Family On Mission

Family On Mission

If your ewe has rejected her lamb, don’t panic. There’s something you can try before resorting to bottle feeding. While you may need to express colostrum to get into the lamb quickly, with a little extra effort it’s possible to reunite mama and baby back together.

Homesteading to the Glory of God

We decided to homestead for many of the same reasons others do: A desire to be self-reliant, to give more time to spiritual pursuits, and to work with our kids on developing hands-on craft and life skills. A possible negative effect, however, to moving out to the country is isolating ourselves from the very world we believe as Christians we are called to reach. Therefore, a biblical view of homesteading must include an objective to bring glory to God [...]

A Look Back on 2018

This past year has been full of many new beginnings for all of us in the Kinnard family… We kicked off 2018 celebrating E.’s 10th birthday with a special father-son trip to St. Louis and Chicago as a way of launching E. into the world of double digits.  The special trip included going up into the St. Louis Arch, visiting the St. Louis Science Museum, riding the train to/from Chicago, eating Chicago pizza at Geno’s, and many other memorable activities.

Money, Possessions, and Eternity

I have read a lot of material on the subjects of Christian stewardship and general money management.  While most have been helpful, none of the resources I’ve looked at so far have satisfactorily provided as comprehensive a treatment (both theologically and practically) of this important topic as Randy Alcorn’s Money, Possessions, and Eternity. How a person views matters of ownership, wealth, giving, saving, investing, debt, and other related matters all comes down to how they view life. More specifically, it [...]

Nine Marks of a Healthy Church

As a pastor, I’ve talked with many Sunday visitors at our church who were looking for a new place to worship. The reasons for their searching range across the board.  They may have recently moved to town, or had a bad experience with their former church, or started feeling burdened to fill a pew after so many years of absence.  But in the limited 5 or 10 minutes I have to talk with them before or after a service, [...]

What’s Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms the Way You Get Things Done

If you’re looking for help with time management and productivity disciplines, I’d encourage you to look into Matt Perman’s “What’s Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms the Way You Get Things Done.”  While I have also benefited from some of the market’s best-sellers for this genre like David Allen’s “Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productive” and Stephen Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” Matt’s book offers a solid theological basis for why we should ultimately be [...]

We’re Debt Free!

One of the big motivating factors behind our family’s decision to move out to the country and adopt a simpler way of life was our conviction to get out of debt.  One of these days I’ll write a more in depth post on the foundational biblical principles that have influenced Amy’s and my approach to money and possessions since getting married.  For now, suffice it to say, we have been tirelessly working with “gazelle intensity,” as Dave Ramsey likes [...]
