Better Together

No one has it easy. This world is rock hard and dimly lit. We’re all struggling individually and as couples to keep our eyes focused on Jesus. Yet, when we come together the light of Jesus in each of the ten of us makes the room bright. … More Better Together

Day 8: {truth} or dare? A dangerous game of name calling

I refuse to be judgmental of Naomi.  I’ve participated in this dangerous game of name calling more times than I care to admit.  My name Lisa holds beautiful meaning:  Oath of God, God is satisfaction and in an English translation – My God is bountiful.  When I choose the truth of my name, I love my name.  Who wouldn’t want to be called ‘My God is bountiful’? … More Day 8: {truth} or dare?

Saturday Share: Daily Bread with Jordan Headlee

So why does daily bread hit home you might think?  It wasn’t because the grocery shelves were empty.  It wasn’t because of price gouging what was left.  Driving US 41 most of the way – back country roads, singing with the radio, windows down, with my 4 favorite people in our tiny Ford Escape; it was stress-free and kind of fun.  Realizing if I had to start again with just my children and my wife we’d be ok.  They are my daily bread.  A house, stuff, toys, everything left behind could be done without or replaced. … More Saturday Share: Daily Bread with Jordan Headlee

…What I have I give you

Because we belong to Jesus (we are His and He is ours) we are able to meet overwhelming circumstances face to face with confidence and bold JOY.  Jesus is our example.  He encountered crowds of physically, emotionally and mentally broken and hurting people who pressed in on Him everywhere He traveled.  We carry God’s compassion, just as Jesus did; so we don’t have to duck from any person in distress. … More …What I have I give you
