A 7th-Grade Art Lesson

My eyebrows sank in disappointment, and the perfectionist inside me started to clench her fists. What do you mean, What happens if I disagree? What happens is that I don’t get a good grade!

Unexpected Journey

There have been many times I’ve fallen into a hopeless place, wondering when, if ever, point B would come into view (whatever point B was anyway?).

A Prayer for the Lost

This world needs Jesus like never before, and we must bridge the gap! Why don’t you read my prayer for the lost and add your own words to it?

Seek His Face

We discover the truest meaning of love
when we find the One who was sent from above
We are magnetically drawn to His grace and His peace
We’re enamored by the greatness of the One who sets us free

Why Homeschool?

I agree that homeschooling is not for everyone, but if you are considering homeschooling your children and you feel lost in a sea of information, you are not alone.

Moving Day

We closed on the sale of our house on December 18th and finished moving our stuff into the Arctic Wolf. I might not have been a shining light that day, but I did hold my tongue…

Would You Dance at a Ball Game?

I see your every move. There is nothing hidden from Me. I take pleasure in your praise and worship to Me. I take pleasure when you dance before Me.

A Humble Preacher Heard by Millions

I can recognize Alistair Begg’s voice almost anywhere. His voice filled the car when I was a child. It bounced around the living room as I grew up, and has even graced my ears as an adult. He is a timeless teacher that has shaped not only my life but millions of other lives, too.

Crazy Amazing Love: 31 Pieces of Love

The concept of sin didn’t even exist yet in the heart or mind of man. Adam was complete. But God gave one simple specification to Adam: do not eat from this particular tree.

The Self-Existence of God

The intelligent boasts that there’s nothing they do not know or that there is nothing they cannot learn, but the humble admit that there’re some things they can never know.

Standing on the Offensive Line

When you find yourself in a place of offense, your mind, heart, and spirit are more than likely unsettled. You may be figuring ways to justify yourself.

Seeing Our Pain as a Gift

Experiencing rejection can be seen as an incredible gift if you choose to look at it from God’s perspective. In doing that, my prayer is that the Lord will use you to pull people that are hurting closer to Him.

A Great Earthquake

What are the odds that an author of an ancient text that claims to get his “revelations” from a divine source wrote about an exact number of people that will be killed in some future terrible earthquake and it’s now in our current day that this is mentioned?

Secret Place

The secret place can seem elusive or hard to understand how to find. At first, it was for me. But, as I spent time in prayer, reading the Bible, and just talking to Him daily, a relationship grew within me.

The Kingdom Without Isms

Our society has broken into warring political and collective camps. People are no longer identified as individuals but by beliefs and/or demographics. Group membership and identity are more important than individual actions.

Getting Wilder

Quickly, my dreamt up glamorous adventure with God turned into a death sentence. I truly thought I had put away so many things of this world.

Are You There, God? It’s Me, Rachael

It would take years of flickerless bedside lamps and syllable-silent thunder to realize God was never in them. He was talking, just not in those ways.

Ministry at Home

We are to be salt and light in the world, but we should remember that who we are out there to everyone else should also be who we are here at home.

Thought to Action

How do we control our thoughts? We must take action against negative thoughts and pursue holy thoughts to their completion.

Peace in His Perfection

We cannot be perfect this side of Heaven. Our goal is only to settle into His perfection where we can find His perfect peace and His perfect joy.

What Are You Doing for the Next Generation?

As a parent, one thing scares me more than anything else. I wouldn’t call it a constant fear. But it’s definitely a concern. What if my daughter grows up not loving Jesus Christ?

How Darren Wilson Changed My Life

Just remember the Jesus in Scripture and watch the DVDs through that lens. He is changeless. He did all kinds of amazing things; present-day healing should be no different.
