What’s on the Stack at the Farm
“Faith makes all things possible . . . love makes all things easy…
“We don’t stray away from good doctrine or truth by focusing on justice and compassion for those in the margins – rather, we find Jesus and truth in the margins.”
“We were created not for earth but for eternity. We were created not to be Liked but to show love. We were created not to draw attention to ourselves but to give glory to God. We were created not to collect followers but to follow Christ.” Pick up Struggles — or give it to your teens.

Our family and yours could get to do this together! Come love Lilah Lu.

… yeah, that’s what happens when you get pushed out of the shallow end.
When you find yourself in the real deep end —
that’s when you know He’s real.
So, I don’t know — maybe it’s okay to say adios to playing & splashing about in the shallow end.
Live where you can’t touch bottom — swallow God.
That’s all for this weekend, friends.
