Today’s journey inspires us to believe in the power of love. As I travel to go see my husband today I’m reminded how powerful and comforting love can be. As my plane took off the elderly couple next to me quickly embraced hands. Her husband squeezing extra hard to validate to his wife that he was with her and there was no need to fear. There’s just something calming when you see an older couple still showing signs of love. How come we can’t achieve that same powerful love embrace in our younger marriages? Are we taking each other for granted and missing out on the mystery behind love?
Today’s journey takes us to a place of self-reflection on how we look at our place in church. This topic is important because how we value our place in church, and our place in God’s Kingdom, ultimately affects the joy in our lives.

So how do you ignite a church body to place such a high value on their role in the mission? Ever consider becoming Employee Owned?
Today's journey takes time to reflect on friendship. We all have friends. Some are just acquaintances, some we can rely on, some we take for granted, but some are extra special.

Do you have a friend like this? If you don't, do you question why? If you do, are you doing the same for them?
Today's journey comes after several days of feeling very ill. Being stuck in bed has allowed for a lot of time to myself to think. I've heard often how precious our health is and that we should be grateful each day we awake feeling healthy. I have been humbly reminded the affects not taking care of ones self can have on a body .
