Celebrating
Everyday
Faithfulness

True success is not seen in standards set by those whose focus is themselves. No, our Savior sets success in unexpected spaces, revealed in His Word: faithfully serving Christ, wherever He calls, because GREAT IS HIS FAITHFULNESS.

Less recognized. More demanding. Finding meaning moment by moment, compounded over decades. Serving at the breakfast table and hospital bedside. Influencing in the company boardroom and child’s bedroom. Trusting in the hardest moments. Persevering despite challenges. Choosing faithfulness, when no human sees. Doing the hardest jobs, when no applause echoes. Success happens when we follow faithfully.

Dear Friends,

We want to make a difference. We want to matter. And most of all, we want to succeed. What does that mean, though? Our passions drive us, and our insecurities haunt us. It would be a tragedy to spend a lifetime climbing the ladder of success only to find that it was resting against the wrong wall.
