If I asked, “Who wants to grow deeper in Christ?” My guess is I would get a rousing shout of agreement. But we often don’t do things that would bring that to pass. Sara Haggerty in her book, Unseen, said, ” Most of the time, we don’t reach for God until we have to. Our […]
How to Carry the Resurrection of Christ With Us.
Darkness. Waiting. Feelings of doubt and despair but also the mere bubbling up of a hope not yet dead… The earth trembles, the tomb shakes, and no amount of darkness can hold back the light … the life of CHRIST! It can’t stop there beloved! As this weekend started drawing to a close, my […]
Walking Into the New Year Waving A White Flag.
The rain is pouring down on the metal roof of my sunroom right above my head. The staccato rhythm of the rain is beating in my chest and it feels like the new year has swept in with gail force winds. I feel the tension in my body and I’m tired. I’m so tired of […]
Autumn Beauty and Taking Up Our Cross.
Fall is sweeping in and I just love it. I know some of you are mourning the end of summer but when the leaves dress in their finest, splendor and the air looses its heaviness, I feel my heart begin to skip. The afternoon light carries a depth of gold that’s fleeting, And, I wonder […]
Courage is Yours For The Taking.
I’ve felt it deep in my soul. Like the steady beating of a heart. Courage. Courage. Courage. The lack of it. The great need of it. The way it has the power to change things when a frail human lays hold of it and steps up to the plate we call life. I don’t know […]
The Power to Live A More Than “Normal” Life This Year.
Well, we’re officially into the new year and I think we can all see there was no magic reset button to bring all things back to normal. But here’s what I’ve learned in the last six years beloved. NORMAL is overrated. Six years ago today, we stumbled out onto Michigan Avenue after doctors told us […]
Knowing my God > Knowing Myself.
In a world that is all about knowing “who we are” and finding our identity, I realized something today. It doesn’t matter if I know who I am if I don’t know who my God is. Knowing who my God is changes everything. It will change how I interact with Him. It will change my […]
What is Holding You Back?
I took a month off podcasting to step back and breathe. As you can see from the date of the last blog post that’s where I’m spending most of my time. You can find similar content to my blogs over at “Seek and Savor, ” on iTunes and other places you tune into your favorite […]
Love for the Fatherless Ones.
Father’s Day. It should be such an easy holiday, right? A barbecue, a tie, a homemade card. It wasn’t for me and isn’t for so many and yet now, more than ever, I see the need to celebrate Fatherhood. The work these men are called to is holy. It’s one only they can do. As […]
The State Of Our Hearts.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, I want to be so intentional. In our family this day has always been so simple. Some chocolates for our children, some flowers for me from my husband and a special home cooked meal. Since I was raised by a single mama, the kids and I would often take flowers to […]
