Seasons that Endure We’ve all been there … those times when the season we are in doesn’t seem to be changing. Those times when we question how long we can operate in “survival mode.” Times that bring the challenge: “If this doesn’t change, am I okay with that?”  I am privileged to work as a […]

Unchanging Seasons

“Out of the deepest waters and the hottest fires have come the deepest things that I know about God.”  –Elisabeth Elliot When Trials Come As believers, we can expect trials to come our way. I love the way the apostle Peter states it so honestly in 1 Peter 4:12–13: “Beloved, do not be surprised at […]

Contributing Writers

Why You Should Journal Your Prayers

Prayer

A Time to Remember Several years ago, I found myself spending an afternoon in a very different way than I had planned. I’d come to my desk trying to find something I just couldn’t seem to track down. In the midst of searching every nook and cranny of the desk, I opened one little door […]

Journaling: An Eternal Tool for God’s Glory

Journaling

Perfectionism Paralysis Maybe it’s a personality thing, but I find perfectionism creeping into every area of my life—including my relationship with God.

5 Signs You’re a Journaling Perfectionist

Journaling

Journaling to Remember We humans are a forgetful people.
