A Confusing Valentine’s Day Our first married Valentine’s was a bust. Let me rephrase that. Our first married Valentine’s didn’t go as I expected. And in turn, I found myself disappointed and let down in a pretty significant way. When I look back on that day eight years ago, I smile at how much could […]

Checking Boxes and Quiet Times They handed me a spiral-bound notebook and a Bible reading plan and told me to read my Bible for 30 minutes every day. Each day’s reading included two questions to answer. So, like a good little rule-follower, I did what they said. From seventh grade through my senior year of […]

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 […]

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. The Advent calendar had been opened, cookies baked, The Santa Clause watched. There had been game days, shopping trips, and gift wrapping […]

First Steps of Friendship On the first day of kindergarten, I decided I was going to befriend a girl in my class.

There are also ungodly ways to participate or abstain. Strong opinions abound, and we pray you will search Scripture and be led by the Holy Spirit in forming […]

Check Your Story (at the door) I love telling stories. Stories connect us to a time and place, a memory, to one another. But lately, I find myself telling stories that aren’t mine to tell. I have played it off as a form of caring and sharing with those I love, but at the core, […]

“Out of the deepest waters and the hottest fires have come the deepest things that I know about God.”  –Elisabeth Elliot When Trials Come As believers, we can expect trials to come our way. I love the way the apostle Peter states it so honestly in 1 Peter 4:12–13: “Beloved, do not be surprised at […]

“Each time you fall He will pick you up again. And He knows perfectly well that your own efforts are never going to bring you anywhere near perfection.” –C.S. Lewis Crying Over Spilled Pasta It was toward the end of a long day, one of those days in which everything seems to go wrong, and […]
