Dear Friends,

In the summer of 1980 my family moved to Huntington Beach, California.  It was a great place for a teenager to live, and I quickly threw myself into the Southern California lifestyle, which for me, included surfing.  We lived a couple of miles from the bea...

Dear Friends,

If you've been checking your inbox for the Plan B devotionals, then you know it's been a while since I've written.  Some of that is because of a missions trip I went on last week, and some of it is because - shortly before the missions trip - we took a tri...

Dear Friends,

Recently I found myself killing time reading an old National Geographic magazine while waiting for my car to be repaired.  I chose this particular magazine out of a stack of options available in the waiting room because the cover story was on animals of Ke...

Dear Friends,

Last week one of the men from our church committed suicide.  I don't know what went through his mind when he made that choice, but what I do know is that his death has left a big wound in the lives of his family and friends.  As I've talked with many of th...

Dear Friends,

Last night my wife and I spent the evening visiting with a couple that has recently gone through a very difficult and traumatic experience.  One of the most challenging parts of their story is that it all happened after they made decisions based on what th...

Dear Friends,

Have you ever prayed for something, only to see the deadline for your prayer request come and go with no reply?  I have.  Actually, it feels like I’ve been doing that a lot lately - which is why I was encouraged when my Bible reading this morning took me t...
