12 Books for 2022

We are more than halfway into the first month of 2022 and I am only just now turning to resolutions. Though I love the idea of starting fresh on the first of a new year, life had other plans, as so often happens. Onward. As I reviewed the year that now lays in the...

The Podcast is Back! And a Morning Prayer for You

Happy Tuesday my friends! Don't have a long reflection for you this morning, just a few things on my mind and in my prayer: ​ God has us exactly where He needs us to be – right here, right now. When we rest and rejoice in that, we can find a depth of peace that only...

Who is God in our lives, and who do we believe that He is? ​ As we enter into this fourth and final week of Advent, there's an urgency to remind ourselves of God's closeness to us. As He enters physically into our world as a baby on Christmas, we're reminded that He...

Advent Retreat Week Three: Where is the joy?

Can you believe it's already week THREE of Advent? On Saturday I was looking at my calendar and was floored to realize that we were exactly two weeks away from Christmas. In the midst of finals and job applications and a fun little cold, I completely forgot that we're...

Advent Retreat Week Two: Examining the Fruits
