Quiet-Time

The Everyday Decisions When my husband and I were in our early twenties, we decided to run a half marathon. It seemed reasonable to us that two couch potatoes could become runners during the twelve weeks of training, but that was an assumption built on the idea that we would actually complete all of the […]

The Need for Truth I began my senior year of college with life turning out exactly as I had always imagined: graduating, then marrying the man of my dreams. Halfway through that year, though, my world was turned upside down with my mom’s diagnosis of brain cancer. Suddenly, my perfect world wasn’t so perfect, and […]

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 […]

A Change of Heart I discovered the intriguing world of inductive Bible study about six years ago. Following the technique I learned from my pastor, I began soaking up the word of God like a sponge. Excitement sparked like lightning inside my brain as I began connecting dots across Scripture. I started to really know […]

Time in the Word I remember when our boys were young and one of them was a horrible sleeper for a season, meaning we were up with him several times a night. One morning, flustered and angry over the exhaustion I felt, and excusing myself from any form of discipline or accountability, I looked over […]

Prepare Your Heart Friends, as we get ready to begin a bible study on prayer, we wanted to use today to check our hearts. Let’s take a minute to ask God to really search us and know us – and to show us what keeps us from a prayer-saturated life. Grab your Bible and journal […]

Join us for Lent in the Psalms As Lent begins next Wednesday, we will begin digging into the Psalms and praying through the Scriptures following our Breathe Study. The study focuses on 40 different Psalms. We also begin with some introduction and guidance on how to pray using Scripture. The number 40 is symbolic all throughout […]

The Book Above Every Other Book Nearly 130 million books exist so far in this world1, but only one Book has living qualities. Only one has been breathed out by the God of the universe. This book is the Bible. The Bible is the ageless, unchanging, life-altering Word of God. It is written by human […]

Truth and Reality One of my goals this year is to read every Pulitzer Prize fiction award winner of the last decade. A great story has become a reprieve from my normal nonfiction reading. It allows me to get lost in a world that is not my own. Often, I find the characters compellingly familiar […]
