This is Mrs. Breshears, Anna’s 3rd grade teacher. She’s an incredible woman with a huge heart.
I’m reminded again here on the last day of school what a difference our teachers make in the lives of our kids. Such an important job, done with much grace. Teachers, THANK YOU for all you do!

I love serving in my local church. Seeing people worship their creator with passion, and live in rich community together is so meaningful to me.
Being a part of this family for these past seven years has been, and continues to be an incredible privilege. Grateful.

Had such a great weekend @ccvonline with some life-long friends celebrating Mother’s Day. Inspiring musicians. Inspiring people. Thanks again for sharing your gifts with our community this weekend @grovesroad!

Faithful, strong, compassionate. An amazing woman right here and I’m so proud to call her Mom. I’ll forever be grateful for the investment she has made and continues to make in my life and in the lives of so many others who are fortunate enough to know her. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!

A great few days in Austria with our missions team from @ccvonline. These are graduates of TCM International Institute who received their Masters degree this weekend. 14 nations represented from all around the world. Passionate, humble leaders, with a heart to serve others and make a difference in their home countries.

Had a great time with Col. Bob McCutchen at Luke Air Force Base getting a tour of their facilities. Over 30 years of leadership, training, and service to our country. Inspiring.

I was hanging with some good friends recently and we were talking about the importance of ‘playing the long game’ in life and in what you set your hands to do. A brief, but profound turn in the conversation came for all of us when it was mentioned that the ‘long game’ is actually the only one there is. There are in fact no other options.

It struck me.

One life. One story with sometimes wildly different chapters that fill it. Every day a gift. Every day an opportunity to live with an open heart and clear purpose. With every change of season, change of direction, change in relationships - May God give us the grace to run it with all of our might, in a way that builds up and brings strength to those we run alongside.

Incredible weekend @ccvonline celebrating the resurrection of Jesus! It never gets old seeing people put their faith and trust in the One who is mighty to save. “If anyone is in Christ, they are a new creation. Old things pass away, and all things are made new!” 📷 @joanna_polling
