Demystifying the Enneagram | Redemptive Postures Series

Demystifying the Enneagram | Redemptive Postures Series

You've probably heard someone talking about the Enneagram recently and how knowing their number has helped them grow personally. The Enneagram has grown in popularity in Christian circles in recent years, but many people still have questions about what it is and where it came from.

How to Find Your Chaco Size

How to Find Your Chaco Size

Chacos are well known for their adjustable straps and bright colors. The sandals only come in whole sizes, leading to some confusion for those that typically wear a half size. Typically the advice is, if you wear a half size to go down to the next whole size for Chacos. For many people that simple rule of sizing will get them in the right Chaco size. However sizing Chacos is much more than just going down to a whole size. Chacos are sized by the heel-to-ball measurement instead of overall foot length like most shoes.

What Christians need to know about going to the Chiropractor | Redemptive Postures Series

Chiropractic care is one of the most mainstream alternative health treatments in our culture. Though it is widely embraced, if you have never been to a chiropractor yourself, you probably have some questions about what a typical visit is like and if there are any spiritual concerns you should be aware of.

Will God abandon me in my pain? | A Big Easter Question

Will God abandon me in my pain? | A Big Easter Question

The Easter story is one that Christians and non-Christians alike know well. Christ was crucified on a cross and rose again three days later. While we know the story well, we often miss what is actually in scripture and what is common doctrine. In our songs and liturgy, our story times, and common theology we have taught that at the moment of Christ's death God turned His face away. That all of heaven looked away. We build theology and explanations around why a loving God would abandon His Son and look away. But what if none of these contrived explanations were necessary? What if God doesn't need us to defend His actions?

Christians and Flower Essences: Fear of the Unknown | Redemptive Postures Series

Christians and Flower Essences: Fear of the Unknown | Redemptive Postures Series

One thing Christian culture tends to do horribly well is being afraid of the unknown. It seems that anything natural health or quantum physics that doesn't make sense to your average evangelical often gets labeled New Age, without any real understanding of what that term means. While I have not really heard any objections to flower essences, I know that the unfamiliar can raise concerns and I want to help you understand instead of fear. Scripture tells us that we have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). So while we do want to be diligent in our research and understanding of alternative health topics (making the unknown known), we don't need to be afraid of anything. It is so sad to think how many good things that God made for our benefit we are missing out on because we are afraid of the unknown.

Why I’m not Memorizing Scripture this Year

Why I’m not Memorizing Scripture this Year

Memorizing scripture is a good and helpful spiritual discipline but for many it isn't producing the spiritual fruit they had hoped. So before you call me a heretic, let me explain why I'm not memorizing scripture this year, and what I am doing instead.

Clean Eating with the Dirty Dozen

Clean Eating with the Dirty Dozen

The dirty dozen might sound like a band of outlaws in a western movie, but they are actually a list of fruits and vegetables found to have the highest levels of pesticide residues. Each year the Environmental Working Group (EWG) compiles a list of the the 48 most common fruits and vegetables and ranks them based on levels of pesticide residues. The twelve with the highest presence of pesticide residues are the dirty dozen, and those with the lowest levels are the clean fifteen.

What The Shack says about the Healing Journey

What The Shack says about the Healing Journey

With all the controversy surrounding The Shack, both book and now movie, I've had several people ask me to share my thoughts on it. While I certainly have some thoughts I could share, I find thoughts are often best conveyed by those who have personal experience with an issue rather than just academic knowledge of it. Many have shared their academic knowledge. Few have shared how the book/movie has impacted their story.
