Devotional: He Will Fight For You (Ex. 14)

As I continue to listen through the Bible, I came across a verse in Exodus Last month that really stood out to me. “But Moses told the people, ‘Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord himself will…

Devotional: By the Brook

On Sunday our church had the opportunity to hear God’s Word from John Stroup, one of the founders of Freeway Ministries, a ministry out of Springfield (and Crossway Baptist Church) that ministers to criminals, drug addicts, and people that most would turn away. He preached a message I know well and hold dear to my…

Devotional: A New Beginning

Well, I’ve already blogged in 2019 almost as much as I did throughout 2018. This year I plan on posting a lot more through my blog and my YouTube channel. I plan on writing more devotionals than anything else and hope to go a little deeper with videos as I study through the Word, so…

A New Year: A Time of Hope

Here we are. That time of year again when you can’t help but look back at all of the experiences, trials, turning points, moments, and memories of the previous year.

Spring is in the Air

Springtime. My favorite season of all. Things that once appeared dead come back to life- the very breath of God breathes life back into them again. Flowers’ blooms grace the earth with their presence. Grass peaks from beneath the surface. The sweet sound of birds ring in your ears as they return. Life that lies…

Rejection

Rejection is something that I battle on a daily basis, whether it’s actual rejection or perceived rejection, it attempts to destroy my soul.  I always want to share my story, my heart, my life with whoever will hear. I recently had the priveledge of writing a guest blog for the organization Leading and Loving It,…

For my Husband…After 12 Years

Dear Husband, We have spent 15 years in the ministry together and the last 12 years as husband and wife. Throughout that time, we have seen some joy and some sorrow, some laughter and some tears, some ups and some downs. Through it all we have walked together, side by side, hand in hand, for…

From These Ashes

Beauty. In the midst of suffering, brokenness, devastation. Is it possible?
