment or evade us at the worst possible time.

Not Afraid to Ask: Is Divorce On My Doorstep?

I recently spoke to a group of college students on the topic of divorce. I asked the students, “How many of you have personally been affected or know someone who has been affected by divorce?” The response was mind-blowing.

Taking the Gospel to Ethiopia: Geremew and Rediet's Story

Sometimes God’s love looks like grand miracles and great provision. Sometimes it looks like toasted barely and hot coffee on a Sunday afternoon. For Geremew and Rediet Tulu, Word of Life’s pioneer missionaries to Ethiopia, it can be both. On a recent trip to Uganda, I visited this well-loved couple and walked away with a greater understanding of what it
