[This article is the Foreword by Kris Vallotton for James W. Goll’s book, Tell Your Heart to Sing Again.] Historically, the church has not always excelled at walking with people through their pain. We know how to rejoice with those who rejoice, yet we often fall short of Christ’s standard when it comes to mourning with those who mourn. Our Savior wept with his bereaved friends at the tomb of Lazarus, yet many Christians today are more likely to respond to tragedy with poorly reasoned explanations, weak attempts to cheer, or dark hints that the mourners should have had more [...]

The Battle of Fear Versus Faith

By |2022-02-17T11:18:17-06:00February 17th, 2022|Recent Articles|0 Comments

A Battle is being waged in society. It is one that affects every life whether we are aware of it or not. It is a battle of Fear versus Faith. Who controls the New Cycle? There is a vomiting forth of news based on distorted information that is forced upon us on a daily basis. Problem is, this has been happening for more than a generation and now we are eating its fruit. Long ago, a Trojan Horse was allowed in our churches, government, educational institutions, news agencies, economic systems, and so much more. But it’s not too late. A [...]

10 Essential Guardrails for Hearing God’s Voice

In the journey of hearing God's voice today effectively and accurately, you need the practical and personal work of the Holy Spirit. Jesus clearly told his followers that those who hear His words and put them into practice are wise! "Whoever hears these sayings of Mine and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on a rock. And the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house. And it did not fall, for it was founded a rock" (Matt. 7:24–25). To avoid error in the day [...]

Courageous and Prophetic Women of Faith, Part 2 (New Testament & Beyond)

By |2021-04-15T16:58:42-05:00April 15th, 2021|Recent Articles|0 Comments

In the New Testament, we find many women who display aspects of every gift of the Spirit whether or not they were aware of it. For example, take the Samaritan woman at the well, whose name is lost to history (see John 4:7–29). Jesus singled her out and she is considered by many to be the first true evangelist in the Bible. When she told the townspeople the Good News about the Christ, many of them believed. Consider Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist and cousin of Mary, the mother of our Lord Jesus. Both of these devout women [...]

Courageous and Prophetic Women of Faith, Part 1 (Old Testament)

By |2021-04-01T16:42:12-05:00April 1st, 2021|Recent Articles|0 Comments

Women have been faithful and courageous champions over the centuries, for the whole history of the people of God. We do not know about as many of them as we could, because the (largely male) history-writers have ignored or minimized their accomplishments. Naturally, another reason we don't know about all the great women of the past is that many of them were restricted from taking leadership. To some extent, this is still the case, which makes women’s accomplishments all the more notable. We are all supposed to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God (see 1 Peter 5:6). [...]
