Meet God-Sized Dreamer, Morgan Cooper

Many times God-sized dreamers are born from unexpected or even heart-breaking events. God takes away what a dreamer thought he wanted simply to build up a burden and desire for a new dream far greater than he had anticipated. Our first God-sized dreamer is a prime example of this. Let me introduce you to Morgan Cooper—the Director of Ministry Development …

Becoming a God-Sized Dreamer

When I read Holley Gerth’s devotional book “Opening the Door to Your God-Sized Dream,” I knew it was time to stop sitting on the sidelines of my own God-sized dreams and finally get in the game.

5 Reasons Why Adults Need “Besties” Too

  Life without friendship would be like a cake with no icing—boring and quite frankly, pretty ugly. When I think on my time as a child, I remember ever so fondly Friday night sleepovers and trips to the roller-skating rink with my very best friend. As a teenager, I remember ball games and hangouts at the mall with the closest …

The gentle, steady sound of running water and the warmth and comfort of steam wrapping its arms around you were two very welcome friends in the midst of the morning you were having. But that sweet moment of peace was gone as quickly as it came when two little feet came barreling into this sacred …

So You Think You Are #blessed

Sometimes, out of curiosity, I will do a search on popular hashtags on Twitter and Instagram just to see what comes up. One hashtag I searched was #blessed, and, let me tell you, it was quite interesting what I found.
