Our Stories

Landmarks in our lives become the pillars that shape the structure of our stories. The time you met your best friend, the moment you came to faith in Christ, the day you met your spouse, the birth of your children, the time you landed that dream job. These are moments of great significance. But among moments of significance also exist moments of tragedy. The time you lost your parent, the day the business collapsed, the month you foreclosed on your home, the day your disease was diagnosed. These are the deeper, darker places in our lives that build the sturdy places that contribute to the foundation and the structure of our stories. But together, between moments of glory and moments of tragedy, our stories take shape. And I am confident that when their foundations are built on Christ, they will be shaped well.

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
-Romans 8:28
