One Simple Way to Engage with Scripture (& A Color-Me Download!)

  Reading Scripture is valuable. Engaging Scripture changes a person. I know because it changed me. A babe in Christ at the age of twenty-seven, I only knew the basic Bible stories: Jesus on the cross, Adam and Eve, David and Goliath, and The Ten Commandments, thanks to Charlton Heston. Granted, those basic stories are some of the most beautiful, but God used Precept Ministries and Kay...

Engaging Our Five Senses this Spring!

Engaging Our Five Senses this Spring!

Never was Spring more welcomed than this past March. Longer lit days, the promise that when one season closes, another will open. I wonder if we'll notice more this spring as we work, play, and do school from home. If the necessary pause in our society will heighten our awareness to God's goodness in ways we all experience -- salvation, biblical community, a baby's birth, nature -- as well as...

One Way to Answer When Wisdom Calls + Journal Giveaway!

Do you hear her? "Does not wisdom call? Does not understanding raise her voice?" (Proverbs 8:1 NIV) Perhaps it's because I followed unwise whispers for my first twenty-seven years (and saw the devastation of those choices) that now, I can't lean in far enough to hear wisdom's voice. God says if we lack wisdom we can ask for it, and He will give it generously and without fault. (James 1:5) He...

30 Meaningful Things to Do If You’re Self-Quarantined

Well, those are words I never expected to type, but here we are. I'm not in a panic over the Coronavirus, but it's true that some, perhaps many of us, may end up self-quarantined or otherwise homebound. But here's the thing:   Every opportunity holds the potential to become meaningful.   Be very careful, then, how you live -- not as unwise but as wise -- making the most of every...

Tea for Two // A Quiet One-on-One Gathering with God

Tea for Two // A Quiet One-on-One Gathering with God

Gathering each week to worship the One true God is life-giving. Gathering with the One, quiet and alone, is a sacred delight.   This gathering requires no preparations. Simply come.   Sometimes, especially after a hard season in life, or in the middle of one, I find comfort in setting an intentional table for two. This tea time with God isn't a weird "fluffy feel good" practice....

Praying With Our Eyes Wide Open

Praying With Our Eyes Wide Open

Literally. I know, I know. It goes against everything we learned growing up. Bow your heads and close your eyes. To do anything different seems awkward. But within my four walls, I welcome the difference, always praying with my eyes wide open. When it comes to praying with others, however, I cave to tradition.   I don't want to look weird or feel out of place -- and my spirit groans...

3 Ways to Pray More Intentionally + A Tiny Journal Giveaway!

Intentional is my "one-word" for the year. Some think the one-word movement is hokey. I know because that was me not so long ago. And yet, in a world that tugs on us with the same fervor as a hungry toddler, embracing a word that points us to the Word offers an intentional act that can help us stay focused.   Many areas in life deserve more intentionality on my part, but none more than...
