In case you missed any posts, here they all are in one place. Enjoy!
In the days to follow, I remember watching as people all over our country were seeking after God. I remember hearing the word "PRAYER" used more in those days than I have in my entire lifetime. People searching the Scriptures longing for hope, longing for something more than this world has to offer. I remember seeing our country unified more than ever.
Now I watch as our country is further from God than it's ever been in my lifetime. How easily we forget God's sovereignty and that He mourned alongside of us. Just like David wrote in Psalm 27, our ultimate hope and comfort is not found in wartime victory or physical safety, but in the goodness of God. Seventeen years later we should not forget.

I recently had a situation that pushed my rejection button. It was all perceived of course, but I was physically tired, obviously spiritually thirsty, and the perceived slight drained all my rational thinking. I was ready to throw in the towel on all I was involved in.
I grasped that my thought pattern was crazy, but I was like a car whose gas light had been on for the last 20 miles. I was running on empty and in the danger zone. Crazy, irrational thoughts railed against all I knew to be true. (Continue reading here.)

God instructs us to "pray without ceasing," and in His kindness, He has supplied us with a whole book to use to guide us in our prayers! We have many favorites, but here are five passages to get you started. (Continue reading here.)
We've bolted out of the gate into our 2nd year of blogging! Here's a glimpse of what was on the blog this week. Enjoy!
We tackled a controversial subject on the blog this week. Take a sneak peak at this 4 minute intro video!
Jesus engaged people who were caught up in sin. He healed them, He protected them, He hung out with with those that, at the time, were considered the lowest of the low. He loved the sinners!
But, what you NEVER see Jesus doing is accepting peoples’ sin. He ALWAYS called out their sin, gave them opportunity to turn from it, and asked them to follow Him. This is where truth comes in!(Continue reading here.
In the book of Jude, he emphasizes that while salvation is of the utmost importance, sound doctrine and true faith cannot be twisted or manipulated. Without correct doctrine, we can’t fully understand the truth about Jesus and salvation.
This is where we have to be mindful and on our guard about the authors we read and the speakers we sit under. (Continue reading here.)
Highly likeable and relatable personalities who stand on a “Christian” platform are distorting the Word of God and the enemy is cackling at their effectiveness. These writers, speakers, vloggers, whatever wield tremendous influence over the hundreds of thousands of women who are following them.
I watch with great sadness as my fellow sisters-in-Christ stop to give these voices an ear. They think that because they sprinkle in Jesus here and there then they must be safe. They are not. (Continue reading here.
The book I had chosen to read and recommend had enough truth to pass under the “Christian” label. Unfortunately, with its feel good vibes it won the confidence of Little Red Riding Hoods everywhere, including me.
Thankfully, God prompted a trusted friend to speak the truth in love to me. The alarm sounded once more, and I finally stopped pushing snooze! Continue reading here.
Our desire for ourselves as well as for you, is that we can recognize the enemies lies and squash them before he gets any kind of a foothold in our lives. Listen or watch this message.

The past week's post all in one place.
We are reflecting on God’s blessings when we are obedient and how He uses us in different seasons of life! Maybe life is not exactly how you pictured it or had planned for it to be...if you have surrendered your life to Christ, rest assured that He will use you right where He has you!
Tears, anger, and doubt matched the onslaught of rain pelting my vehicle as I drove toward the airport. A girls’ weekend away was upon me. While most females find joy and longing at the thought of getting away, I had only angst. (Click the title to continue.)
You may know her for all of her back-to-school viral videos and everyday hilarity. We know her more intimately as Susannah, a woman seeking hard after Jesus and pointing others to Him as she goes.
Thank you Susannah for keeping it real...both in the car drop-off line and on your knees in prayer at home. Each one can be a struggle and you communicate that well. You prove that both laughter and gut-honest confession about a faith that is being stretched and strengthened is good for our souls. (Click the title to continue reading.)

Here's a blog recap of our week!
“Divide and Conquer”...it’s a phrase I have heard so many people use and I am guilty of using it myself. Here recently though, these three words have really pierced my heart and brought me great conviction. Continue Reading
Today and every day, we appreciate all the teachers who have touched our lives. I may never get my commas and tenses right. But, I will always hold this pen and remember that it was a teacher who believed in me first. Continue Reading
I was sleep-walking through one of the most amazing blessings God grants women: motherhood. This sleeper was tired of pushing the snooze button. It was time to wake up! Continue Reading
We married young; it wasn’t unusual in the 70s to marry right after high school. Ricky was the ripe old age of twenty and I was eighteen. It was ok because we knew everything about everything. At least, we thought we did. Enter reality… Continue Reading
