Another week (#write31day-Day 21)

There’s hope in making it through another week, which was full of encouragement and connections. As I reflect back on my conference experience, I see… Reconnecting with ministry friends and meeting new ones Worship bringing tears to my eyes as I sat at God’s feet and rested in Him & His saving grace Promoting a … [Read more…]

One Little Word (#write31days-Day 19)

As mentioned in yesterday’s post, I am at a conference. As a church professional, I serve in a large geographical area, which covers several states.

Only Through Him (#write31days-Day 12)

There are many ways I have seen hope lost recently. I’ve not been directly impacted by any of these events, and so only speak from what I have seen, not what I have experienced. Hurricanes. Flooding. Wildfires. We provide a roof over the heads of our loved ones. We are blessed with material possessions which aid … [Read more…]
