Are You a Better Christian?

2/26 ((from Kate)) “How we love you, HOW WE LOVE YOU. How we want you, HOW WE WANT YOU.” Blares on repeat through my headphones as I sit outside in the sun and pause to close my eyes and lay my palms open, surely confusing other patrons at this downtown coffee shop. I desperately want Him….

Colossians 4

2/25 ((from Bridget)) There is so much that I love about scripture.  I love that the Word of God is truly living and active (Hebrews 4:12) and able to be accurately applied to our lives in the here and now.  I also love, however, that is was written at a certain point in history.  Because…

Colossians 3 Pt. 2

2/24 ((from Jess)) If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it 100 times over to the little souls that abide under our roof: “Sweetheart, I hear your ‘I am sorry’, but I want to see your ‘I am sorry.’” Now before you think I’m a cold-hearted mama who disregards the genuine apologies of growing babies, let…

Colossians 3 Pt. 1

2/23 ((from Bri)) I grew up and was raised in a Pentecostal home. I was no stranger to the power of the Holy Spirit, I just didn’t understand it. When I was a kid, I used to stay up to watch televangelists on late night programing. You know what I’m talking about: miracle spring water,…

Colossians 2

2/22 ((from Kate)) “And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow Him. Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. Don’t let…

Colossians 1 Pt. 3

2/21 ((from Megan)) “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body,…

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…
