That Time When God Bought A Van

This week we found out that there was a need for a family in our life group at church. They were having vehicle problems and some other frustrations were thrown in to cause this to be a really big deal for them. One person  felt like they should present the need and opportunity to the […]

Thankful: Unexpected Provision

I am thankful for unexpected provision. Nathan had two random consulting jobs this week. One of them was for a client whose site he set up. She still gets stuck from time and time and requests help. The other one was for his former employer. While it wasn’t ideal for them that they ran into […]

God has been speaking to Nathan and I about the issue of generosity. It’s really been hitting us from all sides. Yesterday Nathan’s workplace showed this video for one of their meetings:   I Like Car from on Vimeo. What if we changed our perspective on the money in our back accounts? What if […]
