Willing to Be Blessed in New York City

On a weekday afternoon some years ago, I was sitting alone in my small one-bedroom apartment on Manhattan’s west side when someone buzzed me from down­stairs. As I wasn’t expecting a visitor, I assumed it was the post­man seeking admission to the building. I made my way over to the front door of my flat and pressed the button on the intercom. “Yes?” “Hello. I work for the television show Law & Order. We’re doing some location scouting for some in­terior scenes, and I wonder if you might be willing to let me see your apartment.” Here was an unexpected request. I live on a lovely block in a ..read more

I sat in my car at the school bus stop, waiting for my 14-year-old daughter, my heart racing with anxiety. “God, please let Kennedi be on that bus,” I whispered. That morning, when I dropped her off at the bus stop, she stormed out of the car, shouting tearfully, “I hate my life, and you just don’t understand! I’m not coming home after school!” It had been like that for weeks. All of a sudden, my considerate and high-achieving daughter was talking back to my husband, Kenny, and me. Being dishonest. Telling me she hated her life and thought I was a terrible mom. The changes started after Christ ..read more

Elizabeth Sherrill: Remembering a Guideposts Legend
Guideposts Magazine

9M ago
Elizabeth Sherrill (February 14, 1928—May 20, 2023), affectionately known as Tib or Tibby, recently passed away at the age 95.  What a remarkable woman she was and a profound influence on the Guideposts stories and devotionals we know today. She was after all a brilliant storyteller. It seems appropriate that she was born on Valentine’s Day because she exuded love. For her family, for her colleagues, for the subjects of the countless stories she wrote and edited, for Guideposts readers, for her faith community, for God’s beautiful world and the people in it. A founding contributor, it’s h ..read more

The best advice you’ve ever gottenIt was from Willard Scott. The first thing he said was, “Always be yourself. People can do whatever they want, but they can’t take that from you. Everybody wants to be somebody else; just be you.” And the other one was, “Never give up your day job.” People always have these side hustles, and that’s great, but remember where you really make your money and where you find the most joy. Willard was the king of the side hustle long before anybody used that term. He had a birthday farm. He did freelance work. But the whole time, he was either the weatherman for WRC ..read more

“Is it going to be just you and me again tonight, Mom?” My 10-year-old son, Nathan, watched me set a pan of lasagna on our kitchen table—a pan big enough to feed our family of seven. “Yep, you and me, buddy,” I said, trying to keep the disappointment out of my voice. It was 7 P.M. Nathan’s siblings, all teenagers or older, were either working or out with friends. My husband, Eric, was still at the office. As usual. “Is Dad ever going to eat with us?” Nathan asked. “Sure,” I said, forcing myself to sound upbeat. I felt the opposite. I was way beyond disappointed. It was all I could do to concea ..read more

If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:8-9 If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not live according to the truth; but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light , we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:6-7 Help us, God our Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver us and forgive our sins for your name’s sake.

How Terry Crews Discovered His True Superpower

If you’ve seen me on television—on America’s Got Talent, Brooklyn Nine-Nine or Everybody Hates Chris, for example—or in movies such as The Expendables, you know I’m known for my big muscles and alpha swagger. Yeah, I bought into that hype too. Sure, the image allowed me to support my wife, Rebecca, and our five kids in style. But it went deeper—and darker. What I couldn’t let anyone—even myself—see was that inside I felt inadequate and vulnerable, like the seven-year-old boy I used to be. A boy who was desperate for his parents to stop fighting, desperate for his father’s love. I grew up in Fl ..read more
