  • The Power of a Penny

    By: Erica Grogg, House Manager A few weeks ago, I was at the Missouri Christian Convention telling people about Sparrow. At one point while I was at our booth, a precious little red head boy came up to me and was so excited when I gave him a piece of candy (with his mother’s permission, […]

AWE-THIN-ticity. This word seems to have been the theme of Sparrow this past week, but before continuing […]

At times it is an issue of pride; I simply don’t want to let anyone know about my perceived areas of failure. Often, though, it is my assumption that everyone else is strong, handles stressful situations well, and wouldn’t […]

  • Top 3 Ways to Write This Article: I Chose “Prayer”

    By: Heather Hussey Life is messy, right? And for everyone. Everyone has something — some type of mountain they are trying to conquer. A death they are trying to grieve.

  • The Sparrow’s Nest and Giraffes By: Erica Grogg-House Aide

    Through a strange series of events, I now find myself writing about a connection between giraffes and The Sparrow’s Nest. At first thought, how could these two things possibly be related?

  • Guest Blog: Generosity and Children

    When I was pregnant with my little girl I had no idea what generosity meant. I thought being generous was giving money to the homeless or donating your old clothes to Goodwill.
