http://www.hilariousgifs.com/father-teaching-his-son-a-valuable-life-lesson/ Wednesday's psalm is one that resonates with me...unfortunately. It reminds us how easy it is to trust in things we can see and touch more than we trust in God. I'm ashamed to admit how often I find myself doing that. When faced with a tough decision I will ask a friend, read a … Continue reading Who can you trust?
A few thoughts before we begin: The picture above has a mom and her kids because finding a picture the correct size for this blog format is TRICKY- but, DADS, you are so important! You set such a powerful example in your homes!Amanda touched on this last week and I hope this gives you some … Continue reading Is Your Faith Alive at Home?
*PSA - this week we will read Psalm 110 and it's really important. This psalm is both royal (it talks about the Israelite king) and messianic (it talks about the coming messiah). It is also the most quoted and alluded to psalm in the New Testament (27 times), which means we should really pay attention! … Continue reading Praise In Place Of Murmur (and a PSA)
I am over the pandemic. Admittedly, I have had it very easy! My husband and I both still have our jobs and my family is healthy. I cannot (strike that – should not) complain! But I’m over it. The sense I get is that everyone around me, whether you’ve faced significant hardships or not, is … Continue reading Why Did You Stop Fighting?
It is good to be with you this week as we cross the 100 mark! The psalms continue to teach me to look back on God’s faithfulness, so I can look live now with praise. I was convicted this week by Psalm 101 - what am I doing to live a life that is of … Continue reading Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is
If you have school-aged kids – or even younger ones in daycare/preschool – you are well aware that they have been home with you for the last 124 days. That’s four months. A third of a year. But who’s counting? I think my most-used phrases in my household and in conversations with my friends have … Continue reading Let’s Talk About Grace
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5m09rqOoxE There are so many ways to praise God, the important thing is simply that we do it. If you don't like the video above, find a different song or video you like and take a few minutes to praise our God who is worthy of all our thanks and praise. July 13: Psalm 92 … Continue reading We Were Made to Praise
Man, having an attitude of gratitude these days is HARD! It's so easy to justify my complaints these days because we are living in PANDEMIC. But, as a Christ follower, I am called to a higher standard. Jesus gave thanks outloud all the time so that people would see and know the work of God … Continue reading Gratitude Attitude
Whatever you do when you get this email, please listen to this song, it's dope (direct quote from one of the artists). A couple of this week’s psalms speak about God’s everlasting love and faithfulness toward us. This is one of the most reassuring things in my life. No matter what happens or what I … Continue reading Promises
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrNhoCVTAg4 I love putting my kids to bed at night. I like praying with them and getting those quiet few minutes to sit, talk (where applicable), and give a few more hugs before they go to sleep. The other night, while rocking, I had a profound experience with my 2.5-year-old, Georgia. Georgia is very much … Continue reading Deep Questions: Toddler Edition
