5 Powerful Prayers to Pray for Children + 31 Prayer Prompts

I inherited my paternal grandmother's Bible. The feather-light pages crinkle with every turn, weighed down only by the ink from her handwritten notes.   It is evidence of what I already know to be true of both grandmothers⏤they were prayer warriors.   I also have my great-grandfather's bible. Tucked inside is a torn piece of an envelope, darkened by age but lit with Zephaniah 3:17,...

Engage Your Five Senses this Winter and Behold the Wonders of God

Engage Your Five Senses this Winter and Behold the Wonders of God

Engaging our five senses opens us to moments of wonder we might otherwise miss.   "God has strewn our paths with wonders and we certainly should not go through life without seeing them." Alexander Graham Bell   An eight-foot-long window on the north side of the tiny house faces mountain ranges skirted in native trees. Just a glimpse of the majestic peaks stirs this heart to wonder....

How to Pray by Listening // A Guest Post by Crickett Keeth

Let's welcome Crickett Keeth back to Creative Pauses from The Tiny House on the Hill!   How would you describe your time in prayer? Do you do most of the talking, or do you pause to listen? When we hear the words pray or prayer, we tend to think of speaking, not listening. When we pray, we talk to God, asking for things and expressing our feelings about what’s going on in life. But...

Creating Holy Pockets of Stillness

Creating Holy Pockets of Stillness

A blessed life is one lived intentionally. And can we agree that few things in life are more intentional than growing a garden? We scout out a sunny spot, prepare the soil, choose the plants, and pluck them in the ground. I know a little something about this because growing up, we had a large organic garden⏤back before organic was cool. In the springtime, we planted tomatoes, peppers, corn,...

Cultivate A Consistent Prayer Life in 2021 + NEW GIFT + Giveaway!

While there's a lot I'd like to leave behind in 2020, my prayer life isn't one of them. For thirty years, I've celebrated the truth that God wants to be personally known, experienced, and trusted. But my time with Him hasn't always reflected it. My intentions were good, but apparently, my excuses were sometimes better, widening the door for guilt to slither in and crack open the window for...

Ways to Celebrate Togetherness While Separated This Holiday Season

It will be a different holiday season. On that, we can agree. No need to run down all the reasons why. We're very much aware of each one, but Thanksgiving and Christmas will come nonetheless. Neither set of my parents, nor my aunt and uncle, will gather around our farm table this Thanksgiving. Who will crack the corny jokes, or whip up the family dressing, or clap for the grandkids when they...

Re-Charge Your Prayer Life by Pairing Up With a Prayer Partner!

It started easy enough. I texted one morning, asking if there were specific ways I could pray for her, and in return, she asked the same. It was a simple exchange of words.   But at that moment, I realized it was more than a simple swap.   Yes, tapping requests on the phone is simple enough, but we know the true power begins the moment we lift up the person in prayer⏤speaking their...
