Sean Gould

When I was in college, God used a number of means to help me grow as a young Christian.

Charnock, Tozer, Packer, and Pink were all wise friends who gave me a fuller and more majestic view of God through their writings. Continue reading

Lilly Park

No Greater Promise: Rooting Our Significance, Security, and Rest in the Covenant Formula, Part 1

Joshua Hayward

Joshua Hayward

More often than not, when I begin a counseling process with people I feel overwhelmed by the apparent complexities of the issues. “Where do I begin? Do I talk about this, or that? What do I need to focus on? There’s so much to address!”
