This is a letter I wrote on International Women's Day. Even though the "girl gene" skipped our family, it's important my four boys know and understand the responsibility they have as men in this world.
I’m experimenting a bit this week and instead of typing out the Scripture, I’ve taken screen shots from my ESV Study Bible (by permission) and highlighted words that came alive to me as I read them. I would encourage you to get your Bible out, too. There’s something about the tangibleness of paper and the texture of the pages that offer us an unexpected perspective.

Christ’s love for us drove Him to action. Love cannot exist without action.
