Simple Obedience

Simple Obedience

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” (John 14:15, ESV) “Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.” (Psa 119:2, KJV) I’ve been thinking a lot about obedience these past few days. God has blessed a friend through my obedience, and another friend has blessed me (and … Continue reading

I am so excited to share my friend Courtney Cohen’s new book with the world! Her message is all about finding out who you really are, who God is, and who you are *in Christ* and how that knowledge is absolutely life changing! Check out “Refining Identity”– a book with an interactive format– reads like … Continue reading

From the Heart

Eph 6:1-9   Do you ever have one of those moments, when you’re reading Scripture, that you feel so convicted yet so encouraged by the words in front of you?  Like they were meant just for you where you are right now?

Why I can say… Hello Morning!

“Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.” (Psa 90:14, ESV) ******** Almost a year ago, the Lord led me to Hello Mornings. I was introduced to the Hello Mornings Challenge through a dear friend and fell in love with the concept immediately.  I … Continue reading

The Soar and Fall of a Kite

I love to fly kites. I had actually forgotten how much I love to fly them until once, several years ago, when my parents bought a kite for each of my daughters.  We had a windy day one afternoon and so we took full advantage of it.  Outside we went with the kites and 200 … Continue reading
