Making the bible accessible for everyone


Understanding

Understanding

Have you ever sat down to read the Bible and felt like “I did not understand a word of what I just read?”  So you read again. And again. Sometimes things still just don’t click.  What exactly is he trying to tell us? Sometimes I even wonder: “What is the point of this story?”  Sometimes […]

Losing Focus?

Losing Focus?

  A few years ago, our family struggled with unexplained secondary infertility.  We experienced a couple of early miscarriages and were unable to find answers to our troubles.  2 years is a drop in the ocean to so many families facing infertility, but in those moments, it felt like an eternity. Those times were a […]

When Our Hearts Are Hardened

When Our Hearts Are Hardened

  Making changes can be difficult when our hearts are hard.  Soured relationships can make us fearful of new ones, failed business endeavors can make us throw in the towel, emotional distress can hinder building our own characters.  Our hearts can easily become hardened as a defense mechanism to avoid future pains.  Is that what […]

Stay the Course

Stay the Course

  Making changes is exhausting.  We must be diligently mindful of doing things differently than the habits we have created, and our minds must be centered on our goal for a change.  Keeping your mind and body going to work for something different can be so draining that we give up before any results can happen. […]

Feeling Crabby?

Feeling Crabby?

Yesterday I was irritable.  I didn’t have a reason to be, but I still felt crabby and on edge. To the fault of no one, I felt over exerted, under appreciated, and invalidated.  My own irritability left me unmotivated to finish out most of my tasks for the evening, ready for sleep. I was being no […]

At a Crossroads?

At a Crossroads?

One of my favorite verses is Jeremiah 29:11. Every time I hear someone read: “For I am conscious of my thoughts about you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you hope at the end” I am taken back to the moment that the verse first stuck out in my head.  It was […]

Fleeting Life

Fleeting Life

About 5 years ago, a friend of mine was killed in a car accident.  Her death stunned me, and it was the first time I had lost someone that was not an extremely elderly family member that had been ill for quite some time.  I had just spoken to my friend that morning. 12 hours […]

Needing Grace?

Needing Grace?

I was a complete Mom failure this week.  I failed to bring the sign I needed to pick up my son, resulting in having to get my toddler out of the vehicle and follow a series of steps in order to take my oldest son home with me.  I rushed home to do a little […]

The Heart of The Matter

The Heart of The Matter

  Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23     As Christians we must be careful about what we allow into our hearts. It can seem to be a tedious task due to how easily we are exposed in the world we live. Every day we can fill […]

You Can Always Go Home

You Can Always Go Home

We mess up. Badly.  Sometimes worse than other times, and things are such a mess there isn’t any way to undo what we’ve done.  It brings about shame, heartache, and regret. So many people say that once you leave, you can never go home again, but we are also advised to retrace our steps when […]
