The Intersection; What’s Your Code?

Written by Bob Crittendon

The news shocked the world of college basketball, just weeks before that annual tradition known as “March Madness” was set to begin. Brigham Young University was strategically placed in the Top 10, enjoying a high level of success, which was threatened by the suspension of one of its star players, center Brandon Davies.

On Cancer and Marriage…

Written by Mike & Lisa Conn

Last month, Doyle Powell expressed thankfulness to his First Baptist Sunday school class for the many calls, cards, casseroles, and prayers.  He couldn’t count the number of people who had contacted them since Lisa, his bride of 31 years, was diagnosed with endometrial cancer three days prior.  They were so thankful their friends were lifting them up daily—asking our heavenly Father for complete healing of Lisa’s body.  In fact, Doyle and Lisa were clinging to this lifeline of prayer.

Celebrating God's Word

Written by Bob Crittendon

Over 400 years ago, a group of theologians gathered at the request of King James I of England to craft an English translation of the Bible that would be available on a widespread basis. The King James Version has become one of the most influential books of all time, containing the truth of the Scriptures, and also certain phrases which have become part of the common English language. This year, we celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the culmination of that 7-year process to translate the Scriptures, resulting in what we know as the King James Bible, in 1611.

If so, how do you compare? As women, we tend to measure ourselves against each other. We examine and take note of our similarities and differences on a daily basis and in a myriad of areas. Think about a few areas where women tend to compare themselves to others.

    Essentialism

    by Greg McKeown

     

    Life is complicated. Life is full of responsibilities and opportunities, planned duties and serendipitous possibilities. There is so much we could do, but so little we can do. Many of us battle our whole lives to focus on those few, significant items that we should do must do, and yet so few of us ever feel like we are even nearly succeeding.

Faith at Work

  • Keon Addison, School Teacher and Fitness Coach, Unleashed Potential

     

    RRJ:  Was there a specific moment in your life where you understood Jesus as Savior and Lord, or did that happen gradually?

     

    Keon:  I was raised in church because my mom was a Christian and pianist at five different churches in Mississippi. (Back then, church was only open one Sunday a month.)

    I was baptized at an early age, but it wasn’t until I was 17 and my friends invited me to their youth retreat called DiscipleNow, hosted by First Baptist Church, that I truly believed. The youth minister, Troy Amster, gave an invitation. During that moment I felt God’s presence like never before. I accepted Him in my heart and that’s when I drew closer to Him. I received Him as my Father, Savior and Lord.
