When You Reach A Crossroad

So, what happens when you reach a crossroad?  

Encouragement For You Today

 Photo Credit  via Compfight cc God is real. When He says, “Seek Me, and you’ll find Me,” He’s not just taking us on a game of cat and mouse. Rather, He’s inviting us into fellowship. He’s inviting us to sit, walk, talk, and move with Him. He’s inviting us into a greater understanding of His […]

Take One Step Forward. Cultivate Your Land.

Years ago I was intimidated by the idea of creating a beautiful space to call home. It was my desire, but I just didn’t know how. This was especially challenging as we went through difficult and financially trying times, including over 7 layoffs. Seriously?! Some people don’t experience that many layoffs in a lifetime, let […]

Hope Overflowing

Perhaps you’re facing a seemingly hopeless situation.

Without hope we lose sight of […]

Seeking Out The Lost

If we rush through the old, familiar stories, we miss the revelation of who He is. What happens when we sit before God’s living word with a desire to know Him? What happens […]

Beauty in the Quiet Life…

In this world of social media we’re told to put our life out there for all to feast on. Share every moment, every private detail, every picture of our children and all the ‘amazing’ things they do. Share the report cards, share the certificates, share, share, share… Years ago, I became convicted that I was […]

Let Not Your Heart Be Hardened

Winters are excruciatingly tough for me. Maybe it’s the lack of sun shining warmly on my face–the lack of Vitamin D, the darker, longer, colder nights. Maybe it’s the difficulties of holidays within step-families–everything’s split, holidays are more like holi-half-days. Or possibly it’s the cycle of end-of-year-traumatic-difficult-times we’ve endured year-after-year. Oddly enough, tough times tend to hit us at […]

Our Family In Crisis {World Help Friday}

Every second Friday of the month, World Help Bloggers unite in prayer regarding specific issues around the world. We lift our voices to God asking Him to lead our hearts, our words, our giving, and to simply help us be the hands and feet of Jesus on earth. I lead that prayer, and each time […]
