Read A Mentor

In 1716, American revivalist preacher, theologian, and writer, Jonathan Edwards, penned a list of seventy “resolutions.” These resolutions, unlike most New Years Resolutions, were rooted deeply in a humble desire to obey God’s Word. Edwards began each of these resolutions with the simple word “resolved…” Resolve means to firmly set in one’s heart to do […]

I’ve heard it too many times to count. Statements such as: “I’m a failure at Bible study…” “I just don’t understand anything when I read my Bible…” “Bible study just isn’t for me…” “I never finish a Bible study. I get discouraged by the middle of it and just set it on my bedside table […]

In the Light This summer, I led a Bible study for the young singles in our church, and sexual discipleship was one of the topics in this series. It was also the week I had the most anxiety about teaching. In a conversation with a friend, I relayed my nerves about this particular week and […]

The Story That Speaks One of my most prized possessions is a tattered, torn, and very fragile book. Not only do the words tell a Story, but the tears, the blurred markings, the scribbled notes and the pieces of tape that hold pages together tell that this Story is real. The letters in this book […]

For years, I have read books my recent and older authors that have shaped my walk with Jesus. Having a mentor in my life has always been important in my spiritual growth, but there are several “mentors” that I have never met and will never meet. These people have mentored me through their writing and through their fervent love for Christ. Most people would define themselves as either an “avid reader” or “I never pick up a book non-existent reader.” I used to be the latter. But during college I began to pick up books out of my hunger to know God more and ever since then I haven’t been able to stop reading. When I don’t read books, the fire in my heart starts to fizzle. There is a great stir of the fire in our hearts when we read other’s passions, lessons, and wisdom!

The books I read in 2015 and the books I plan to read in 2016!

The moment your alarm went off this morning, you started thinking and making decisions. The first one would be to actually turn the alarm off, move from the cozy covers, and plant your feet on the floor to start your day. We are constantly thinking, making decisions, and meditating on something. The wheels in our minds are constantly turning, churning, mulling, dreaming, deciding, making conclusions, worrying, praising, and so on. My husband occasionally catches me off guard and asks me what I am thinking when he can tell I am distracted or am concentrating. Usually I sit for a second trying to decipher all the thoughts that were running through my head! Our minds are constantly busy directing our steps.
