lifeband

I had hoped to have this post up earlier, but we are still trying to recover and catch up with life after being on a road trip for over 2 weeks with our three young kiddos, so things are taking a little longer to get done. I’ve talked about my friend Amanda at ohamanda.com several times before, as she is the writer of the fantastic eBook “Truth in the Tinsel“. Recently, she has also started a series on her blog {Read More}

Weep Between the Porch and the Altar – Part 3

Welcome to the third and final part of this series! I would encourage you to read Part 1 and Part 2 to get the background and setup for this concluding piece. However, to briefly recap… In Parts 1 & 2, we are introduced to the verse in Matthew 23 where Jesus says to the Pharisees, “upon you will come all the righteous blood that has been shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah {Read More}

Horton Hears A Who

As you may know, the Dr. Seuss book “Horton Hears A Who” has been adapted into a computer-animated movie coming to theatres this March.

They forgot the God who saved them…”  This hit me personally and I felt the conviction of the Holy Spirit, for how many times {Read More}

The Hannah Season

So, in my last post, I talked about the Esther Season – the time in my life where God was preparing me for my future husband. Now, I am beginning a new journey into what I’ve decided to call the Hannah Season. As I’m sure most of you know, Hannah was the mother to the well-known prophet of the Bible, Samuel. Her story can be found in the first 3 chapters of the book of 1 Samuel and she is {Read More}

Outstanding Among Ten Thousand

For a rather vulnerable glimpse into my life, lately I have been thinking a lot about being pregnant and wishing I had a life in the process of creation within me. This is in part due to the dozens of pregnant women and new mothers around me. I also think it is because Joe & I have been married now for a year and I am actually in a position where having a baby is not completely out of the {Read More}
