Last weekend, Ken and I were at a party celebrating the 70th wedding anniversary of two good friends, Al and Margaret Sanders – both of these lovebirds are in their 90s! They asked us to sing a song to the group, and so here we are, dressed in tuxedo T-shirts, singing that old favorite "Love...

The Bible is an invitation to discover God’s Story... so the best thing we can do is Immerse ourselves into it. Especially for summertime reading. I realize you might not normally place the Bible on your summer book list, but this special series is like reading a paperback without chapter or verse breaks...

It’s been 28 years since Dad passed away, but I miss him still. John King Eareckson always seemed so strong and capable to me. He was my hero, and I was his pal – around our relatives, he was often called ‘Big Johnny’ and I was ‘Little Johnny.’ He loved working with his hands, building stone walls and our family farmhouse. He was an accomplished wrestler, too… Daddy served as an alternate on the US wrestling team in the 1932 Olympics. Even after arthritis made it necessary for Dad to use a pair of Canadian crutches, he still led our family with strength and character.

I remember one evening, when I was sitting in the old farmhouse with my sister, we heard a squeal of tires and a short while later, we saw the light of leaping flames. A vandal had set our barn on fire! In the light of the next morning, my father slowly sifted through the ruins of his...

The women at St. Matthew's Church in Southern California have enjoyed their quilting time together for years. It's always been a great time to build community and help others. So it's probably no surprise that when they learned about our need at Wheels for the World, they jumped at the...

A Crown of Splendor

Today Ken and I came across Proverbs 16:31 in our Bible reading, “Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained by a righteous life.” After we closed our Bibles, we reminisced about our trip to Russia in 1991. I was in Moscow with Billy Graham and, during our stay, we befriended an elderly woman...
