You can choose to live in a world where you’re terrified of darkness or you can live in a world where your God terrifies the darkness. I chose years ago to accept Jesus into my life, but before that, the enemy tried to convince me I was a good person, almost like God should have […]

“I’m a high school dropout, and I’m dumb, so if you want me on your team, you’ve got a lot of work to do,” I prayed. This was my weak-minded prayer in 1994 when God began to deal with me about ministry. I was a preacher’s kid. I grew up in ministry, and I had […]

I was born with pasty white skin. It was nearly transparent. You could see veins and arteries clearly through my skin, but honestly, I never even noticed it. I was a young kid. I was innocent. I loved to play and dance. I sang to the top of my lungs every Disney song within my […]

Greta’s long brown tresses draped down the white bedsheets. This was the moment that she had waited for her entire life. Her heart pounded within her chest, truly coming to life for the first time. She had never found anyone who loved her like this: one who had such reckless passion for her, one that […]
