Home garden progress and life lessons

Fruit. Results. We want it but how do we get it? Sometimes we do all the right things and we are excited! Then, an unexpected setback occurs and we lose a little bit of our zeal. It's just not the same. Things get a bit real. We realize this is actually a lot of work…

God knows you and is preparing you (Exodus 13:17-18)

God purposely did not immediately lead the people straight to the promised land, which by the way, wasn't empty!! (See Deuteronomy 1:19 and beyond for a recap of what happened thus far in their 'going into the land that God promised them' journey.) They had to go and TAKE IT from the people who were…

Struggles and faith in parenting and beyond

Woke up with a strong desire to worship and pray for specific needs and specific people today.

Dealing With Conflict

I'm struggling with showing up in the world and using my voice but in the right way. I was trying my best to avoid conflict but it happened anyway.

I hope it is as helpful to you as it was to me. Let me know!

Make That Change

"Make That Change" is how Michael Jackson finished his song "Man in the Mirror." I love that song. To me it talks about the value of personal responsibility but I'd like to add that as Christians, we must first go to God. Now I know that God and His words have been taken out of context as well as our actions (or inactions) in history to choose our way verses God's way. Those decisions have caused ripple effects of pain and death all around the world for generations. As I try to look at the entirety of the Bible, I can see how God has indeed provided the Way for us to live in these times today, however difficult they are. Please let me know if I've twisted the Truth of God or hold it high in this latest blog post, which is what I always aim to do. I hope this encourages you in some way to continue to go to the Lord in prayer. He is already working throughout these difficult times and may we continue to trust in Him following His lead to love as He has loved us.
