What Will Happen to Her Now?

By Connie Blaylock How I would describe my volunteer activities with The Net, in their work here in Fort Worth, Texas? I am an ordinary person, doing ordinary things, but within a relationship that is both very unlikely and unordinary. I am an advocate for one woman in The Net’s RISE program, which works in […]

Haylee’s Story: Breaking the Chains of Anorexia

I have spent a majority of my life submitting to food as my slave master. I don’t really remember a time in which I’ve had a healthy relationship with food. Sure, some seasons have been better than others, but food has rarely felt like one of God’s good gifts to me. I have looked to […]

TO BRAZIL AND BACK

By Heather Fitzgerald I stepped off the plane in Brazil with three hours of sleep and a set of cankles as large as my luggage.

Kaynenn to East Fort Worth

By Kaynenn Parker At the end of 2015 the Lord began to ruffle the feathers of my heart. A feeling I’d had several years earlier, but not one that was normative for me. I didn’t immediately know what it was, but I knew it was big. I was a little nervous, so I called my […]

TCU: My Story of How God Saved Me in College

by Austin Boyles, partner at The Paradox Church My story isn’t exactly simple. It doesn’t involve youth groups or church camp. I wasn’t saved when I was a kid. Don’t get me wrong, there is absolutely nothing wrong with those stories, and it is nothing short of miraculous for the God of the universe to […]
