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,...

4 Ways to Offer Someone A Pause this Fall (And a Gift for You Too!)

4 Ways to Offer Someone A Pause this Fall (And a Gift for You Too!)

The words pause and fall come together like a sing-a-long. They swing and sway to the melody of a season that offers natural pauses to our day. Swift breezes encourage us to bundle up and head outside for a walk, or a sit by the fire. Wild muscadines growing nearby release a fragrance so sweet and so strong, it takes root in our memories as tightly as its vine clings to an overhanging tree....

Your Invitation to Gather Around the Campfire + Mug Giveaway!

Your Invitation to Gather Around the Campfire + Mug Giveaway!

This kind of encounter with God drops me to my knees. It was an ordinary day of packing up my laptop, cords, books, banana, and water before heading up the hill to write. At the last minute, I squeezed in my sketchbook. It's heavy and cumbersome, two reasons that make it a rare haul. I climbed the hill, spread out my goods on the desk, and prayed. Lifting up our community here on the blog is...

Coming Face to Face with My Addiction to Sugar

Coming Face to Face with My Addiction to Sugar

The word addiction seems so harsh. And yet, when everyone else flooded grocery stores in March to stock their freezer with chicken, I was in the Chick-fil-A drive-through stocking up on ice cream. Their styrofoam cups supposedly keep the ice cream fresh in the freezer for weeks. Unfortunately, I can't prove it.   I would say that defines addiction.   Weight has been an issue for...

Coming Full Circle: The Story Behind the Instagram Picture

Coming Full Circle: The Story Behind the Instagram Picture

There's always a story behind the scenes, right? This story begins in the sixties when Ma-Ma (my paternal grandmother) coaxed me into her big ol' car with the promise of a fudge sickle when we returned. She knew my love language was sugar. Within minutes, we arrived at a worn, brick nursing home.   The floors were beige linoleum squares with bright specks and the walls were lined with...

Ready to Create A Travel (with God) Journal?

If you're ready to start your own travel journal, buckle up sister! I've kept many types of journals over the years -- prayer, gratitude, health, etc. -- but when I cracked open my first "Travel Journal" in January, life changed. I first read about a travel journal in Allen Arnold's The Story of With, a book mentioned in a past post, Three Books I'm Reading This Winter. It reads: "Those brave...

Searching for A New Morning Devotional? Win My Favorite Here!

Searching for A New Morning Devotional? Win My Favorite Here!

Yep, I gotcha covered! That is if you're not into full-on fluffy, feel-good words that drip thicker than syrup but leave the soul empty, hungry inside. Give me Truth in a relatable way and God will do the rest. Because it matters, right? Devotionals are an investment. Not only do they cost money (unless you win this copy!), they also become a companion of sorts. It's why pages that start...

While You Wait Outside Hospital Doors for a Loved One

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...
