The Dad I Never Knew

The death of Rev. Daniel Humbert's dad taught him the meaning of leaving boldly:  My dad died 24 years ago at the age of 59. We were both far too young for him to die. For him it was a chronological thing, for me it was a maturity thing. He died of colon cancer. It was six months from diagnosis to death. His death, however, is the reason I have already had 3 colonoscopy procedures and another on the horizon! My dad never knew either of my children and... Read More

The Older I Get, The Less I Know

Rev. Doug Meyer gets personal as he shares his own blind spots that stunt his knowledge growth. He is learning humbly: I spent the first half of my life gathering information. I learned all sorts of things, from the basics of life to career fundamentals to the challenges of relationships to what foods I should not eat late in the evening. Then one day I hit a tipping point (or a wall). I realized I did not know as much as I thought I knew.  There is much more that I do not know... Read More

Little Einsteins Learn Humbly

Randee Paraskevopoulos's 6th grade Confirmation group reminded her how to learn humbly: Working with kids and youth is not where I like to serve. That’s just a nice way to say I really don’t like it. I stood up in worship a while back when we studied spiritual gifts and admitted kids are not my comfort zone and definitely not my passion.  The only exception I’ve made is to work with each of my daughters as they went through Confirmation – a year-long study that ends with the 6th...

Confessions of a 27-Year-Old Idiot

I’m 27 years old and I don’t know how to love completely. This is a public confession from me to you. Please read it as a confession and not as a political stance, official position of Trietsch or a marketing ploy. This is me, Alyssa Robinson.    When I was a teenager, I knew everything. Just ask my parents (shout out to the real MVPs – Denise & Chris Robinson). I knew what I believed. I knew where I was going in life. I knew I didn’t need advice... Read More

My Pets Taught Me to Love

Karen Chraska strives to love completely like her pets do with such ease. Join us this Sunday at 8, 9:30 or 11 am as we learn to love together: I am a total animal lover. For the past 6 months the screen saver on my cell phone has been a photo of my “babies,” not the kind with 2 legs but 4. Currently we have 2 enormous dogs, 2 sweet cats, 10 pet chickens and 7 baby chicks. Our pets give me great pleasure and serve as a great stress reliever, but most of all in simple ways they convey...

Be Passionate. Be Present.

Clay Horton shares what living passionately is really about: Why walk down a hall if you can run?  Why talk when you can shout?  Why limit the size of your bite with a fork when you can get so much more food in your mouth by using your whole hand? I envy the passion that my 3 and 4 year old children have for all aspects of life. While it makes life busy, loud, and messy most of the time, I hope my children can always live passionately.  Pre-schoolers are “all...

Just One Word

Trisha McWilliams prays for a word from God each year to focus on. Read what she's learned about herself: A few years ago, I was so blessed to hear Jon Gordon speak at an Early Childhood Education Conference. He had such passion in his motivational talk that it intrigued me to learn more about his speaking. As I searched his website, I came across the One Word book he had written. After reading the book just before Christmas, the Lord placed it on my heart to begin praying about... Read More
