Rest, Bond, and Heal

By Craig Denison | Posted December 12, 2018

I’ve been home all this past week enjoying the birth of my new baby boy, Wells. And as I’ve been holding him in the still hours of the morning, I have been relishing this time to step back, focus on my family, and allow God to speak. While we were in the hospital, and I […]

Encountering Everyday Epiphanies

By Craig Denison | Posted November 20, 2018

In all the busyness, Thanksgiving totally hit me by surprise this week. It seems like all of the sudden it’s cold outside, the leaves are changing, miraculously the Cowboys are somehow relevant again, and Rachel is asking me what we want to cook for our family’s Thanksgiving celebration. And as I pause for a moment […]

God Over All I Don’t Know

By Rachel Denison | Posted October 18, 2018

This year I’ve been in a season filled with questions – facing new unknowns. And my heart can’t help asking, “How, Lord?” (Luke 1:34). My questions range from theology to unknowns I face in my future. I’ve found myself shameful in the midst of my questions, and even doubts. Time and time again, I would […]

Living On Purpose

By Craig Denison | Posted October 4, 2018

Earlier this week I had the privilege of speaking to a wonderful group of 300 medical leaders from the Hendrick Health Care System. They asked me to come present some thoughts on what it looks like to live missionally – how to live with a clearer knowledge of the “why” behind the “what.” With how […]

How are you doing?

By Rachel Denison | Posted September 13, 2018

Have you ever been asked how you’re doing and had no idea how to respond? I have been in that place for months now. It goes a little something like this: Friend: “Hey girl! How are you doing? How have you been? (Crickets…) Me: “Oh, you know… good I guess? Actually, I don’t know to […]

Pause and Dream

By Craig Denison | Posted September 6, 2018

This past Saturday we ended our summer campaign, and I have been totally blown away by the reality of over 600 people giving graciously so that more people can have a guide to God’s presence every morning. And all this generosity really got me praying and thinking. Heading into the fall is a unique opportunity […]

How Do You See God?

By Craig Denison | Posted June 14, 2018

“Pray then like this: ‘Our Father in heaven…’” (Matthew 6:9). Maybe the most profound shift Jesus made in the way we see God is found in these first words of The Lord’s Prayer. For those of us who grew up within Christianity, or even were aware of the basic tenets of the faith, the idea […]

Motherhood

By Rachel Denison | Posted May 11, 2018

My hope for this Mother’s Day blog is to be open and real about what motherhood looks like for me in this season. Don’t worry, there are positive, feel-good vibes toward the end! But it is my hope that moms reading would feel validated and known, seen and understood, and maybe have a good laugh. […]

Stepping Off the Tightrope

By Rachel Denison | Posted March 5, 2018

I’m pretty hard on myself – probably too hard. I’m your textbook perfectionist. And I’m learning it’s the height of idolatry to even think I could or should achieve perfection. And yet, subconsciously, I do. I don’t go around thinking specifically in my head, “Oh, Rachel. You know, you really are perfect.” It more comes […]

Ending Your Day Well

By Craig Denison | Posted February 20, 2018

Growth in God is best looked at through the lens of seasons. At the beginning of a season I usually sense God presenting me with a main goal, an area of my life he wants to redeem and restore. And the growth I experience is usually related to the depth at which I give myself […]
