The Word Alive

Last post I told of how God is taking care of me through this challenging season. It is often a text or a call from a friend, a verse that "happens" to pop up that speaks to my heart or a song. Just little things that remind me how close He is and that He cares about me. This weekend it was a little more. I ended up attending The Word Alive Event.

Christmas Cross

The Cross decorated for Christmas! Each element has a purpose. As we begin this Advent season keep the cross in mind. Jesus came with the cross set before Him. It wasn't just happened along the way, It was why He came, for me and for you.

Sunbeams

Before school started I took the kids to have a little fun at Crayola Experience. We were in line to do one of the activities, the girl helping the kids asked Jonathan witch mold he wanted to make "Emoji or a ring?"

My Why

I couldn't been more excited to have the opportunity to share the gospel with the kids. It wasn't about looking for responses that night. I was excited because I got to share with them God's Truth. Wither with children or adults sharing God's truth, most of all the gospel, should excite us!

Legacy of Faith

My Bear He hold many memories and more secrets than I'm willing to admit. He was a gift from my beloved Papa David (grandpa) on the last normal Christmas we had together, I was 13 (the age my oldest daughter is now). I told my mom that I wanted a "Big Bear" for Christmas and she just rolled her eyes at me. As a mom I now get this and would do the same to my kids. But, this girl knew where to go and I told Papa I wanted a big bear.

Take Courage

Faith gives us courage. Courage isn't the absence of fear. It is rising up in the face of fear and moving forward anyway. In times of fear, and there are times in this life that will scare you, let faith rise above the fear and lead you.

The Real Miracle

A mircale that this condition is gone and even the doctor said "this doesn't happen". But, the bigger miracle isn't in the taking away the hard but that My God comes close and walks with me even in the hard. In what is now our everyday life.

The Gift of Sister in Christ

There are sometimes that it is just harder to be thankful than others. At least for me, I don't know about you. Today is definitely one of those days. Oh, I know I have lots to be thankful for. But an aching heart and fear can be so blinding. What is in front of us can be so overwhelming that it is hard to look past it. Brokenness can be good when you come to God and let Him speak to you and teach you in it. But, the enemy doesn't want you to do that. He wants to keep your focus on what is in front of you. He wants to keep you isolated and stuck. We are not meant to walk this life alone. We have our loving Father who walks with us. We also have the gift of the church, of each other.
