Sometimes You Just Have to be Real

The last month has been a very trying one in our family. Although important to be upbeat, it is vital to be authentic.

If someone close to me asks how I am doing these days, I tell them.

Why respond to their question with “just fine” when life hurts?

In the body of Christ, let’s learn to be real with one another. Not doing so robs us of spiritual and relational intimacy. Sincere honesty matters to those who truly care.

About Our Dark Night of the Soul: Finding Solace Through Suffering

Our Dark Night of the Soul: Finding Solace Through Suffering shares the true story about a sudden family tragedy. As author of the book to be published in the summer of 2014, the true account tells of my sister being rear ended by a drunk driver. She barely survives the high speed crash being left to live as a quadriplegic. Written from a brother's perspective, the manuscript shares the heartfelt story of ongoing physical and emotional pain experienced by both victim and family. Only through God's grace can a family survive such a tragedy!
