A 10-year-old Boy’s Response to the Courageous Novel

Praising GodLast month I received this letter from a 10-year-old Canadian boy named Christian. He had read the Courageous novel and wanted to share with Alex and Stephen Kendrick and me what he had learned from it.

 

The Duggar family: “open to receive whatever gifts God wants us to have”

The Duggar familyFew Christian families have received as much national media attention and caused as much debate among people (even some believers) as the Duggar family. They are featured on the TLC reality show 19 Kids and Counting.

Just Children: Mobilizing Young People as Peacemakers

Breakthrough PartnersToday’s post features guest blogger Michael McGill with Breakthrough Partners, a ministry whose work I deeply appreciate.

Cancer Comes to Our Family

Angie and Dan Stump"Light shines in the darkness for the godly. They are generous, compassionate, and righteous....They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the LORD to care for them."  —Psalm 112:4,7

Friday our youngest daughter Angela was diagnosed with cancer. 

The Latest on Angie

Angie and Dan StumpOur daughter Angela called us late yesterday afternoon to let us know that the needle biopsy the doctor performed on Tuesday was inconclusive, meaning it told them nothing, so it’s not bad news or necessarily good.

Trusting in God’s Unfailing Love

Pat RobertsonA few weeks ago Pat Robertson did it again...a “family values” advocate undermining biblical family values. At first I thought I wasn’t going to comment. But it continues to bother me that a supposed spokesperson for the Christian faith continues to make remarks that are so contrary to the gospel of Christ.

Precious in His sightI think people are creating an artificial distinction because they feel that whenever you talk about one social evil and injustice, you are obligated to list every other one. I don’t agree with that. And I don’t appreciate the fact that this is seldom done with other injustices, but is routinely done with abortion.
