Find Joy In Every Season

I have my alarm set for 4 am, my eyeglasses broke, and I’m staring at a blank screen. As I go to cry on my husband’s shoulder, he reminds me that I’m doing all the things I love.  “You’re taking it all too seriously, and […]

Let Him Fight For Us

 While I cannot recall the context of our conversation, I remember her passion.  She grew animated as she shared with me her study of 2 Chronicles 20.  There in the middle of the grocery store, she gave a testimony.  I admired her passion, boldness, and […]

Psalm 20 A Prayer For Us All

After a week of heavy-heartedness, I have a sense that we need something—a prayer for us all.  Many times when I am at a loss for words, I pray using scripture. Have you ever tried that? Using God’s words is a powerful way to pray. […]

Protect Your Peace

“Protect your peace!” That thought keeps reverberating in my head.  I wonder if that’s even a thing in 2020? And yet, the voice is clear.  So, I get out of bed, put on workout clothes, lace up my shoes, and go for a walk. I […]
