Are We Using Our Gifts As God Intended?

The morning of July 4th, 2015, I'm using my laptop at my kitchen table, a place I don't typically sit for laptop matters. This day, however, it is there that I return to LiveLiving's Facebook page to meditate on this post for a bit: I eventually remove myself from the kitchen table for a moment. [...]

Meet “Reconciliation”

When I started on this journey, I thought I understood reconciliation. Now, I realize I knew basically nothing. I was right about this one part: Forgiveness is different from reconciliation; it is the next level. And you and I thought forgiveness is hard, well, meet reconciliation.

What’s the Key to Family Reconciliation?

There are always going to be problems, challenges, and conflicts in families. After all, look at what happened, in the very first “first family,” between the brothers Cain and Abel (Gen. 4:8).
