InterVarsity and Cheese Curds

Never in my life did I expect to be so excited to visit Madison, Wisconsin! I mean, I like cheese as much as the next guy, but I wasn’t thinking about America's Dairyland in my spare time. My internship with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, an...

Thanksgiving Reflections

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Christmas and Easter are change-your-life-forever markers on our lives each calendar year and I love these celebrations dearly for what they signify. But I’m embarrassed to admit each year Christmas seems to...

Your Kids and Technology

At the onset of the world wide web, few would have predicted the influence technology would have on our lives, much less the role it plays in our children’s lives. As the world adjusted to working from home, remote learning, and the importance of...

Why Garden at School?

There is something in all of us which longs for the garden. We are, after all, created in God’s image, out of dust, and to the dust we are destined to return. Our very bodies contain many of the same elements that are abundant in the “dust,”...
