Gospel in the Mundane

I knew I had to drink more water. My skin was dry, my stomach was queasy, and I had more headaches than usual. I bought a planner with a monthly habit tracker and set a goal of drinking two bottles of water each day. But the boxes on my habit tracker didn’t get checked as […]

Savoring the Moment Have you ever longed to sit and savor a moment? Maybe it was the first time your baby was placed on your chest. Or the feeling of a spring breeze carrying the scent of honeysuckle to your nose. That moment when your boyfriend went down on one knee. Or when you gazed […]

Delivering Flowers Growing up around my family’s flower shop has taught me some important life lessons. Practically speaking, I can tell you the off-season price of a peony or how to best hydrate hydrangeas. My parents and grandparents modeled customer service through servant leadership, seeking to celebrate customers’ greatest joys and deepest sorrows. Even spiritually […]

Before the Day The hardest part is putting your feet on the floor, Katie. Just put your feet on the floor. This is the mantra I repeat to myself almost every morning when my alarm clock goes off. My strongest temptation—and let’s be honest, my strongest desire—is to hit the snooze button two or three […]

The Paradox of Prayer Growing up in the church, one sentiment I heard a thousand times was “I’ll be praying for you.” Along with reading the Bible, praying seemed to be the Sunday School answer to what a Christian person should do. So, when I was a little girl, I made a list of all […]

“Count it all joy…”  These introductory words from the New Testament letter of James have been tumbling around in my mind. They’re giving me gut punches when I want to complain, and comforting my heart when discouragement threatens my peace. The question strikes my heart: is it really possible to “count it all joy” in […]

The Church is the People The Church is facing an interesting and challenging circumstance today. How do we practice ministry without the gift of presence? My pastor keeps reminding us that the Church is the people—not the building! But, doing ministry without the building is proving to be a challenge. I keep coming back to […]

Choosing Intentionality Don’t waste your quarantine. Yes, I know it’s inconvenient and very unsettling. I know plans are drastically changed and a new normal hasn’t been set in place. But even still, don’t waste these days. Some day this quarantine will end. Some day things will be back to the norm. But will we look […]

Back to Jesus It was an all-out fight to focus during my quiet time. Thoughts flooded my mind—worries, fears, questions, unresolved ideas, pressing tasks. I couldn’t read the words before me in my Bible. Time flew by like a rocket. I spent the time trying to wrangle my attention while counting down the minutes to […]

Now and Then One of my mother-in-law’s best qualities is her ability to save money. One of the many ways we have all benefited from this is her knack for keeping things we’ll need later. When we had our first child (her first grandchild) you would not believe the amount of baby gear she had […]
