Welcome to week one of the Pause with Thanksgiving Challenge! I am so glad you are here! Most who know me well know that I love praise and worship.

Pause with Thanksgiving Challenge...
For some reason, perhaps more than in years pass, I feel a great desire and need to pause, to really sit and revel in the grace and joy of the Lord and give thanks for all the blessings He has given us.

Sharing Truth in a Noisy World...
I’ve put aside this blog for a few months because, to be honest, I had nothing to say. I felt a little overwhelmed, a little insecure and well, I was totally flailing.

A few weeks ago I co-hosted the IF: Gathering at our local IF: Richmond/Katy. This is our second year to host an IF: Local and God has overwhelmed us both times...but for me, this time, was different. As we have prepared and planned, I can honestly say that I wasn't super excited. I had moments o... Read more
Be Overfull and Consumed this Year...
This New Year I want to be different. I don’t want to stay the same as I was. I don’t want to walk through 2016 dealing with the same selfish ambitions, the same sins, the same sorrows. I want to be overcome with grace and power and hope. I don’t want to live overwhelmed with life, but over... Read more
