  • The Internet of things

    The Internet of Things, or IoT, is hot new technology. IoT is about connectivity between smart-devices via the Internet.

  • Does technology control our lives?

    I recently received a reality check of how long it had been since I graduated high school and how I am considered old when it comes to technology.

    My reality check occurred after I read an article about what a typical day was like for a high school student in 2005.

  • Every Christian’s Desire

    God’s will for every Christian is that we grow spiritually.  The writer of Hebrews challenges us, “... let us ... go on to maturity” (6:1).  God wants us to be like His Son. As Christians our standard for measuring our growth is not another Christian, but the Word of God.
