The “Kwathu Change Jar Challenge.”

Have you ever wondered just how much change is lying around your house? I know I have! Sometimes I’ll find it between the couch cushions, lying on the table with my keys, or in the dryer after I accidentally leave it in my pocket when I wash my clothes. Sometimes I even find a few pennies, dimes, and quarters on the floor of my car, or just lying on the…Keep Reading

Hosanna is Home!

“GKC Family, we are back from our month in India and we brought precious little Hosanna home with us!

At one point, they were telling us we would have to wait…Keep Reading

Our Brother From Another Mother

“A few months ago in October 2017 I received the strange news that a young man named Marcello from Brazil would be a new housemate of mine in the Community House for a few months. I really didn’t know what to expect from this news especially when I found out that part of his motivation for coming to America was to improve his English. If you’re not already aware, I…Keep Reading

Our Flower Child

We love hippies, young “up and coming” hippies and old soul hippies. What is a hippie: “a person, especially of the late 1960s, who rejected established institutions and values and sought spontaneity, direct personal relations expressing love, and expanded consciousness, often expressed externally in the wearing of casual, folksy clothing and of beads, headbands, used garments, etc.” Our better together, Holly Hurt is NOT from the late 1960’s, but she…Keep Reading

“One More Time”

When I think of “people of Grace Klein,” I will always think of Beulah Brown and thank God that the Womacks invited us along to meet her. Jesus gave them a friendship with Beulah that they quickly shared with all of us. Many people have taught me about community in this almost 10 year journey serving with Grace Klein Community and the saying really is true “we are better together.”…Keep Reading

January 2018 Update on the “Moon.”

The year 2016 was the year of Evan’s brain cancer diagnosis and surgery. The year 2017 was the year of Evan’s dad being diagnosed and treated for thyroid cancer. We are declaring 2018 as the year of continued healing and recovery. Evan’s December MRI showed “no change” from the October MRI which is wonderful news because the October report was “stable and decreased”. The cancer area is visible as just…Keep Reading

Embrace Grace

“Everyone has one of those moments. A moment that defines your life: “Before Mom died…”; “After I found out I had cancer…”; Before the house fire…”. It is a moment that splits your life in two. Before…and after. My moment…I was 22 years old, single, almost finished with college, and 5 ½ months pregnant. My on-again, off-again boyfriend had just left for what I knew would be the last time….Keep Reading

When God says “Go” What Do We Do?

When your friends who live an ocean apart could do with a little more encouragement, what would you do? Get the cheapest flight possible and jump on it even if it will take you 72+ hours to get there. My wife and I get quite amped with seemingly random and spontaneous God assignments. We prayed and received peace that I should come and spend time with our friends this side…Keep Reading
