Between a massive migraine and a stomach bug, I don’t have much of an introduction for this week’s featured post…[Read more…] about 8 Scriptures To Get You Excited About Jesus
Grace and Truth Link Up
If you’ve read this blog for long, you know that I love the grace the Gospel offers.
And that I’m no fan of the boot-strap Gospel. Nothing in me wants encourage others (or myself) to try-harder or just do-better. Everything in me clings to the fact that Jesus paid it all on the cross.
Because of His sacrifice, we are already, always, completely forgiven.
There is nothing for us to do, because He did it all.[Read more…] about Encourage Yourself With Grace and Truth
Mother’s Day is just around the corner. If your children are still little, you have probably been getting handwritten notes and crafts they created at school. Maybe some flowers or cards.
On the bulletin board next to my desk I have a Mother’s Day project one of my girls brought home years ago. It’s titled, “My Marvelous Mother.” Down the side it has the letters that spell out mother and next to each of them her teacher had her write something that started with that letter. And then she colored the paper to the point where her penciled words are barely legible. But they are there, and they mean the world to me.[Read more…] about Dear Mom… (And The Grace and Truth Link Up)
I have been totally, and completely, overwhelmed this week. I started a new organization system at the end of last month that helped me feel like I got a handle on things… so what did I do? I took on more work. Now I feel like an organized sinking ship. I’m full of good intentions, but still completely overwhelmed.

Have you ever felt afraid to be yourself?
You probably didn’t think of it that way, but you just act a certain way around certain people. You know, because it’s more acceptable. You want to fit in…[Read more…] about Grace and Truth So I’m Free To Be Me…
Good Friday is upon us once again.
I don’t know how this season finds you… if you have steeped yourself in Jesus the past 40 days and are feeling spiritually ready for all that surrounds this amazing celebration of our Savior or not. But I’ll be really honest with you… That’s not where this Good Friday finds me.
This year has been rough.
The last two years have been rough.
And as much as I love Jesus, it’s been hard to focus on celebrating His life and resurrection. That’s not a pretty truth, but it’s the honest truth.
So, as I sit here at my desk writing and pondering at 1 AM instead of sleeping, I’m reminded of a post I wrote a couple years back.
It was a reminder to myself that Easter isn’t a feeling, but a fact.
The death and resurrection of Jesus, our very salvation, isn’t based on our ever changing feelings, but they are, and ever will be, indisputable facts.

Have you ever walked into a room full of people and felt like you were completely alone?
Many, many times.
I remember driving to the women’s Christmas party our church was hosting one year and giving myself a pep talk just so I wouldn’t turn around and flee. I was new to the church. And while I had been invited, I didn’t know anyone. Not really.[Read more…] about Grace and Truth for When You Feel Like You Don’t Belong
The shades of love… if you’re wondering, I’m not talking about the 80’s dance music or lingerie. I’m talking about the varying degrees and different definitions we have for love.[Read more…] about Grace and Truth and The Shades of Love
Do you ever feel left out or forgotten? Like if you disappeared the whole world would just go on without you? Okay, maybe your family needs you, but your church family wouldn’t notice, or your work place wouldn’t care? Maybe your school or your friends wouldn’t take note? Or maybe it’s your extended family that overlooks you?
Have you ever felt that way? Like you have nothing to offer?[Read more…] about Grace & Truth & The God Who Sees Me
