Free Chapter Download and Video: Different

God is different. I know, I know—where do I come up with this stuff? Well, this is the kind of brilliance you can expect from Crave Something More. Wait, what do you mean this isn’t all that profound? What do you mean of course He is different?

See a Need, Meet a Need?

Jon Acuff wrote a pretty interesting article at Stuff Christians Like talking about an issue we all face: How do we decide who merits, if that’s even a useful word in this situation, our charity. One of the things Jon has done is to build a community at SCL, and the discussion on this post is all over the map. Some feel we should always give freely; others feel our giving should be qualified.

Free Chapter Download and Video: Pager

“I have so much pain that I’m just holding on to. I try to get away but everywhere I go my problems always catch up. I’m so lost in this world. Why can’t someone save me?” These thoughts came from the little pink journal of a young teenage girl sitting next to me on a plane. How did I know what she had written? That’s a great question, and there’s really no way to spin it, so I’ll just tell you that I was peeking.

Go Tell Him I Love Him

“Go tell him I love him.” That’s what I think God said to me in my car yesterday afternoon. I was on the way home from some filming, and the city was blanketed with the first snow of the year, which is just about the best thing ever for a guy who has lived in LA for the last 9 years. I normally would throw on the radio to pass the time, but on this afternoon, I drove in silence, marveling at the wonder of snow, and creation, and God.

Tiger…And The Prowling Lion

Why pile on Tiger? I’d say commentary doesn’t have to pile on; commentary can be cruel, or it can be full of grace. But people are going to be caught up in the current events surrounding the world’s most famous golfer, so there’s an opportunity to for each of us to engage others, and our own hearts, as we consider how we are reacting to this news.

Free Chapter Download and Video: Silence

This week’s free chapter download is titled Silence, and it’s a chapter I need to read again myself. When I lived the story in this chapter, it was a season of discovery—of trying to find a place to be silent before God so that I can hear His voice. My goal was to improve my conversation with Him…

Tomorrow’s Phantom

I have always taken comfort in the future. What I mean is that I’ve always been preparing for something, and that made me feel secure because I knew where I was going, which in turn gave me a sense of control, which in turn made me feel comfortable. For example, when I was at the Air Force Academy, I knew I was going into the Air Force. And when I was in the Air…

Dear Kayli Anneke

Dear Kayli Anneke: Since the internet will last forever, I feel comfortable putting this letter online, knowing you will read it someday. Perhaps someday very soon, since you’ll be growing up in Cambridge, England, and everyone knows kids from Cambridge typically write their first thesis by age six. I’ve never had a niece or nephew before, so I’m new to being an uncle. Thank you for the honor you’ve given to me just by breathing. Your Aunt Anna and I love you already, and we haven’t even met you. But we’re coming to see you…
