Christians and Mental Illness

As I got older, my parents got divorced, and I struggled with body image issues, and my anxiety went through the roof. My family knew that something was wrong, and I was very resistant to outside help. I thought that good Christians should not struggle with anxiety, that if I had more faith I could just make it all go away

The Intimacy of Art: How Christians Connect Creatively With God

Many times, I’ve written poems and songs to express my feelings towards God and find His help in the midst of them. These times of crying out to God in my darkest points and reminding myself of who He is, is the very essence of art. Art is a conversation with our Creator. Art is rekindling the fire of passion we once had for Him.

Dethroning 'Me'

Selfishness –it’s been around for a while, dogging our footsteps and pulling our chains.

Hey Church, We Need to Talk

Therefore, the church no longer means “fellowship of believers” but rather a building that we go to for an hour or two on Sunday mornings to get enough of Jesus to last us through the week. Maybe that’s our problem, our culture has redefined church to make it mean something that it was never intended to. The church was never meant to be a building, it was never meant to be all about us, the church was always supposed to know God and make Him known.
