  • He Is Risen!

    April 17, 2017

    This past Sunday, we gathered together to celebrate that Jesus Christ has risen. The tomb could not contain Him. Death itself could not contain Him. He is risen! I love Easter. I love it for everything it signifies. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 15:17, if Christ has not been raised, your faith if futile; you are […]

  • Vision, Hope, and Resurrection

    April 7, 2017

    Living without hope is a terrible thing. I have witnessed it in some of the poorest places on earth. I have read about it in books. Most of us have experienced it if only in a very small way. It’s that feeling we get when we think we will never get another chance or never […]

  • Open Up The Sky

    April 5, 2017

    Over the last couple of days, we have had some gloomy weather, along with some rainy days. And as I listened to the rain drops, I had this song stuck in my head. The song is called, Open Up The Sky, and the chorus of the song says: “Open up the sky, fall down like […]

  • Stop Being Anxious

    March 28, 2017

    “Stop being anxious.” “Don’t worry about it.” “Anxiety makes you stupid.” “Stop being afraid.” “Everything is going to be fine.” “Just quit thinking about it.” Have you ever had someone say phrases like that to you? It’s usually well intended, but not what you want to hear. Right? The more I see anxiety haunt young people, […]

  • 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 […]
