Music to My Ears in Nashville

Loving the Prodigal Home

Chief Financial Officer. The job title alone can be a little intimidating. It might conjure images of a serious, somewhat gruff individual who’s more interested in numbers than people. I’m happy to say that Focus’ CFO, Dan Mellema, is nothing like the caricature would suggest.

What’s the Best Christian Response to the Mistreatment of Homosexuals?

In various countries around the world, homosexuals are being beaten and even killed with their governments’ approval. For example, in Nigeria, a recent law criminalizing homosexuality provides punishments, like whippings, to men who are caught having homosexual relations.

Are Some Christians Really Supporting “Homosexual Jim Crow Laws?”

It should come as no surprise that sometimes well-meaning, sincere Christians can disagree with each other on how to best live out their faith. Sometimes, those differences can run deep.

The Disney Channel recently introduced a subplot involving a lesbian couple to its popular children’s show, “Good Luck Charlie.” The storyline involved Charlie’s parents trying to remember the name of their daughter’s friend’s mom.

You may have already heard the heartbreaking news: Belgium’s parliament voted in favor of a bill allowing euthanasia for terminally ill children without any age limit. Experts expect King Philippe to sign the bill into law. The move comes only 12 years after Belgium legalized euthanasia for adults. It was a fast tumble down the slippery slope.

VIDEO: Skiing with My Boys

In Friday’s post, I mentioned the need to keep the fun in our marriages. Even as we juggle the many challenging aspects of married life, it’s good to find things to laugh about. Not only is laughter good for the soul (Proverbs 17:22), but I also think it’s God’s perfect medicine.

A Valentine’s Message: Be Joyful and Have Fun

A Christian woman a few years into her marriage once reflected back on the days leading up to her wedding: “As excited as we were to start our new life together, my husband and I were also a little fearful. We had heard from so many Christian couples, and in so many sermons, about how difficult and challenging marriage is. You can’t help but think, ‘Am I crazy to go through with this?’”
