Broken Things: Find Him Friday

Sweet, sweet Jesus. Some days are emotionally and physically draining. Today I have felt the fullness of my brokenness, the enormity of my lack and my inability to control…anything.  Father thank you so much for walking with us through the past eight weeks.  I have felt Your presence so near, so sweet, and so tender….

Help a Girl Out: Women in the Word

This week’s Woman in the Word is probably my favorite one so far. She is incredible. This woman has shown over and over that she will not give up. She fought for her family, her friends, herself. Praise is her weapon and armed with truth, her sword is the Word of God. She is a…

Help a Girl Out: SJG 2018 Summer Bible Series

Jason and I have been living in our current house coming up on 10 years. Over the course of that decade we lost a baby,  brought home two daughters, one dog, four cats, one case of head lice, multiple viruses and said goodbye to many guinea pigs, fish, baby rabbits, and lizards. We just recently…

Focus on Not Dying: SJG 2018 Summer Bible Series

To celebrate my 40th year of life, Jason whisked me away to one of our favorite cities, Asheville. In previous trips we had toured the Biltmore and we had explored downtown; this trip was for adventure. The winding Blue Ridge Parkway literally took us straight up Mount Pisgah for over an hour. Each turn took…

Calloused Knees: Find Him Friday

Every day this week I feel like I have been forgetting something or missing something. It’s driven me crazy. So with a sigh of relief, that I didn’t in fact forget any appointments or leave a kid somewhere, and a shout out to God, I am saying “so long” to this week. I’m so thankful…

Calloused Knees: Women in the Word

Hannah is the first sister who comes to mind when I think about prayer. I know she is referenced often for women who’s heart’s desire is to be a mother. That was the cry of Hannah’s heart. Hannah is described in 1 Samuel as coming before the Lord in a posture that is bent low,…

Calloused Knees & Heart: SJG 2018 Summer Bible Study

There’s a difference between conviction and condemnation. Holy Spirit convicts. The enemy condemns. God corrects with a loving heart, chastens His children. The enemy is an accuser of the brethren. I have realized the difference lately while scrolling through Facebook. A friend of mine whom I met at a writing conference posted this picture on…

Rebellious Rule Follower: Women in the Word

There’s a lot I don’t know about God. I certainly don’t claim to know it all, Lord, I don’t even claim to know a little! But one thing I know for certain is, that God is so freaking cool. I know…deep theology, huh? I know that His love for His children is so intentional. Always…

My Problem: Women in the Word

I’m going to be honest. I have a very bad habit of making snap judgements. Usually about people and their motives. The phrase, “innocent until proven guilty” in my small mind is usually, “suspicious until proven genuine.” As a librarian, the golden rule is, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” But I’m guilty. It’s…
