He Has Commanded Us To Love

The Command Was Given Thou shalt love. This is not an option we are given. In the book of Mark, chapter 12, when Jesus was being quizzed by the Jewish leaders of the time, people who were trying to bait and trick him, Jesus told us we are to love. God first; and not just an “oh, I love you,…

What Is Hope In The Chaos?

I think this may be the most important post I write here. Ever. I am going to attempt, in the next several hundred words, to explain to you exactly what Hope In The Chaos is to me. And hopefully what it will become for you. First, it’s a blog. It’s a way for me to communicate with the world. This…

Obedience Is Better Than Forgiveness

Finding Balance In A Chaotic World

Finding balance can be a tricky thing, and for everyone it’s different. For our family, balance is fluid because what works to balance us today is different than yesterday, and will probably be different tomorrow. Being fluid, however, also makes it that much harder to achieve. Figuring It All Out One of the things I have learned to do in…
