Her book, Chickening IN: From Fear to Courageous Faith, 8 Pillars of Transformation, is a practical guide to defeating fear and doubt. I spoke with JJ in February, but we especially need her message...

What happens when you play catch every day for a year?

Ethan Bryan played catch on New Year's Day with his daughters. Then they had an idea. "Dad, what if you played catch every day for an entire year?"

That's 365 days of catch! It's 500 catch partners, 10 states, and 12,000 miles, rain, wind, and snow. It's about play, letting our guard down, and connecting with each other.

Do you have a story about how play ...

    Doubt can be a gift, because it alerts us when something's amiss. Here's a way to engage doubt without getting burned.

    Doubt can be hard to define but it plays out in indecision, hesitation, busywork, loss of enthusiasm, e...

Purportedly, it was a place that parents could send their troubled kids for help. But in reality, it was a breeding ground for abuse. This is the story of Anneewakee, as never told before.
