“You may believe in God, but never forget – it’s God who believes in you. Every morning that the sun rises and you get to rise? That’s God saying He believes in you, that He believes in the story He’s writing through you. He believes in you as a gift the world needs.”
~ Ann Voskamp
What greater way to be fortified than to know that you were created for a purpose, by a loving God who desires the best for you. To be forthright, Forti-fy will be representing the Christian worldview. Regardless of your race, gender, education or vocational background, we all bear the imago dei, the image of God. He is the author of our human essence and thus we are equal in dignity and have intrinsic value.
To the skeptic, of which many of us were, and those of different faiths, we invite you to bring your questions – or just sit back and listen to the conversation. Examine the evidence and make your own assessments. Understandably, you may not agree, but hopefully you will have a better understanding of the Christian message and how it answers the fundamental questions of life.
One of the things that was very helpful for me after Kyle’s death was to be able to reach out and talk with other moms who knew what it felt like to be walk down the road that was now in front of me – and help me to look for the light in the dark moments
My friend, Trish Richhart, was one of those moms. She lost her 8 year-old son, Samuel, after a 3 year battle with cancer.
At some point in their lives, this is probably a question many women ask.
Trish gives us a good reminder here.
This prayer of Christ’s holds special significance for me. As my own son was barely clinging to life in a hospital ICU, I was also begging God in prayer.
I wrote this for Kyle.
Addressing the hard questions of Christianity.
People aren’t denying truth exists, they simply don’t care.
Awaken to the wonder of now – the wonder of the small. Staying awake to this one wild and beautiful life.
The answer to this question has huge implications.
