To Those Who Have Been Hurt By Christians

To Those Who Have Been Hurt by Christians I love to write and I love to listen to podcasts. I did a 500 word per day writing challenge primarily because of The Portfolio Life with Jeff Goins. I am constantly searching for creative or writing podcasts to listen to while running, and I stumbled upon one yesterday that truly made […]

Freedom

Yesterday at my church, Church of the Highlands, we had the most beautiful voice singing a beautiful rendition of a beautiful song! Check it out below. Prepare to be blessed and get ready for a Holy Goosie moment, an arm-hair raiser!  Song at Church of the Highlands Our country may be broken and divided in a lot of places but […]

Lent Day 2: Making Room For The New Harvest

I love Leviticus. I know that sounds incredibly weird to most. God continues to show me fractals of Jesus throughout the Old Testament. Layers I could have never discovered on my own are supernaturally peeled back. The Holy Spirit divinely dances over the written word and it is like watching cream rise to the top.  “You will have such a […]

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 11

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 11 In April of 2016 I read the book Hinds Feet On High Places by Hannah Hurnard . It is the most beautiful allegory about a young woman named Much Afraid, and her journey away from her Fearing family and into the High Places of the Shepherd, guided by her two companions Sorrow and Suffering. “He makes my […]

 Hello Journeymen! I am so glad you are traveling back with me, in order to move forward into 2017 encouraged and empowered together! If you are taking your own personal hindsight look, as you track with mine, what have your journals, checkbook, calendar or social media reminded you of from 2016? And how are you going to let it propel […]

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 9

Day 9 is almost over, but not quite!  I am so glad you are still taking this hindsight journey with me, and I pray you are doing your own year-end review.  Remember, hindsight is a good teacher.  “He” is humorous, humbling and honest, if we are looking through the correct lens, the lens of Christ, not our own distorted human […]
