Rest

My children squealed in delight on our family’s first afternoon in our upgraded, fenced-in backyard. My husband spent weeks sweating in the overgrown landscape. He dug up rocky soil, carried pallets of sod, and repaired broken fence boards to create a fun, safe play area. Previously, anytime my young children wanted to play outside, I […]

Summer is special—long, sunny days, beach trips, trees dressed in green, hikes as the sun scorches our skin, and joyful gatherings with friends under starry skies. The Lord designed each season with unique opportunities to know him better. Summer is a chance to experience joy, refreshment, and his glory in the beauty of creation. Don’t […]

My Sunday mornings rarely look like breakfast in bed and peaceful drives to church. More often than I’d like to admit, I stumble into church ten minutes late, flustered from trying to find that one missing shoe and hurrying everyone out the door. During the worship service, a flood of distractions fight for my attention—the […]

 I sighed as I grabbed another chair and added it to the stack, glancing as I did so at the group of teens my age that sat laughing together at the other end of the room. They had taken off their shoes and were lounging on the floor while I bagged trash, folded tables, and […]

A Change of Plans 2020 has not been what anyone expected. When I wrote down my dreams for this year on January 1st, it did not involve a global pandemic or worldwide unrest. We are over halfway through the year. But chances are, you’re feeling tired, soul-weary, and a little offbeat. As I’ve dug deep […]

Cocooning At Home It was a trying time—an isolating season. But as advised, we pulled away from all of our normal social activities and gatherings. We stayed at home day after day, avoiding big groups of people and only going out when necessary. We spent about eight weeks in this unique season called “cocooning.” You […]

Staying Connected in Social Distancing During this time of “social distancing,” God has provided incredible opportunities to stay connected to the body of Christ through the internet. Though the online world can be a dark place, God, in His infinite wisdom and power, can pierce the darkness with the truth and the light of Christ! […]

Full-Blown Panic A few years ago I had my first full-blown panic attack. To say it caught me off-guard and knocked me off my feet would be an understatement. Until that point, I had lived life going 100 mph at all times, like a speeding train with no brakes. I learned the hard way in […]

Now and Then One of my mother-in-law’s best qualities is her ability to save money. One of the many ways we have all benefited from this is her knack for keeping things we’ll need later. When we had our first child (her first grandchild) you would not believe the amount of baby gear she had […]

A New Mindset “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”  (Isaiah 55:8–9) Wait, child. The phrase spoken into my situation after I talked […]
