Ask, Seek, Knock

I have patiently waited to use my last of three blog posts written by a friend as a Christmas gift last year. We had He is Enough back in January, and The least of these in May. I’ll enjoy my week off… But I encourage you to reflect on deep faith from the raw and intimate writing of my very dear friend! May you find comfort within your own unique life experience from the gift of her words! Continue reading

Tangible Connections

When this posts, I should be lounging on a pool chair with a fruity cocktail in my hand, happily soaking up the Cancun sun with two very dear friends nearby.

Whose will be done?

The kids take turns leading our meal-time prayers. On occasion (as we sit with hands folded over a plate of hot food), this will evolve into an argument over who gets to say the prayer. This argument is followed by a sharp look from mom or dad, then a verbal reprimand, then perhaps tears, concluded with the firm reminder that this is not how we talk to God!!! Continue reading
