For the Little Guys.

1/7 ((from Bridget)) My son has always loved the story of David and Goliath.  Recently I asked him, “Why do you love this story so much?”  His answer was so precious: “I like that there is a battle, between a big guy and a little guy, and that the little guy wins.” 4-7 A giant nearly…

Take My Hand.

1/6 ((from Eve)) “Then Amalek came and fought with Israel at Rephidim. So Moses said to Joshua, ‘Choose for us men, and go out and fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand.’ So Joshua did as Moses told him, and fought…

I’ve got epic legends on the…

God Takes Care of Everything.

1/2 ((from Natalie)) I started my boycott of a popular brand in 2013.  I stopped spending money on their shoes and apparel because of one ad. The advertisement was an image of a sports mega-star emblazoned with a quote that read “Winning takes care of everything.” The ad made me cringe. It was run after…

AND WIN.

1/1 ((from Kate)) I am not encouraging you to run out ((okay, it’s 1 degree outside, no one’s running anywhere literally… let me back up…)) I am not encouraging you to figuratively run out and rent the Sex & the City movie. ((okay, it’s 2018, no one is ‘renting’ anything anymore…) Yeesh! Okay, the point…
