    Can You Magnify God in the Midst of the Mundane?

    by Heather Bock Thank You, God, for this beautiful day. Thank You for the amazing sunset that ended it. Thank You for the house we live in…although, hold on…I’m not so thankful for the expensive problem we have with drainage right now–water that runs right under our driveway, creating a tunnel that threatens the integrity of our concrete. Please help us to figure out what to do about it. Thank You for our kids, but wait a second, God, these kids are driving me crazy–can You please help me teach them to obey somehow…before our cats are suffocated from over-loving squeezes?

Jeremiah Richard was the man’s name, six…

    Breaking the Brokenness of the Cycle of Poverty: Part Two

    by Heather Bock Two Sundays ago, God broke my heart for the poor in my city (which I wrote about last week here). I asked Him, “What are you going to do for those struggling with poverty?” I have been working through Steadfast Love, a Bible study written by Lauren Chandler focusing on Psalm 107. It’s a good study, but for some reason, God hadn’t been using it in my life too much. I couldn’t relate to the application up to that point.
