Purpose in the Path

Good Friday is quickly approaching. Always an incredible day to sit and reflect on what happened that day over two thousand years ago. A jaw dropping journey that still stirs our hearts in wonder as we process our feelings of inadequacy asking ourselves, ‘How can it be?’  A recent family hike led my mind toRead more

Is this what prayer has become?

I heard it described once that telling someone you will pray for them is a simple gesture of kindness, sort of an acknowledgement, as if to tell another they aren’t alone – a pat on the back of sorts. To that individual I hold no thoughts of judgement, only heartache and wonder – is thatRead more

Waiting still

Read: 1 Samuel 13 As a parent, my husband and I frequently tell our children to wait. Wait to cross the road. Wait, that food is hot. Wait – his fingers are in the door! Wait, homework comes first. Wait for that snack, dinner is almost ready. Wait…just wait, lots of waiting but very goodRead more
