The Porn Problem

It was just a few years ago that the Christian world was blindsided as it learned about the size and scope of the modern-day porn problem. We learned that a vast percentage of young men, and an increasing percentage of young women, are immersed in porn and have been since their youngest days. We learned that many older men and women are into it as well. This led to a great number of books on the subject as well as …

Recommended Reads: Get Out of the Middle of the Road

In my mid-twenties, I had the opportunity to bike across the Golden Gate Bridge, and to this day I count that experience as one of my favorite adventures of all time. My ride went exactly according to plan — a few miles along the coastline, a steep uphill climb leading to the bridge, a cruise across the bridge overlooking the bay, and a smooth downhill sail to the quaint town of Sausalito, where I ate lunch, rested, and then headed back across the bay by ferry. Perfect. Almost a decade later, I relived that San Francisco adventure with my daughter […]

Vlog: Exploring Ontario, and Why I Love Being a Christian

We’ve just come through this long and deep cold snap. We’ve just gotten over this spell where it’s been -25, -30 degrees, absolutely freezing. It’s finally warmed up a little. And I’ve decided I’ve got to get out of the office. I’m here at one of my favorite spots at Waterdown, Ontario just to explore. And while I’m at it, I’ve been thinking, I love being a Christian. I am so thankful to be a follower of Jesus Christ. So …

Happy First Birthday, Craving Connection!

One year ago, we released our very first book. One year ago, Craving Connection: 30 Challenges for Real-life Engagement was launched into the world, landing on bookstore shelves and family rooms and in book clubs and women’s church circles. You shared your excitement with us (and we had SO MUCH FUN celebrating together!): We recognized that we all long for meaningful relationships, the Colossians 3:14 kind that fulfills our desire for unity and connection with God, our friends, and our community. We asked together, “Where do we start?” And we responded that Craving Connection is a journey with (in)courage writers sharing real-life stories, […]

Headlines & Happenings (Disgraced and Disqualified Pastors; Oprah Winfrey for President)

As one week gives way to another, I attempt to provide a roundup of the themes that were prominent among Christian writers in the week that was. This week people were discussing a pastor who had been called out for sins committed 20 years ago and they were expressing sympathy for the girl he victimized. They were discussing how to properly handle such allegations and wondering whether such sin is a permanent disqualifier from ministry. Christians were also thinking about …
