The battle took place around the dinner table, just as many battles with children do. However, this time we were surrounded by family…on Thanksgiving.

Rehearsing His Faithfulness

By on February 14, 2017 in Uncategorized with 2 Comments

I stood in that near-empty greenhouse. Rows and rows of bright, beautiful flowers sat perched in their buckets, tall and reverent.

By on January 26, 2017 in Christian Life with 4 Comments

Each day, we walk into a battlefield of comparison. From perfectly posed Instagram pictures to carefully worded Facebook posts, we compare our worst moments to the seemingly “best” moments of others.
