Feeding Myself on God’s Word

I've been in a weird place with our transition to our new church. I've felt loved, and encouraged, but at the same time, there's a feeling kind of like a cute new pair of shoes; they look great, but they aren't broken in and they still feel a little weird.

Tragedy and Politics

And one of the beaters just … Continue reading Oh, the Brokenness

Genesis 32:24-25 Jacob is one of the most personally relatable people in the Bible for me. Not the whole … Continue reading My “Jacob” Life
