Keep The Doors Open

    Most people have heard the phrase, “We don’t live in a barn” growing up. As a little girl, I will admit I left the door open as I would rush into the house for a quick drink, allowing the cool air to send a chill through the home. We are told to keep our […]

Eat The Word

    My children can always get me laughing. They have this secret talent which I’m sure will never be a claim to fame. They can sing all of the commercial jingles for all of the restaurant establishments that appear on television. From Subway’s, “Five Dollar Foot Long Jingle,” to Chili’s “Baby Back Ribs Jingle,” they […]

Drowning in Clutter

    For exactly the last three months, I have lived a life with very little clutter. Three months ago, my family and I headed to the airport and we began our voyage to Australia. Our items were in storage. We stayed in Sydney for two and a half months, living out of suitcases. We really […]

Running

    When I was younger, I always was amazed at the story of Jonah. I imagined this man attempting to run away, and yet “the LORD hurled a great wind” and next thing you know he was swallowed by “a great fish.” Who tries to run away from God? It seems crazy and yet I […]

The God Of

    One of the stories most taught to children that comes from the Bible is from chapter 6 of the Book of Daniel. We love to hear about how Daniel refused to give up praying to God, and was thrown into the den of a vicious lion, but was saved by God as a result […]

He Didn’t Leave

    I have two children and one thing they know is that they can count on me. Throughout the years, I have made it known to them that I’m here for them no matter what happens. The other day, my daughter needed help. She tried to do something on her own and things didn’t work […]

Laying It Before God

    Life can be overwhelming at times, especially when we try to carry everything on our own. The Lord tells us to come to Him for His yoke is light. The Bible says we aren’t to worry, because worry is not from God. Instead, we are to give it to God and trust Him.    […]

Inquiring of the Lord

    Every believer has their own relationship with God, a relationship which can be very different from another believer. Some people, like well-known Brother Lawrence, spend the day talking to God, even while washing the dishes. Then there are other believers who will admit that speaking with God, inquiring of His will for their lives, […]

Reclining with Christ

    I have told so many people that I have an inability to relax. I always try to keep myself busy, partly because I like to be productive, and partly because I really never learned how to relax. Even so, I see relaxation as a sleeping child or a cute, little puppy curled up in […]
