God’s Provision ⏤ Even Before We Know We Need It // Guest Post by Edie Melson

Soul Care When You're Grieving

Who would choose to write a book on grief—and how could that be God’s provision? The third book in my Soul Care series is on grieving. I signed the contract for this series of books in 2018 and the publication of the books was the order set up then. The series idea was born out of a stressful time of caregiving and loss while my dad was in the last stages of Alzheimer’s. The first two...

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,...

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

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...
