The Singing Parrot

“Stand up, stand up for Jeeeesus…” Do you ever sing in the shower? I mean, do you ever really belt it out so echoes reverberate throughout the house, scaring the neighbors walking their dog on the sidewalk if the window happens to be open? Or maybe, like me, you prefer to just “let it go”…

Now What?

May 16th, 2016 Hoots and hollers echoed through the building as the graduates moved their tassels to the left side of their caps. I couldn’t believe how quickly the past four years had flown by. The erratic roller coaster ride consisting of late night study sessions and laughter with dear friends came to a screeching…

Victory

May 9th, 2016 Shouts of jubilation reverberated around the world. People left their homes and workplaces to dance together in crowded city streets, cheering and singing together. It didn’t matter if they knew each other or not; everyone was united at heart. After so much loss, after so much hardship, the fierce fight for freedom…

A Servant’s Heart

May 2, 2016 “I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.” Abraham Lincoln I cherish my mother. She is everything a mother ought to be: patient, gentle, and loving (Galatians 5:22-23). As a child, I watched as she rose in the dark every morning…

Be Still

April 25th, 2016 It was a glorious day. The sun gently warmed the calm air. A black swan drifted lazily in the water. A tranquil breeze unfurled the flag proudly stationed on top of a turret. The still moat reflected the shape of the stone castle above it. We like comfort. We like knowing we’re…

Spring Cleaning

Some ignore the idea of it altogether. Not me. I love to organize, sort, and clean. It brings me satisfaction to purge things I don’t need from…

Bon Voyage

April 11th, 2016 On April 15, 1912, disaster struck. The largest passenger liner of that era foundered after striking an iceberg, sinking to a cold and watery grave. The ship said to be “unsinkable” turned out to be just the opposite. Due to poor decision-making and planning, there weren’t enough lifeboats on board for all…

April Showers

April 4th, 2016 Here in California where Family Radio’s headquarters is located, we’ve been hurting for rain the past several years. Our lakes have all but dried up, our mountains are barren, the farmers are having trouble growing crops, and some of the tap water tastes the slightest bit like dirt. Even the seasons, mild…

Risen-Pt.2

He is Risen, Part 2

All was still. Light crept over the horizon. Sabbath had finally drawn to a close. Two women tiptoed through deserted streets into a garden outside the city wall. The weekend hours had passed slowly as they waited to anoint their beloved Rabbi’s body with spices where He lay in the garden tomb. Suddenly, an earthquake…

He is Risen, Part 1

Everything in the Old Testament points to God’s plan of salvation through Jesus Christ’s birth, life, death, and resurrection. These events fulfilled many prophecies, and affected many real people who lived through them. This blog article explores the circumstances surrounding the crucifixion as seen through the eyes of Mary Magdalene. Night had fallen. Everything was…
