Colossians 1 Pt. 2

2/20 ((from Eve)) Approximately ten years ago my pastor preached through the book of Colossians and I’ve never gotten over it. I’ve come back to the glorious truths about Jesus over and over in the last ten years, and the prayers that Paul prays have stuck with me. Today, I have the privilege of unpacking…

Colossians 1

2/19 ((from Natalie)) Imagine writing a letter to an entire city’s worth of believers, a people you have never met in a place you have never been. How would you start? Mine would probably go something like: “Dear (people), Hi my name is Natalie…”  I’d probably ramble on about myself some more. I’d surely feel…

Sister Sister.

2/18 ((from Bridget)) If you know me well, you might have heard me say this (and you will most definitely hear me say it again), “I love to love!”  I am often reluctant to compliment myself but, in this arena, I will actually admit it – I am good at loving others.  I like to…

A Rich Heritage.

Thanks for your prayers and well wishes for the arrival of our baby boy! We are so grateful for God’s kindness in this season, and I am so appreciative of the writers who stepped in the last few Saturdays so that I could acclimate to my new role as “Mom”. Thank you, friends! 2/17 ((from Eve))…

Family Over Everything.

2/16 ((from Bri)) The phrase “It takes a village to raise a child” rings true in my family. Both of my parents have always been very present for my siblings and me along with my aunts, uncles, and cousins. It was instilled from a young age that family always came first, came before anything else….

Our Propped Up Arms.

2/15 ((from Jessica)) You wanna know what passage of Scripture brings tears to my eyes within seconds of reading it? You wanna know what passage of Scripture comes to mind when I think about loving friendships and intimate gal-pals? You wanna know what passage is near and dear to me this Valentine’s Day? It’s found…

Dearly Beloved.

2/14 ((from Megan)) Like the birth of Christ in His crude and unsanitary delivery into the world to deliver us from sin has evolved into twinkle lights and festive gift exchanges, so has gone the way of Saint Valentine’s remembrance to Russel Stover and heart shaped jewelry. Lest I sound like a scrooge and we…

Mama’s Arms. Papa’s Heart.

2/13 ((from Natalie))   “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!” I John 3:1 … We didn’t know what was going on. We just heard distressed screams coming from his bedroom. My husband and I exchanged a worried glance. Spurred by our paternal/maternal…

Brotherly Love.

2/12 ((from Kate)) Love splashes all around us this week! I have a stack of shiny red and pink cards at my elbow just waiting to be stamped and sent. Whether you smooch your way through St. Valentine’s Day or sip your bodyweight in mimosas to celebrate your Galentines – this week, Cupid will be…

The Discipline of the Mind.

2/11 ((from Bridget)) It was the spring of 1995.  I was entering my senior year of undergrad and I was applying to medical school.  Back in the day, we were given a blank sheet of white paper and on it we were to write our “personal statement.”  This page was our opportunity to appeal to…

The Discipline of Joy.

2/10 ((From Kirsten)) *As Eve spends a few weeks away from the computer to snuggle her babe, we have been thrilled to welcome writers who are popping in on Saturdays to share their unique voice + perspective with you. Today’s post is from Kirsten, a mother of three beautiful boys – two who live with her…

The Discipline of the Body.

2/9 ((from Bri)) I serve on staff at a growing church in Florida. We are seeing God move and bless our ministries in so many ways and we are forced to ask ourselves a question: Can we be trusted with what God is giving us? This question begs us to learn the importance of stewardship….
