As we approach Easter, we are reminded of the profound message of hope and renewal that the resurrection of Jesus Christ brings to our lives. In Luke 24:46-47, Jesus shared with His disciples the fulfillment of prophecy:  “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.” This divine revelation unveils the heart of Easter—the triumph of love over sin, the victory of life over death.  In his book, Hope in Times of Fear, Ti ..read more

2023 has been such an exciting year for us as we recently welcomed a baby girl into our home! We were anxious to begin the adoption process in 2022 after struggling with infertility for over a year. After applying with Lifeline, and completing the required training, we became a waiting family in May of this year. In July, we received a call that we had been matched with a baby girl in North Carolina, not too far from where we live. This baby girl had a number of medical needs that were being cared for in the hospital. We were told to pack a bag for at least two nights, just in case we would s ..read more

We rest with assurance that the Prince of Peace gave up His rights and humbled Himself to come as a helpless baby so that He could pay the price for our sins – a debt we never could pay ourselves.   When sin entered the world in the garden, everything changed.
