Living an Unhurried Life in a Hurried World

  Can we start a "How to Live an Unhurried Life" support group? I'd be the first to sign up. You see, I'm not writing this post from an "I got this!" point of view. I simply want to learn how to squash the word "hurry" from my life and replace it with "holy". After all, our greatest example in living an unhurried but holy life is Jesus. Just ask Martha and Mary. Now a man named Lazarus...

25 Things to Pray for This Summer

25 Things to Pray for This Summer

Summer delivers sunshine and sweet tea but it can also present specific prayer needs. Children are out of school, parents are working from their homes with children who are happy to be out of school (which is a whole different kind of happy!), and the hustle and bustle of summer life is cranking up.   So what better time to set prayers into motion?   Here are twenty-five prayer...

3 Prayerful Ways To Prepare for Unexpected Blessings

3 Prayerful Ways To Prepare for Unexpected Blessings

Unexpected blessings catapult our faith into high gear and steady our walk of faith. I didn't realize how much so until last week when I attended the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference. As I've done over the past nine years, I showed up eager to fellowship with friends, meet new ones, and hone my craft.   But this year was different. And it had nothing to do with Covid....

5 Ways Teenagers Need Us to Pray for Them

Whether they know it or not, today's teenagers face a formidable enemy. They always have. After all, it's during the teen years we form friendships, notice every pimple, start dating, and unfortunately, come face-to-face with the mean girls. But our culture has never been as anti-Christian as it is today, dismissing (even ridiculing) truth and accepting happiness as its "holy grail".  ...

8 Places to Pray this Spring and What to Pray + Handy Download

8 Places to Pray this Spring and What to Pray + Handy Download

Prayer was never meant to stay within four walls, or spoken from a well-worn chair, or coupled with coffee. Don't get me wrong, praying in my favorite spot with coffee in hand is a delight. But when I look at Jesus, I see how He prayed in the wilderness, solitary places, on a mountain, in crowds, gardens, and with children.   Jesus prayed with the same ease as His next breath, making the...

Every Christian Will Benefit From This Book + Win a Copy!

    I have no idea where the book came from. I don't remember buying it, borrowing it, or receiving it as a gift. Nonetheless, one day in January, I stumbled across Paul David Tripp's, *Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands: People in Need of Change Helping People in Need of Change. I'd heard great things about the author so I moved the book from the back porch to the vintage...

How to Be Kind to Yourself + Free Scripture Cards

How to Be Kind to Yourself + Free Scripture Cards

We're often quick to offer kindness to others, but what about ourselves? The fact that I winced when the idea for this post popped up is just one indicator that I have a lot of growing to do in this area. Maybe it's because I was raised not to talk about myself. Just try bragging about how groovy that blue eyeshadow looked (hey, it was the 70's!) and any southerner knew what was coming...

5 Powerful Prayers to Pray for Children + 31 Prayer Prompts

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,...
