ITeam: She Puts in a Full Day

She gets up before everyone else and begins another day. Most days, her first meeting is with God; a few moments while the coffee is brewing or while it is still and quiet. Still and quiet will melt away in a matter of minutes and it won’t be that way again for 14-16 hours, when […]

ITeam: Life – What the Zoweh Logo Means

It was summer 2003 when the very beginnings of Zoweh were formed. It started with a holy discontent for where Robin and I were. God had begun to unhinge us from our current roles and assignments.

ITeam: Being Fathered

God has often fathered me as I father my kids. It’s an easy place for him to get our attention as men, we think about, pray about, are concerned about our kids… they are “constantly on our hearts and minds.” It’s part of the Dad job. This morning, I was launching some prayers over and for them, journaling to God my […]
