Run. There it is. And i’m not really looking forward to it. I’ve had this word on my heart for a while now, but honestly I’ve had a hard time committing to it because I know that it’s going to be hard…(which seems like a trend for me every year…a tough word that I don’t …

I Want To Be A Better Person…But Why Does It Have To Be So HARD?!?!

I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do (Romans 7:15) This verse has always kind of given me a headache. I can remember reading it over and over to myself slooooowly…trying to break it down into parts. It was almost …

Women and the Church – Part III

I am sure that these three simple blog posts (Part I & Part II) haven’t closed this issue forever. It has, after all, been a contentious one for quite sometime. I do hope that it will make you think about this issue for yourself and maybe do some further studying of your own. The conclusion that I have come to is that God created man and woman equally in his image. He has a definite plan for each in his creation.

The Good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way. God sent his son, Jesus Christ, to die in order to restore our relationship with him to what it was meant to be at creation. This restoration, from the words of Jesus and the apostles, can also restore our relationship to one another.

One Year Old Parents

Being a parent is a huge responsibility and a rewarding experience! It is also a lot of work. As hard as it is sometimes when you’ve been up all night or the only words you’ve said all day are “No, don’t touch that” it is all worth it.

Transitions and Identity

Parents Jordan & Chantal Gadsby

We’re still just getting started on this new ministry focus and seeking God for what it will look like. I already feel refreshed and a new excitement for ministry knowing that we are doing what God is calling us to do. My identity as the Children’s Pastor has changed, but my identity as a child called and loved by God is as strong as ever.
