Shannon is a morning runner, an afternoon carpooler and all-day lover of Jesus. She is the voice of Jesus & My Orange Juice, a fresh-squeezed oasis for ordinary living.

God have mercy.   Having just arrived in Guam for mission work late last night, I had been unplugged from news for the last 24 hours. I awoke this morning (Guam time) to hear of the horrific bombings in and around the Boston Marathon a few… Read more

How to Care for Aging Parents: Practical Tips

It happens to all of us – if we’re lucky. When you were a newborn, your parents prayed for the chance to make it to old age. They spent the first several decades of their life caring for you.  Until the tables turned a few decades later. Now as they become aging parents, you are the one caring for them. And with that change can come significant challenges. For the last seven years, my wife has helped care for her… Read more

Off to Guam with Equip Leadership!

It’s time. It’s time? Did he just say it’s time? Sorry. Couldn’t resist a little Veggie Tales action this weekend as I return to Guam for an animated few weeks of equipping leaders for the work of Christ. For those of you who are geographically challenged — as I was — Guam is about equi-distant from Australia, the Philippines, and Japan. Sort of out in the middle of nowhere yet with access to anywhere in the South Pacific. Oh, and… Read more

See How to Teach Your Kids to Put Their Strengths to Work

I believe that God has created each of us to be better at some things than others. It’s a simple truth that, if embraced, changes how we teach our kids to put their strengths to work. Lately, I’ve taken to referring to it with our kids as discovering our superpowers. For one thing, we actually get intentional about discovering our own strengths so we can model the process for them. [ See my post 5 Resources to Now Discover Your… Read more

This simple post is not the length of what you usually find here at FaithWalkers.  I had another post planned for today, but instead, I’ll simply share my own earnest prayer that I jotted in my journal this morning. Not even sure why I’m sharing it, except that I feel urged to do so. Maybe it will be of help to someone. Maybe I’m the one who needs to share it. I’ve been reading through Exodus of late, paying particular attention to the… Read more
