  • Are You Cindy Lou Who?

    December 10, 2017

    My favorite Christmas movie is ‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas’ starring Jim Carey. I’ve watched it an embarrassingly amount of times. There’s just something about that sweet Cindy Lou Who and the Grinch that intrigues me. And let’s face it, the rhyming and whimsical effects are pretty amazing too! While all the Who’s in Whoville are […]

  • Choose

    December 6, 2017

    Mark 1:1 says, The beginning of the good news of Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God. We talk a lot about good news, especially at this time of the year, as we remember God becoming flesh and living among us. Not only was Christ good news, His good news message was meant to be […]

  • My Thanksgiving Reflection

    November 28, 2017

    For the second year in a row, our Thanksgiving service at Fair Haven will go down as one of my favorites ever. I just love the traditions built into that service that help us say thank you to God. In so many ways, I see the words of Genesis 12 lived out in our Worship […]

  • When God is Bigger Than Our Expectations

    November 21, 2017

    A few weeks back I went up north on a solo expedition to Traverse City and the Sleeping Bear Dunes. I really had been looking forward to reading, journaling, and drinking good coffee all while enjoying God’s beautiful creation. Throughout the weekend I learned a lot about my expectations of God’s will. My first time […]

  • Created with Imago Dei

    November 13, 2017

    So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. -Genesis 1:27 A lot has been on my mind recently as my wife and I have prepared our home and our hearts for our first born (a son). By the time that you read […]

  • Can Preschoolers Really Worship?

    October 30, 2017

    Have you ever found yourself wondering that very question? I’ve been on staff serving in the Early Childhood Coordinator role for eight months now. Certainly, it has crossed my mind as I’ve spent countless hours prepping for lessons, do these activities really matter? Are these 3’s, 4’s and Young Fives really getting something from this […]

  • Narrow View of New

    October 29, 2017

    So, I have to confess something to you – this was not the plan. But plans change, right? You wrestle in prayer and through the process of discerning the still small voice that seems to get louder and louder until you are beyond compelled to respond, and then you jump! But you don’t land at […]

  • Celebrating The Wins

    October 25, 2017

    Everybody likes to win. Celebrate the wins. Nothing will shape the culture of the organization you lead quite like celebrating the right thing. It was over 20 years ago that I listened to a leader I highly respect state the previous sentences so many times that they stuck. So, what is happening that is worth […]

  • Grateful

    October 18, 2017

    As I sit to write this post, I have a couple things running through my mind. First, I’m writing this shortly after my one year working anniversary here at Fair Haven. Second, I’m looking forward to bringing my family to Fall Fest this week, an event we host at Fair Haven for our community where […]

  • Be Curious

    October 10, 2017

    I never thought that at age 26, with an endless variety of movies, shows, and entertainment at my fingertips because of the internet, that I would end up watching so much of the show Curious George. And yet, here I am. I currently rent a room from the VanderKlock family in West Olive. Kevin is […]
