"Assumptions of Grace" At first glance, it might sound like optimism, but it's more than that. It's choosing to trust God and look at people the way God sees them. I love that term and I loved this week's featured post by Kylie Howell, called, Stop Waiting For the Other Shoe to Drop. I hope you'll read it and be as encouraged by it as I was.Read More
“If our kids never struggle with their faith, they will have borrowed convictions.” –Josh McDowell
I was raised in a Christian home. My mom was a children’s pastor. I felt like I was always at church. But when I got to high school, I started having doubts about my faith. I was no longer interested in taking everything my parents said at face value. I had to figure it out for myself. More importantly, I needed the Holy Spirit to help me…to change my heart. I could no longer rely on my parent’s faith. It had to be my own.Read More
This week's featured post for Grace and Truth is by Horace Williams of Pleasing to the Potter. It's called. Stand Strong in Your Faith in the Midst of Suffering. It's a familiar question. Why does God allow suffering? Recent events in the news have a lot of people thinking and talking about the topic of suffering. Horace has the perspective of someone who has suffered deeply. He had a stroke a few years ago. That experience brought Horace closer to God and it has served in many ways to bring God glory. Horace writes with wisdom and sensitivity about this difficult subject. I really appreciated the post that he shared last week. I hope you'll go say hello and be encouraged by what Horace has to share.Read More

I hope you'll click over, say hello, and be encouraged.Read More
I never thought of myself as a fierce woman until I had kids. The depth and ferocity of my feelings, when I perceive something as a threat to my children, came as a surprise to me.
"Every person will go through a time of transition, and whether you are excited or dreading the change, God wants to gift you with lessons about Himself. Don’t cling too tightly to the comforts of your life because this world isn’t your home. In an instant, everything can change, but God is trustworthy with your uncertain future." -Darby DuggerRead More
They walk very slowly up the aisle of the church, wrinkled hands clasped, and take their places together every week, front and center. Always together, softly swaying to the music, lifting hands in prayer, never letting go with the other set of hands. They are one. When the music turns lively, their hands swing together to the beat and the man’s feet start a little jig.....Read More

Instagram is one of my favorite places to be on social media. I have a lot of fun there and I'm often inspired by the creativity, the beauty, and the inspirational words. I also love the behind the scenes peeks I get into other people's lives (I love the cute kids and animals).
