On August 26, you’ll get to read another powerful book from Francis Chan. Francis has been hinting at writing a book about marriage for years now, but other important projects have taken priority. But now the wait is (almost) over. Francis and Lisa have been working together on this book,...
Question #3: What is your motivation for wanting to get involved or respond to the Kony 2012 movement (or any other cause)? We are often convinced by a good argument or the way something makes us feel. We trust in the authority of people we respect, people we love, people...
Swaziland has the unfortunate distinction of leading the world in HIV/AIDS infection, which means it is a country with many orphaned and neglected children. Over the course of two trips, my wife and I experienced this overwhelming need firsthand and knew we wanted to help feed the children of...
