I am Thankful for You!

When I began this little blogging adventure in early 2015, I did not know what to expect. I felt compelled to write, as there were (and still are) so many misconceptions about God, the Bible, the truth, and Jesus, within the church and the world. I anticipated criticism. I expected it to be difficult. What… Continue reading I am Thankful for You!

Another trip around the Sun!

I've seen a lot of life over the past several years. Travel. College. Marriage. Market crashes. Miscarriage. Children. Career changes. Relocation. (A LOT of relocation) Loss. Laughter. Change seems inevitable. They say the only two constants in life are death and taxes, but I disagree; God is the only true constant. Whether we follow Him… Continue reading Another trip around the Sun!

How do we Express our Gratitude to God?

Do I give the Lord perfunctory thanks and praise because I know it is expected? Am I in awe of His precious blessings, thanking Him like my kids thank me on Christmas when they receive a long-awaited gift?

A Scripture Writing Plan for November

Copying God's word has many benefits. For one, it focuses our hearts on certain words and concepts and commits them to memory. In this post, I have compiled a list of verses for you to copy, centering around thankfulness and gratitude to God.

The Beauty of Gratitude

Do not allow your thanks to become threadbare because you are not as prosperous as someone else. A grateful heart must be fed, and the best way to feed it is remembering what God has given instead of focusing on what he has withheld.

A New Life Has Begun!

Praise the Lord with me, my friends—a new life has begun! Late last night, our middle daughter came to us and said she wanted to be baptized. Her heart has pondered this decision for quite some time. She has done lots of bible reading on her own and asked us to explain sin, baptism, and… Continue reading A New Life Has Begun!

If Chaos is Controlling Your Family

Two things never cease to amaze me: 1) How quickly life moves from calm to chaos 2) How God consistently provides—especially in the chaos. The last five days of my life have been like something from a comedy show. If I were watching myself on TV, it would be hilarious. It's one of those segments… Continue reading If Chaos is Controlling Your Family

If You’re Overwhelmed With What You Should Pray

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, ESV In the chaotic frenzy of life it is our nature to forget. We forget that person we said we would pray over. We forget God’s answered prayers in the… Continue reading If You’re Overwhelmed With What You Should Pray

You will never look at your laundry the same

I beamed with satisfaction as I folded the last pair of socks. Feeling a renewed sense of vigor, I decided to get a head start on tomorrow’s laundry. I turned to my daughter, who was sitting in the chair reading, and asked, “Would you mind grabbing the clothes from your hamper, as well as your… Continue reading You will never look at your laundry the same
