Over the last five years I’ve purged a lot of material things from our home. Getting rid of these items took courage and decision making which are hard when losses pile up. If I cry in front of you about the way some of these losses impact my heart still, you...
Transition marked my life for the last seven years, and it sure stirred things up. Maybe you’re feeling some of that now. When one thing after another changes, or breaks, or fails in some way, it can be disorienting. Even disheartening. I wish transition...
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 “Please God, why? I need you to make this stop now!” Desperate prayers tumbled out in...
When we returned from “the ranch”, my world changed overnight. Again. It flipped upside down when we moved there in a whirlwind to stand in the front lines of foster care; it flipped another way when we came home feeling beat beyond belief. Fostering, giving, serving,...
I shared an image on Instagram which filled me with delight. At the same time it made me cry a little too. I felt uneasy about something. I couldn’t help but wonder what my photo story invoked in the hearts and minds of others. I thought of the mom or dad who is...
I’ve really wanted to throw in the towel the last couple of weeks. More than once. I’ve wanted to hang it up. Call it quits. Just stop trying to write and pursue all these things I know God put in me to do. Because, man, it got really tough. Spiritually,...
Ever find yourself struggling through life’s challenges? Maybe you’re tired and weary. Maybe fears and doubts threaten your ability to live well as a Christian.
I believe God has more peace, joy, and freedom than many of us come to know. I want this for us.
I also believe God is bigger and better than any of us can ever know. I want us to see more of Him daily.
Here we’ll journey through areas of emotional health, soul care, and spiritual growth in order to cultivate a life-well lived and a soul well-nourished. Not a perfect life, but a life reliant on the One who is perfect.
While it may not be easy, it’s worth it.
