Tithing Your Time | A Free Bible Reading Resource

I’m a wordy.  I fell in love with books in middle school. I’d check out a stack from the public library and a stack from our church library and have them read in a week. I’d return them only to leave with more stacked tall. There's a running joke in my family when my teacher… Continue reading Tithing Your Time | A Free Bible Reading Resource

Pick Up Your Pen | The Treasured Work of a Heaven Scribe

I found out I was pregnant on Christmas. Well, sort of.  The second pink line indicating a positive was ever so faint, I didn't believe it.

Why Journaling Matters

It was my sixth Christmas when I got my first journal. It was green and had a praying angel on the cover. Even though the pages would be penned in my very large learning-to-write characters and the greatest climax it ever saw was the frustration to be getting a second brother instead of a long-awaited… Continue reading Why Journaling Matters

Here’s My Heart 

I've always loved the hymn "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing." Maybe because I see all too often my own wandering heart despite my desire to have it bound to Christ. However, only recently have I really come to appreciate the deep theology tucked within the lyrics penned by Robert Robinson (1735-1790). Come, thou Fount… Continue reading Here’s My Heart
