Arizona Bound

|

I’m headed out to Arizona on a photo shoot (and to enjoy some spring baseball) so blog postings will be sporadic for the next week since I won’t have ready access to a computer. Enjoy your week, everyone! Hoping to have some interesting things to show you when I return.

Spring Has Sprung!

|

Even though it was a mild winter in many parts of the country, it was winter nonetheless. Not my favorite time of year. (Don’t get me wrong, I think snow is beautiful! It’s the snow removal part I don’t find so endearing…and here in northern New England, we’ve had enough snow the past few years … Continued

God is Willing to Guide

I read this somewhere years ago and jotted it down for safekeeping… So true! The image was captured at the Washington National Cathedral in our nation’s Capitol.

Freedom of Religion in Britain: Doublespeak at its Finest

|

If you think the talk lately about government intrusion on first ammendment religious freedom in this country is much ado about nothing, think again. The creeping anti-Christianity movement is alive and well worldwide. The latest example comes courtesy of the British government, which is supporting employers who wish to ban employees from wearing crosses at … Continued

A Look Behind our Personalized Christian Gifts…Literally!

|

Ever wonder what the flip side of our wall art looks like? Though the back of your wall art isn’t on display (it’s facing the wall, of course!) how the piece is finished makes a difference. This new video on our YouTube channel takes a closer look at what’s behind our plaques…. http://youtu.be/RTbdxWT1VlE    

23rd Psalm

|

If you’re a regular reader, you know I have a passion for landscape photography. Sometimes when I’m out in the field, I’ll see a scene that immediately conjures up a passage from Scripture. That happened a few years ago at the Chicago Botanic Garden when I came upon this setting: The first few verses of … Continued

Great Moments in Life

|

The great moments in life aren’t always the “biggest” moments. While things like graduation, wedding day, the birth of a child, winning the championship game, or landing a career-propelling project certainly constitute great moments, other experiences that might at first seem as though they’re just part of the everyday rhythm of life can end up having just as … Continued

Appreciation for Pastor

|

If asked to describe your pastor, you might use any number of words: teacher, leader, counselor, friend… This person – or other member of the ministry team – may have helped you through a difficult period in your life. Conversely, he might be cherished for presiding over an important occasion like baptism, confirmation, or a wedding. You … Continued

On Christ the Solid Rock, I Stand

|

If you’re ever in Sedona, Arizona, make sure you check out the Chapel of the Holy Cross. This stunning church, visible from some distance away, is literally built into the red rocks and looks down on the valley below. I shot this the first time I visited…as the sun lowered in the late-day sky, the rocks … Continued

Do Your Best

|

I heard this little saying in a sermon years ago…it stuck with me, as did the entire story that had to do with this central theme. (I saw it the other day in print which put it front of mind again.) It’s funny how some things – seemingly minor – can make such an impression … Continued

A Godparent Gift They’ll Cherish

|

When considering who you’ll choose as your baby’s Godparents, you know it’s an important decision. The bond between Godchild and sponsors is unique – and it’ll last a lifetime. (As Godmother to two nephews, I know this from personal experience. If you’re a Godparent, you know it, too!) As baptism day approaches, you might want … Continued
