Check Your Gaze, Girls

Check Your Gaze, Girls

I will never poke fun of Peter again. Ever. Take a few moments to read Matthew 14:13-36. What are your thoughts? Here’s Jesus, feeding five thousand men with a mere five loaves of bread and two fish.  (And that’s not counting the ladies and mass of kids.) Not only that but how many full baskets of broken pieces do the disciples have left over? Twelve. Twelve. A personal feast for each of them. Who ...[Read More]

Come with Me to the Water

Come with Me to the Water

Come with me to the water, friends. Come with me. This simple statement has echoed in my mind this past week. Over and over, this rhythm of words has hummed through my soul, and this idea of water and washing has pulled me deeper into the Word and placed you on my heart. Water heals and cleanses and purifies, yes? It washes away the dirt and grime, removing the ugly and the nasty and the dirt.  &# ...[Read More]

And did I mention our lovely June and July temps? Who doesn’ ...[Read More]

Are you aware that June 8th is National Best Friend Day? It’s a real thing, y’all, although I’ve never seen a Hallmark card to celebrate it. Have you? No matter. Never pass up an opportunity to throw a shindig! Grab your favorite Betty Crocker cake mix and icing and a tub of Cookies and Cream and have at it. I think we should take advantage of this obscure national holiday to chat about best frien ...[Read More]

Are there Icebergs in Australia?

Are there Icebergs in Australia?

One of my all time favorite books on THE PLANET is a kid’s book. No surprise there, right? Don’t laugh. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is a must-have for any personal library. You’d be amazed how many hidden gems you can uncover in a short story geared to second graders. Over the past six months, I’ve had more than my share of stinkin’ hard days. Mornings where I’ve wo ...[Read More]
