what I keep before me

Last week was a zinger . . . had to say goodbye to our dog of 15 years, had to replace the hot water heater, received word back regarding the boys’ British passports and for no apparent reason, we were required to resubmit our paperwork, and on it went, ending with a puking 5 year old. By Friday night, I was just totally worn out. FRIED. Not to mention that...

rethinking leadership

To say that this last year has been one that has been filled with growth would be an understatement. I’ve felt like 2014 has been a year of rework as every part of me has been stretched and pushed to grow. It hasn’t been easy or lovely, but it’s been good. Last year at this time, we didn’t know what we were doing or where we were headed in...

How fast did November fly by? I feel like I can’t keep up with how quickly life is passing . . . it’s truly feeling like we’re living in a whirlwind right now.

We have a God-given instinct to protect our children and to...

ordering our steps

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life – and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even...

our sense of wonder

May we never lose our wonder . . . wide eyed and mystified may we be just like a child staring at the beauty of our King . . . fill us with wonder. You are beautiful in all Your ways! I’ve had this song on repeat for three days now as I’ve just been dwelling in Him, in His beauty, and in His goodness. And as I’ve soaked in Him, I’ve let go of...

walking

2 Corinthians 5:7 NKJV For we walk by faith, not by sight. How true is this scripture? Yet as simple as it is, how hard does it seem to live by? I’ve been thinking on faith, belief, and taking God at His Word as I attempt to apply it to everything we have going on right now. I truly think the key to it is learning that we really can’t walk by sight as we...
