I'm always amazed by the permission culture gives us to comment on other people's bodies.


The Most Stressful Part of Sundays

I would rather write five sermons than lead the children's lesson at church.

Learning New Languages

Emily C. Heath

Every year on Pentecost Sunday I get the feeling that the church misses the point.


Chosen Family

Emily C. Heath

Our families teach us who we are, and who we can be. And sometimes God creates families for us in the most amazing ways. 


Laughable

Emily C. Heath

When I work with the children and youth of my church, I'm always aware of the power I hold to shape their futures. I try to remember that an off-hand comment might squelch a kid's dream.

Emily C. Heath

Emily C. Heath

A Culture of Character

Emily C. Heath

There's nothing wrong with being yourself, and being proud about it.
