Denial’s worked pretty well for me so far. But as I type with trembling fingers, reality is seeping in. Just after Christmas, my family is moving. To Seattle. I know. From sunshine to rain. But then, change is as inevitable as the lights that twinkle along Chandler Boulevard during the holidays each year. And so, I have to embrace one more in a long lifetime of transitions.
I have a Bible verse propped up on my desk as a great reminder throughout the day. It reads, “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for Me?” (Jeremiah 32:27). Of course the answer to that is a resounding NO! I would like to share a few encouraging stories that illustrate how nothing is impossible for God.
HERE: ‘The Nutcracker’ in Ahwatukee this weekend
When you live in this country you know that the three major sports are football, basketball and baseball. And while track and field is considered a minor sport in the U.S., I would argue that having a good foundation in track and field can truly help any athlete in his or her chosen athletic discipline.
In an effort to raise funds for the Philippines, the Desert Vista National Honor Society (NHS) will be hosting a movie night next week for the entire Ahwatukee community.
Q: I am having an increasing number of emails that are sent from Gmail, not being received and not in their spam folder. If I send it from my Cox address, they receive it. This is very frustrating. Any ideas? — Eileen
A true story made headlines Nov. 4. A trove of approximately 1,500 works of art confiscated by the Nazis in World War II were seized in a Munich apartment. The value was estimated to be $1.3 billion by artists such as Picasso, Matisse and Chagall. The news goes on to say that determining the rightful owners of the works decades after they were either sold under duress or seized could take years.

Is it me or does it seem this time of year things seem less stressful, more fun, and energizing?

“The Nutcracker” ballet” in Ahwatukee Foothills has been refreshed and reworked for its 14th year but the new changes have only added to the magic, according to Dance Studio 111 owner Kimberly Lewis.
Thanksgiving. A holiday started long ago that currently finds its way into homes of pumpkin scents, laced around glazed turkeys, cranberry sauce, and good-ole mashed potatoes. Yet the Thanksgiving holiday is not just seen as a time to celebrate that we all love to eat, and the food coma we eventually fall into afterwards, but a day to stop and think about what we are truly thankful for.

Have you ever walked through a season in your life you thought might break you? I’m not talking about the everyday stuff. We’re each going to wrestle with our share of broken air conditioners in July, cranky bosses, and family feuds. I’m talking about soul crushing, heart wrenching times when getting through the days takes a herculean effort. When you can’t lift yourself out of the pit despite all of your coping resources – faith, friends, family, chocolate ice cream. And wine, in the name of truth telling.
What do you think? Can porn be addictive? More mental health professionals are telling us “yes it can,” and further, it can be as addictive as hard-core drugs and it’s known to change the health of the brain.
Sony’s new SmartWatch 2 doesn’t get as much attention — and doesn’t do as much — as Samsung’s Galaxy Gear computerized wristwatch. But for the things it does, Sony’s version performs better.
Forty is a significant number in the Bible, and there are many instances of something happening for 40 days or 40 years. To name a few things that lasted for 40 days — during the time of Noah, it rained for 40 days and nights (Genesis 7:12); Moses met with God on the mountain for 40 days twice, first to obtain instructions for building the tabernacle and then to receive the 10 commandments (Exodus 24:18 and 34:28); the spies explored the land of Canaan for 40 days (Numbers 13:25); Goliath taunted the Israelites for 40 days until David put an end to him (1 Samuel 17:16); one meal gave Elijah enough strength to sustain him for 40 days (1 Kings 19:8); the city of Nineveh was given 40 days to repent (Jonah 3:4); Jesus fasted and was tempted by the devil for 40 days (Luke 4:2); after Jesus’ resurrection, He appeared on earth for a period of 40 days before ascending into heaven (Acts 1:3).
(Editor’s note: This is the first in a two-part guest commentary. See the conclusion in the Nov. 22 AFN, where one porn user shares his journey and mental health experts struggle over what to call this problem).
With the holidays right around the corner, My Wine Cellar and Bistro will be hosting its third annual Wine Festival for the Ahwatukee community. The goal: to have the perfect bottle of vino for Thanksgiving dinner.
Four years ago, I entered into a whole new chapter of my life through my role at Mountain View Lutheran Church. Since then, I’ve reflected many times on my experiences – both the good and the “what was I thinking” moments. Admittedly, I came into my role with a bit of arrogance. You know – the “I don’t have much experience, but I’ve read a few books about it” type of raw talent that doesn’t fool many for long. Little did I know that a humbling four years was knocking on the door.
Nearly any time of day, if you’re driving around Ahwatukee, you’ll easily come across at least a handful of people on the roads running — this is one reason why I love living in this community.

And, what about our invisible human energy, love and hate, which packs a punch; creates and changes civilization?
