Grace: A Light in Dark Times

LightGod tells us that suffering isn’t pointless. We are to rejoice in our sufferings because of the outcomes they will produce: perseverance, character, hope, and the certain expectation that God will make all things right and work all things for our good and his glory.

The Eyes of Faith

The Hunger Games and a Hunger for the Real Life

“The God Who Sees Me”: Achu’s Hope

AchuRecently, Kimberly Smith, founder and director of Make Way Partners, posted on her blog the story of a Sudanese orphan named Achu.
