• Quote of the Day

    "Love the sinner, hate the sin? How about: Love the sinner, hate your own sin! I don't have time to hate your sin. There are too many of you! Hating my sin is a full-time job. How about you hate your sin, I'll hate my sin and let's just love each other!"
    - Mark Lowry

  • Taking Time to Read with your Kids

    Karen with James from KFLR Family LIfe Radio at the reading event today!

    This morning Karen Powell and I had the opportunity to read books to two classes at West Valley Christian School.  We had a blast going into the classroom and getting to read to kids on their second day of school.  They are like sponges, and loved to hear the stories!  Reading to kids is so important and we have always read to our kids at home.  I have to let you in on a story that I just learned from my two oldest about some of the times I would read to them.    


    We are a homeschooling family and our tradition has been for me to read to them while they make lunch for us all.    My two oldest kids, Justin and Lauren, are now grown and married, and recently they  confessed  that when they were making the lunches, they would intentionally take longer so I would read longer.   I was totally unaware. . .  gotta love it! 


    So, read to your kiddos today and enjoy the time you have with them.  It opens a whole new world for them, and can be a great opportunity for the Lord to speak to their hearts about who He is and what He wants them to become.   


    Enjoy the journey!!

  • A Sad Farewell to Next Coffee

    The End of a Season

    This week one of the Valleys wonderful independent businesses, Next Coffee Co. regretfully closed its doors after 4 years of serving the valley with local, fresh, and quality products. Over the last few years we have seen many independent businesses say farewell to this city and it is always sad to see them go. All of us here at Crossroads Books and Coffee would like to say thank you to Next Coffee for the time that they dedicated to pursuing quality and wonderful service to the Phoenix area. To the staff and owners, we will miss you and hope that you will be blessed in whatever the Lord has for you in the future.

    It is our hope that we will be able to follow in their footsteps in serving the West Valley with quality local products in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere.

    With thankfulness for the past and hope for the future.
