The Greatest Gift You've Ever Received
What is the greatest gift you've ever received? Let's explore how the answer shapes our view of generosity.
Crazy Like Us - Week Three
What are you grateful for? No doubt you will be asked that question once or twice in the coming week, as Thanksgiving is just around the corner. This is an important question to answer when it comes to living a generous life. But there's one other question that's just as important: "What breaks your heart?" We wrap up our series, Crazy Like Us, and explore the power of these two questions to reframe our lives around generosity and make us happier.

What Makes You Happy? - You're Not Enough
Every time you open your laptop, scroll your phone, or turn on the TV, somebody you've never met from somewhere you’ve never been is telling you what makes you happy. With the constant barrage of marketing promises, it can be hard to distinguish between pleasure and happiness, and what will make our lives feel like 'enough.' Let's look at what Jesus – and maybe science – has to say about it!
What Makes You Happy? - No Thing
Wherever you are on your journey, the truth is we are desiring to be happy and live meaningful lives. The good news is we are not the only ones to struggle on the quest for happiness. In fact, Jesus' first sermon is all about finding happiness. And, Jesus turns "What Makes You Happy?" from a question into a statement.
Whether or not many people feel like they are preparing for a massive rhythm shift, it is a common experience in our lives to go through seasons of resetting, especially as Christians. Our entire journey is about sanctification and becoming, so resetting is constant.
