From bedtime stories to long road trips to reading together as a family, the Storybook Bible is the perfect companion to the app they already love.
What an amazing experience launch we just had! Our 69th weekly Church Online service just debuted, and we all had a blast worshipping together, discussing a powerful message from Pastor Craig Groeschel, and praying for each other.

I am so grateful for the Stay Positive series because it’s true—life can be tough at times. And in those times, sometimes it takes more than just saying something nice, it requires a truth that fills our spirit with courage and hope.

It’s so hard seeing someone you care about continually make bad decisions that wreck their life. As an outsider, their errors can be really easy to see. Maybe you've even tried to offer help or advice to someone like this, but they never seem to listen. They think they know what they’re doing and it will all work out fine. But time and time and time again, they keep digging a deeper hole.
So, how often do we need encouragement, anyway? Is a yearly pat on the back from our employer good enough? Do our families need to hear kind words from us weekly? How needy are we, really? Turns out, we humans are pretty needy. We need food daily. We need sleep daily. Our hearts need encouragement daily, too.

Ludmila saw an opportunity to diversify and work smarter. She knew she'd be in her shop selling items every day. Why not take a leap of faith and offer some things that aren't office supplies to supplement the seasons when sales are slower? Summer - inflatable mattresses for people in her area welcoming guests into town. Winter - artificial Christmas trees and decorations. When we asked her how her leap of faith went, she said, "Praise God, we've nearly sold it all." Give credit where it's due - to God - when you've taken a leap of faith and He's provided. God used Ludmila to provide items her community needs, and He blessed her in the process, too.
Ludmila displayed a heart of gratitude for God's provision.
It’s easy to fall victim to always feeling like you never have enough. Everywhere I look today, I see the opportunity to get something that is better than what I have. It could be a car, a watch, a phone, a house or anything else money can buy. I don’t know about you but this sometimes causes me to not value what I currently have.
In this week's message, Pastor Craig challenged us to choose gratitude because God is the giver of all good things.
You and I have so much to be thankful for in this moment in time. We have breath in our lungs today. We've probably had a meal within the past few hours. We can use the Internet to make connections to and grow spiritually with other humans we'd never otherwise meet.
