While You Wait Outside Hospital Doors for a Loved One

It's a helpless feeling, isn't it? Leaving loved ones on the stoop of hospital doors, entrusting healthcare workers to fill in the gaps we want to fill but can't. Lives lost, dream weddings postponed, jobs eliminated, and the inability to enter health facilities with loved ones being admitted, are just some of the situations we find ourselves in these days. Several weeks ago, my stepmom took...

Engaging Our Five Senses this Summer + Starbucks Giveaway!

  Afternoon storms, buzzing bumblers, and Ricky the lizard give it away. Summer is rounding the corner. And although this is the season known for relaxation, it can become one of the busiest in no time flat. If I'm not careful, my heart can become a hurried one, drying out quicker than the beach towels sunning on my deck after an afternoon swim. When I hear the edges of my heart begin to...

Ten Ways to Show-Up for Others this Summer!

  Because that's what we do, right? As our nation slowly unfolds into a new normality, we're all navigating what it means to go to church, to gather with friends, and to eat out {thanks to Chick-fil-A, I conquered this one early on.} But here's one truth we know:   We can help others draw closer to Christ from behind our doors or in person. That's the beauty of the show-up.  ...

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!

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

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....

Today’s post is a gift to those who will find th Today’s post is a gift to those who will find themselves outside a hospital, cancer treatment facility, or doctor’s office, waiting on a loved one who is  inside being treated.

My dad landed in the ER several weeks ago. My stepmom wasn’t allowed inside so she took her helpless feeling to the car and waited for someone to give her an update.

For this reason, and for the many others I know who’ve done the same, I created a sensory-based mini-devo, along with an inspiring coloring sheet, to keep in your car... because we never know when we’ll need it. 🙏🏻💕
