Be Who You Are

Find Where You Will Be Celebrated

“A wise woman builds her home, but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands” (Proverbs 14:1) As a woman in my home, I have the ability to build it up or tear it down…with my own hands. The actions I take, the words I speak and the tone that I set in […]

My Thoughts on September 11th

Finding Time to Pray

Finding Time to Pray

“Finding Time to Pray? I’m trying to accomplish a bazillion other things!” Isn’t that the challenge of our modern life? It is for me. It used to bother me that I didn’t set aside an entire hour to read the Bible and write lengthy prayers in my journal. It used to bother me that I […]

Eat This Book

Eat This Book

Learning to Crave the Word of God above anything else. I recently noticed that I’ve been going through a spiritual anorexia. I haven’t been feeding on God’s Word. Instead, I’ve been replacing it with my own plans and strivings. This has resulted in my feeling tired, snappy and worn out. This is not the way to live. I […]

The Book of the Covenant

Then he took the book of the covenant and read it in the hearing of the people; and they said, “All that the LORD has spoken we will do, and we will be obedient!” (Exodus 24:7, NASB) God really wants us to recite and hear His Word. What struck me about this particular verse however is […]
