At the age of nine, Hope Peacock went in for a routine surgery to remove her tonsils. But only two days later, Hope went into cardiac arrest, suffering a severe brain injury that left doctors thinking she would never again speak, see, walk, or eat on her own. It was a harrowing experience for the...

When you read the story of Joseph in Genesis 37-50, you discover a lot of awful things happened to him: jealousy from his brothers led to his kidnapping and being sold as a slave. Even when it finally looked like Joseph’s life had ‘turned the page’ with his promotion to supervisor of Potiphar’s...

Happy Administrative Professionals Day! I am so thankful for Lisa Miehl, my executive assistant, and Christie Willis, my secretary. These two ladies keep me on track — Lisa, overseeing all of my speaking engagements and appointments, and Christie serving as my ‘hands’ at the keyboard. All so that...

It’s Autism Awareness Month — a time to shed light on the challenges and the blessings of autism. Like this recent poster I saw of “The Positives of Autism.” Perhaps some people may be wondering how autism can be a “good” thing. But while children and adults with autism may struggle with...

When you think of “quality of life,” what comes to mind? For some, a good quality of life means higher pay, good health, or a stable home. But hardly ever does someone associate a “good” quality of life with disability. Having to be bathed, dressed, and toileted every day? For most people, having a...

Recently, Crossway sent me their new Super Giant Print Bible in the English Standard Version (ESV) — and boy, was I impressed!

Back when I was on my feet and used to play field hockey in high school, our coach had a thing about running laps after practice. But after a full day of classes and hockey practice, there was not an ounce in me that actually wanted to run. Often times, by the fifth lap, my legs would be dragging — but...

In Matthew 25, Jesus tells a parable to His disciples about the kingdom of heaven. He says, “When the Son of Man comes in His glory… the King will say, ‘Come, take your inheritance… For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink… I was sick, and you cared for me...
