Christmas Morning I woke up as a young girl on Christmas morning, eyes sparkling with magic and chest bursting with anticipation. This was the day we had been counting down to all month.

Giving Thanks from Psalm 136

Worship

Why did God create us with emotions?  Have you ever thought about that? He could have easily made us without them, but in His sovereignty, He chose to let this be one of the ways that we image Him, understand Him, and glorify Him. Do emotions function like a thermometer or a thermostat in your […]

Why Do We Feel the Way We Do?

Feelings

As 2019 comes to a close, I’ve been on the hunt for the “perfect planner” to use in 2020. Over the past few years, I’ve tried out several planners in an attempt to find one that would help my overwhelming life feel more manageable, organizing my days with ease. The other day I stumbled upon […]
