  • 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 […]

  • 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: Divine Conversations

    August 11, 2016

    The culture in this world is ever changing. It’s becoming more and more challenging to get through even a week without hearing of some sort of tragedy, suffering or injustice. While dining at family restaurants such as Culver’s or Applebee’s, children are exposed to the world’s happenings on the TV screens, not to mention in their own […]

  • FH Staff Blog: Going to Dangerous Places

    August 5, 2016

    Most of us are risk averse. Safety matters to us. We don’t want our children playing in the middle of the street and we don’t want to move into the neighborhoods with the highest incidence of crime. We want our children to grow more independent but we are not real excited to give them the […]

  • Baptism Multi-Tasking

    July 28, 2016

    As St. Patrick was baptizing King Angus in Ireland in the middle of the 5th century, he inadvertently placed the pointed end of his staff on Angus’ foot. When Patrick then leaned on the staff, the king proceeded to bleed profusely, though suffering in silence. At the end of the ceremony, Patrick saw the king’s […]

  • VBS 2016

    July 22, 2016

    We had a huge number of children pre-register. There were another 150 who signed up at the door. We had seven children with special needs mixed in the crowd with their one-on-one mentors. Somebody asked me how many children were present. I looked at a sea of children seated in our worship center and I […]
