As Long as Life Allows

This post has been ruminating in my head for a little over six months. On June 10, just after 10 PM, my last grandparent died. I know how blessed I have been to know four grandparents and how much more to be an adult before any of them died....

Journey through Time

For the past several years, I’ve done some form of “reading the Bible in a year.” This started with my Grandfather making a family calendar each year that included all the birthdays and anniversaries, classic family photos, and Bible reading on each day. I loved that I could read...

Mom Life Together

From the creation of the world, God’s design has been perfect. He created everything in just the right order to sustain life. Light, separation of the waters above and below the land, vegetation, seasons, fish, birds, animals, and people. Just as He created the world in the right order,...

Lessons from Disney’s Encanto

My daughter’s newest favorite movie is Encanto. We originally watched it because my sister created a Math Parody Video based on one of the songs (seriously, you should watch it. You’ll learn an obscure math fact to a catchy tune). Like many people, we enjoyed the story, the songs,...

Living Christianity

An October of Possibility

October brings vibrant colors, weather changes, and a harvest Here in West Texas, the cooler temperatures take a while to stay. On the Caprock, we start our mornings around 50 degrees but we may still reach the 90s during the day. A dryer climate often means less dramatic color...

A Time to be Still

Psalm 46:10  in the Amplified Bible says, “Be still and know (recognize, understand) that I am God.” Other versions say “cease striving,” “stop fighting,” or “desist.” In context, the Psalmist is proclaiming that God is our refuge and that He is with us. There is no better place to...

Lessons from Daniel

If you “grew up in the church,” some of the events in the book of Daniel are very familiar, like the Lions’ Den and the Fiery Furnace. You may even remember how Daniel and his friends refused the king’s food or the disembodied hand writing on the wall. In...

Seek the Lord and Live

The word “seek” is found 389 times in Scripture. Two primary words in both Hebrew (and Greek) are translated as “seek.” The first, “baqash” (epizeteo) is seeking to find or take hold of something. The second, “darash” (ekzeteo) is to search, investigate, inquire, or require (crave or even demand)....
