Give Thanks

The other night as I lay in bed, not quite tired enough to drift off to sleep, I turned over to see my strong husband and beautiful pup fast asleep next to me. (Yes, we have succumbed to letting Aslan sleep with us. Don’t ask me how we do it- it’s cramped, and most nights […]

God is…Present

One of the promises of the Lord that I hold close is that He is ever present. He has promised us that He will never leave nor forsake us. There is nothing we can do that will turn Him away, nothing that can make Him take a break from us, or give up on us. […]

Holy, Holy, Holy

God is Holy. We know that God is holy. We sing “holy, holy, holy” in church. We read of His holiness all throughout scripture. And yet, I was just telling Jeff this morning that I still can’t grasp His holiness. I’ve been doing this study on the attributes of God this summer; it has been […]

Victim of Grace

Okay, I know it has been a loooong time since updating the blog! Jeff and I have had a whirlwind of a month. We traveled to 5 different countries. A doozy, I know!

What Mask Are You Wearing?

I’m so thankful for my husband! I love his heart and his passion for truth & grace. Since last Thursday, he’s decided to make a short “nugget of truth”. (One of many “Jeffisms!” Or you could say it’s simply part of his “Jeff-ness” according to “You, Me & Dupree”. Love!) His hope is that it’d […]

Burden Rollers

Sometimes life can seem so heavy. The burdens we carry seem so big. Whether it’s small things that add up, or big issues that weigh us down. In the mundane, or the unordinary. I vividly remember spring of 2011- I was healing from a difficult break up, while at the same time starting to rekindle […]

Hope in Trials

Trials. As my youth pastor said, “If you’re not in one right now, then you just finished one, or there is one on its way.” Not to be a downer! (Happy Friday!) But it’s true. As believers, God didn’t say he’d protect us from trials, but rather he said they would come. However, God doesn’t […]
