It’s Holy Week! Over the coming days we will remember the final week in the life of Jesus. May you encounter Christ through prayer and the scriptures in a fresh, new, and life-changing way.

My daughter, Hailey, turns 5-years-old this weekend. She is going up quickly. Too quickly. Hailey is my family’s exercise instructor. We have to stay in shape to keep up with her!  I love her beyond words. I am very proud of her. And I pray that she would grow as Jesus grew (Luke 2:52).

The Bible Exposition Conference is coming up in April. It has been my privilege to speak at this conference the past several years. Always a blessing.

My new book, It Happens After Prayer, will be released on May 1. But you can pre-order it here and here.

Congratulations to Pastor Bryan Carter and the Concord Church as they celebrate the completion of their new church facilities.
