How to Put Your Mind to Rest at Bedtime

How to Put Your Mind to Rest at Bedtime

I'm convinced that my thoughts sleep during the day so they'll have abundant energy to run laps at night. Not so long ago, I went to bed at 9, or at least the body went down for the count. My mind, however, buzzed. I usually stay in the bed, hoping to fall asleep, but this time, I got up and pulled out a journal. It was midnight. After a brain dump, it became apparent that all the thoughts...

God is Still Speaking Through This Devotional (And How to Win a Copy!)

God is Still Speaking Through This Devotional (And How to Win a Copy!)

  It's the only devotional I've read four (soon to be five) consecutive times. Priscilla Shirer's Awaken: 90 Days with the God Who Speaks welcomes my soul like an old familiar friend. It settles in smoothly but never grows weary of speaking truth and timely words of advice. Who wouldn't want to welcome this kind of friend over and over again?   One benefit of reading a devotional...

Break Free from Spiritual Claustrophobia!

Break Free from Spiritual Claustrophobia!

I'm no stranger to claustrophobia. Let's see. There's the time I almost took out an entire Boy Scout troop trying to get out of the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum, and the time I climbed six stories instead of taking the elevator...two weeks after a c-section. Enclosed spaces squeeze my lungs and numb every limb on my body (except those required to climb over scouts).   King David...

Living an Unhurried Life in a Hurried World

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".  ...

7 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...
