  • Not Home Yet

    March 21, 2017

    On March 4, a team of seven from Fair Haven boarded a plane for Uganda, East Africa. Uganda was hot, dry, and dusty. The sun was so intense it would start to cook our skin within ten minutes of exposure. The smells were foreign. The language was foreign. The customs were foreign. We ate something […]

  • Good and Perfect Purposes

    March 15, 2017

    One of my favorite passages in the Bible is Jeremiah 29:11, For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. Written for God’s people living in exile, the prophet Jeremiah provides a message of hope and reassurance […]

  • God is Greater

    March 7, 2017

    Joshua 1:9 says, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” How amazing is it that we have a God who is bigger than anything we could possibly face in this world? Every doubt, […]

  • Get in the Fight

    February 28, 2017

    I’ve learned a lot over the past six years of leadership at Fair Haven. But I’ll cut to the chase on the biggest lesson that I’ve learned: young people are effective fighters for Jesus. Much of our world claims that this generation mostly values themselves over anything. I get it, it’s easy to look at […]

  • FH Staff Blog: Cheerleaders

    February 14, 2017

    Though our girls are now eighteen and twenty-one, I have not forgotten how hard raising children can be. Truth-be-told, I remember being at my “wits end” some days. Putting my kids in timeout, only to retreat to my own timeout in tears of feeling like I was failing as a parent. I’m passionate about helping […]

  • FH Staff Blog: God Sees You

    February 7, 2017

    She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have seen the one who sees me.” Genesis 16:13 The “she” from the verse above was an Egyptian servant girl named Hagar. We don’t know her story before she became a servant, but I […]

  • FH Staff Blog: Transition

    February 1, 2017

    Life is filled with transitions. I have been thinking about that a lot. Some transitions are easy and some are painful. Some choose us and we choose others. It is in those transitions that change takes place. There are those who would even say that no real change takes place except during times of transition. […]

  • 21 Days of Fasting & Prayer

    January 26, 2017

    There’s this great story in John 3 where Jesus was having a conversation with Nicodemus, a Pharisee, one of the religious leaders of his time. The story begins with Nicodemus approaching Jesus… Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at […]

  • FH Staff Blog: Desiring More Fruit

    January 19, 2017

    It’s been a tradition over many years for my parents to give us one of those ginormous, decorated popcorn cans on our way out from our family Christmas party. You know the kind; delicious caramel, messy cheddar and the plain that gets eaten last! Well, this year they switched it up on us big time. […]

  • FH Staff Blog: Praying with Joy Because of You

    January 11, 2017

    Writing to the church in Philippi, the Apostle Paul penned these words.  I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in […]
