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. Like, when you buy a … Continue reading Feeding Myself on God’s Word

Just a Thought

Sometimes our feelings tell us that God is silent. But when we complain that God is silent, when we're straining to hear the voice of God, what we're really saying is that we have exhausted this final decisive Word He has spoken to us in the person of Jesus and in the pages of Scripture. … Continue reading Just a Thought

ABC Bible Memory Verses

I've been working on these with my 2 and 3 year old. They actually end up being set to little tunes that pop into my head. It's amazing the power music has to cement things into our memory. If you don't believe me, just think about all the ridiculous songs you wish you didn't know … Continue reading ABC Bible Memory Verses

Christianity in the Public Sphere

There has been a wave of controversy (ugh, I can't stand that word, and I know I'm the last to the party on this one) over Lauren Daigle's response in her Ellen interview regarding homosexuality as a sin. Now before I go further, this post is not about Lauren, it's about the Church as the … Continue reading Christianity in the Public Sphere

The Need for Discipleship

I have to say, for the majority of my life, I lived very sheltered. Not sheltered from culture, no!

No, I was sheltered from the Truth. … Continue reading The Need for Discipleship

Prayers for my Boy

My two year old son has been having some odd symptoms lately that suggest, according to the internet, everything from low potassium levels, Celiac disease, type 1 diabetes, or cancer. I'm hoping to eliminate the worst case scenarios from that list of possibilities, but as a mama, I'm naturally concerned for my little man. I … Continue reading Prayers for my Boy

Why I Stand By TBC

Here in East Tennessee, there's been a bit of a controversy in the news lately over a local Baptist Church who was voted out of the Tennessee Baptist Convention (TBC). The issue stemmed from the church hiring a female pastor, a role which according to Baptist polity only a man is elligible to fill. In … Continue reading Why I Stand By TBC

My Little Farm Boy

My son is so much fun to watch. He is learning and growing and I can't believe how entertained I am by him. Today he's been rather contrary. It's raining outside so I pulled out the box of indoor activities; blocks, flash card games, coloring... Nothing doing. He WANTS to be outside in the rain! … Continue reading My Little Farm Boy
