  This is an article that my wife Melissa and I have written together as the result of our experiences working in many different workplace settings.

Three Ways to Maintain Healthy Community

Having a relationship with Jesus is a journey filled with highs and lows. The joy we have is eternal, but this doesn’t mean that we will never experience tough times. In fact, Jesus tells us explicitly that it will be this way. I believe that is why the New Testament puts so much emphasis on […]
