  • To Mike and Angela Rock, the birth of triplets in October 2007 was a blessing – and a challenge.

    After Angela gave birth to sons Gabriel, Kagan and Devin, she intended to return to work as soon as possible. Day care, however, proved to be an insurmountable challenge.

    “If I’d gone back to work,” Angela said, “all I’d have been working for was day care and gas. It would be like paying to be gone. I’d rather be with them.”

  • The resurrection account of Jesus contains two words that make all the difference in Simon Peter’s life. The women had come to anoint the body of Jesus. They were amazed to find the tomb empty as an angelic being announced Jesus’ resurrection. The two words that make all the difference is “and Peter.”

    “Go tell the disciples ... and Peter” (Mark 16:7).

    Why are these words there? Peter had denied Jesus in the hour of testing and needed to be encouraged. He needed a new beginning and a second chance.
