Gospel in the Mundane

Making room for others is rarely easy. If truth be told, our lives are complicated, overscheduled, and just plain busy. Invitational living often feels like a burdensome extra. But our homes hold a valuable secret the world longs to know: God is good and loving and true. Every time we open our doors in hospitality […]

With signs of summer all around, another shift in seasons is before us. And whether we are finishing a semester of school, helping our family transition to summer schedules, or simply readying our closets with flip-flops and swimsuits, change is upon us. While summer typically brings a rush of graduation parties, weddings, and showers—celebrations meant […]

I settle into the couch, letting my slippers fall quietly to the floor. My Bible sits next to me, a new journal in my lap. Slowly I begin to move the pen, thoughts filling the page in the early morning hours. I shut my journal and open the Bible study book I recently began. Today […]

Spiritual Disciplines in a Busy Day In the precious early hours before my kiddos wake up with requests for books and pleas for Frosted Mini-Wheats, I’m hunched over my phone scrolling the morning feed while my Bible lies in my lap unopened. When I finally get to reading and praying, I have only a few […]

Does this really matter?  The question crosses my mind as I scrub leftover casserole off dirty dishes, sit in the winding carpool line, pay bills, and switch the laundry over…yet again.

“So, When Are You Going to Have Kids?” Someone asked me about kids at my wedding reception. Let that sink in. I’ve been asked a variation of this question at least once a month for the past eight years. I wish I was exaggerating, but if you’ve been married any length of time and find […]

In the first few years I played softball, I’d often drop a pop-fly or miss a simple grounder. Although I made countless mistakes, they didn’t change my identity. I was a softball player. I wore the uniform, I trained, I played, and I improved. Over time, my muscles strengthened in technique and my mind strategized […]

Overwhelmed With Debt It started out slow. A shopping day here, a weekend trip there, and then it got out of hand. No matter what I did or how much money I threw at them, the numbers only got bigger. And scarier. About six months ago, I confessed to my community group that I was […]

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 […]
