It’s Time to Design Your Summer

Hello friends, and happy Tuesday! ​ Today I want to explore something that one of my favorite podcast hosts, Gretchen Rubin, encourages her audience to do, which is to intentionally design their summer. The idea is simple, and so good: it's an encouragement to make...

The Most Important Question to Ask Today

Happy Tuesday, friends! ​ Instead of a longer letter this week, I want to offer a simple question for reflection, posed this past week by a very good and very holy friend. ​ Here it is: "Lord, what is Your will for me today?" ​ That's it. Simple, clear, and leads us...

Saying No

No Ordinary Days
