    Why Acts of Kindness Matter: A Story of Serendipity and a NICU Baby

    How Our Healthy Boy Became a NICU Baby On June 25th of this year I had no clue what Acts of Kindness would be coming my way shortly thereafter. I was sitting in my weekly Prenatal appointment at my OB’s office. I was officially 36 weeks pregnant and was ready to hear how everything was progressing.

What I didn’t know was that God was going to teach me a whole lot about keeping score.  I was feeling good. I had it all together, was totally on top of this running thing, and…

    Where Can He Find Us: What Yoga Taught me About My Christianity

    Yoga I am a yogi. In other words, I practice yoga. Sure, I’ve been told I can’t say this. I’ve been told I’m practicing an Eastern religion, that yoga isn’t Christian enough, that yoga “distracts me from God,” or that it may become “idol worship.” Duly noted. I am a yogi. And I love it. I find Jesus on my mat, and I don’t think that’s crazy at all. Yoga is exciting to me. Every day is a new challenge, a new asana (pose), and a new intensive workout. I struggle on my mat. I fall, I get back up, I fall again. I work on the same pose for…
