Questions about God from A Kindergartener

Recently my kindergarten girl, Tarah, has been thinking on her own more and more. You know that stage when children start to ask all kinds of questions? She’s there. In the thick of it. Oh, she went through the typical 3 year old stage of questions. That’s a standard age for asking the proverbial “Why?” You […]

Proverbs 2028

Victory Belongs to the Lord

Welcome to Friday and the weekly Bible reading challenge check-in! When I first introduced the 2015 Bible Reading Challenge, I explained how I felt the Lord was directing me to focus on the book of Proverbs. Since then, in the last two weeks, my pastor encouraged the church to read Proverbs 3:1-15 every day for […]

The Search for Purpose in Life

You can’t shake the feeling and wish you could. It’s unruly and unsettling. The feeling bosses your mind and controls your heart. You find yourself searching for satisfaction… contentment… fulfillment. Essentially, for purpose in life. Yet it seems so elusive. If only you can make it to the next payday, things will change. If only you […]

John 3:16 for God

Free Valentine Bible Verse Printable

Today I was a bit reminiscent of the Christmas lights. I know- they had to come down at some point.  But it occurred to me that I don’t have many Valentine decorations and really, for the month of love, I could do better than my very plain mantel and bare front door. So I started […]

15 Ideas on Ways to Pray for Your Husband

  This weekend I was thinking heavily on ways to pray for my husband. Due to some changes at work, he has been working long hours and though he is strong, I know that intervening to God on his behalf will provide strength from above. Though I have a phone reminder set to pray for […]

On Guarding Your Mouth and Gaining Wisdom

I am enjoying the 2015 Bible reading challenge so much! How did your Proverbs reading go this week? I found myself reading the chapter twice on many days as  I lingered over my morning coffee.  Let’s summarize chapters 10-15 this week. I read chapter 9 before posting on last Friday, so it was included in the […]

If You’ve Ever Wished for A Zipper on Your Lips…

** Post includes a book giveaway for Karen Ehman’s new book: Keep It Shut! Words. I love them so much. They carry weight and authority. They can beautifully display love and affection. But oh when they slip out without a filter, how dangerous and damaging it can be! This week as we’re reading through the […]

When You Need the Reminder that God Forgives

You passed that old friend from years ago and suddenly, a pit sprouted in your stomach. While time had passed and you hoped everything was ok now, the issue wasn’t forgotten. The guilt from years gone by flooded over your soul once more and you hoped to quickly move on. After all, what if she hadn’t […]

30 Ways to Read Your Bible More

Today I was thinking about all the excuses I’ve used in past years not to read my Bible. Honestly, I’m embarrassed when I think over them. “I just don’t have enough time.” Really? Did I have enough time to update my social media status? Then… Yeah, I know you get it. So instead of beating […]

Because Wisdom Is Calling Us

Welcome to the Bible reading challenge check-in! It’s Friday! I have loved reading one chapter of Proverbs each day this week; how about you? Why are we reading Proverbs daily? I think we already have a general answer, even though we’re not even a fourth of the way through the book- because wisdom is calling us! […]

Learning from the Past

Last week I was privileged to write and record a fun preliminary video played just before the message at church. Our current series topic is Decades. Essentially Pastor Ken is covering what we can learn from the past to help us propel into the future. The questions from the sermon were so thought-provoking I wanted to share […]

4 Choices I Made to Organize Life

There is so much in our lives that we don’t have the privilege of controlling or changing.  Would you agree? In the last two weeks, I’ve been thinking heavily about how much better I feel when life is organized. But when I think about my overall life organizational plan, I realize sometimes I can make better choices that […]

A Prayer for Expecting Moms

Last year while I was at the She Speaks Conference, the sweetest woman passed me in the hallway, did a doubletake and called back, “Hey, are you Rachel Wojo?” I took a few steps back and we had the most beautiful conversation. “I stopped to thank you for praying for me in your Facebook page […]

How to Develop An Ear for Wisdom

Today is the first Friday in our 2015 Bible Reading Challenge and I’m so excited! I know we’ve only read one chapter so far, maybe two, depending on the time of day you’re reading this post, but I am already loving the time to focus and meditate on the single chapter. Keep in mind that […]
