Go Ye Therefore – Short Term Missions

The Great Commission - it isn't a suggestion - it is a command.

Have you ever desired to go on a mission trip, but wasn’t sure where you should start? Short term mission trips are a great way to broaden you scope of the world around you – and to see what Jesus really meant when he told us to go into ALL the world.   Too often, we say that we will go to our neighbor. Or to our family. But we … Continue reading

Waiting for Heaven (With Link Up)

How do you spend your time while you wait for heaven?

Some days, the wait for heaven seems long. My #oneword for the year is to be present¬†– to spend more time being in the moment, in all areas of my life. One of those areas is my personal walk with God. Yet, the more present I am in my spiritual life- the more time I spend with God- the more I long for home. We aren’t living in a world … Continue reading

When Fear Erases Trust

Has your fears Erased your trust?

Trust in God. Three simple words- that are so hard to do. When asked about what their favorite Bible verse is, many will tell you it is Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all thy ways, acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. We throw those three simple words out there in an almost cliche way. We … Continue reading

Be Ye Present

Beyond being in your day to day - be present

I sat staring at the screen, crying like a fool. The article brought an abstract concept like passage of time into clear, tangible terms. Having received a jar of pennies upon the dedication of her precious baby, this mom was told to remove a penny for each week she would raise her child. 18 years equals 936 pennies. That’s not a lot when you think about it in terms of … Continue reading

Christmas is now a memory we’ll treasure and we’re into¬†the New Year. Most of us made New Year resolutions. We will strive to be successful, achieve higher results, improve and make changes.

We’re … Continue reading

Having A Mission For Your Marriage

One of the most important things we can be mission minded about is our marriage.

As the first full month of January is coming to a close – in just a few days – I am thinking through my goal of being present. If you have been following me on my instagram – you know I have been off on a weekend getaway with my husband, celebrating his 40th birthday weekend.

Act Like You’re Saved (With Link Up!)

Act Like You're Saved

“…and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.” Ephesians 4:24 Once we’re saved what is expected of us? How should we act, talk, think, look and walk. Paul tells us to “put on the new self” but what does that mean? Let’s back up to Ephesians 4:17. Paul is exhorting believers to no longer walk as … Continue reading

New Beginnings

January Brings about New Beginnings - and even though we are mid way through January, you can still have a new beginning too!

I just can’t seem to sleep tonight. As I lay in my bed, I begin to think about how many blessings I have been given. Even in the midst of trials and tribulations, I have the love of my family and the love of my Savior to help me make it through. When I am worried or afraid, I can look to God for peace, comfort, and strength. I am … Continue reading
