Advent

Merry Christmas—the day of rejoicing is here!  Hallelujah, Christ has come; Christ died and rose; Christ is coming again!  Jesus’ birth was just the beginning of Christ’s work as the Lamb of God. In the Jewish sacrificial system, every single lamb ever slain on the altar of sacrifice remained dead. No lamb returned to life. […]

End of Year Traditions These final weeks of the year, many people pack suitcases or put clean sheets on the guest bed to prepare to spend the holidays with family. Sometimes I am one of those people. I have crammed onto overbooked flights with my husband and kids to spend Christmas with dear ones across […]

When Transition Threatens Your Peace Recently, my husband and I bought our first home together. After renting for 7.5 years, we found the perfect home and made an offer. While this has been a thrilling time, the transition has stolen all of my norms and routines. I can’t find anything, there are boxes everywhere, and […]

Even Busier Seasons Regardless of how well we guard our time and schedules, many of us still find ourselves in busy seasons. In my current season of life, my husband and I have recently relocated to a new city and joined a new church where my husband is the student pastor. Since we’ve been here, […]

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.

Merry Christmas Today, as you gather around a twinkling Christmas tree, cozy up by a glowing fire, and light a warmly scented candle, praise God for visible reminders of the Light of the World—Jesus. The sun rose this morning just like it did the day Jesus was born, and the sun will set in the […]

What happens when you walk into a pitch-dark room and flip the switch on the wall? Light instantly floods the space. Your eyes reflexively squint and shift away from the painful brightness. All of the room’s dusty, dirty little secrets are exposed as the hood of darkness is thrown back. Sometimes you even hear the […]

Every year I find myself glued to the TV screen watching a cheesy Hallmark Christmas movie. Within the first five minutes I can usually gauge what the characters will be like, who will end up falling in love with whom, and how the ending will turn out—which we all know is “happily ever after.” Even […]
