Making Room For Christ: One pure and Holy Passion

I do my quiet times in the morning. I have bounced around a little and found different rhythms as time has marched on. In my first year of motherhood, I was so completely sleep deprived that I could only handle short snippets of scripture that I would mediate on all day long. My official “quietContinue reading “Making Room For Christ: One pure and Holy Passion”

Alignment and Holy Procrastination

Over the last couple years, I have gone through what I like to think of as a break-up with workout culture.

On Faith, Food, and Stewardship

 This right here, friends, is a blessing stopping me in my tracks.      I have just recently jumped into another area of service in my church. One that, honestly, I’ve been thinking I should be part of for ages and always found a reason not to.     Our meal ministry fell aside awhile backContinue reading “On Faith, Food, and Stewardship”
