Purpose

Four years ago… I clicked “post” with trembling fingers and launched a vulnerable piece of my heart into the world: the Give Me Jesus Journal. This journal had been the culmination of years of striving in my walk with the Lord. I’d longed to know Him more deeply through the Word, but I just couldn’t […]

This series was written by Kara Holmes. A professional counselor turned stay-at-home mom, Kara is wife to Trey and mom to Kate, Justin, and Alisa.

ASCENDING CALVARY Last fall we introduced a new study entitled He Is: Experiencing the Power of Jesus’ Name. This beautiful fictional narrative was written by Kara Holmes, Gretchen’s sister. It combined elements of a fictional story with truth from Scripture, and we spent the time leading up to Christmas digging into the names of God. […]

Last year I had the worst habit of waking up and scrolling on my phone first thing. I knew it wasn’t good for my soul, but I did in anyway. The warmth of my covers somehow lured me into staying “just a few minutes longer,” and my time with Jesus started to suffer. To be […]

Do you ever notice your heart can have a tendency to put good before God?  Often I assume that something good is definitely what I am supposed to do, because it is good, after all! Then I jump in headfirst without even consulting God or prayerfully asking Him if this is His will for my life.  […]

The ultimate resolution in the life of the believer is simply stated in these two commands. Love God, and love others. Our New Years Resolutions may change from year to year, but if you are a believer in Christ and are being transformed in His image, then hopefully the heart of your goals each year […]
