Better Get Ready. Things Have Changed.

The point is–it’s on YOU now. You can’t just attend and pretend. You can’t serve and perform for your spot in the Kingdom (not that you really ever could, ya know). The truth is, we are staring ourselves in the face, some of us for the first time in a long time. No more distractions (come on, seriously, get off Netflix). No more excuses (“I’m just too busy” or “I can’t find the time”). No more passing the buck and placing blame–we have to face our current reality and choose to join God in this.

What I did on my Coronavirus Staycation

The couch is now a trampoline. I’ve stopped fighting it at this point. Jumping seems to be a requirement for my four year old’s sanity. Our carpet – a cereal bowl. Yep, I find a new Cheerio every 5 minutes. Even after I’ve just vacuumed. Approximately 3.5 million flecks of glitter cover surfaces like an unwanted electric flannel blanket in the sweaty heat of summer. It’s so bad that I keep finding it on my infant’s head.

It’s like when Moses had to lift his arms to win the battle. Kenny Loggins was holding up my arms. Thank you, Kenny.”

Why’d the Introvert Cross the Road?

by Jessie Flowers I like my cozy little corner of the road. I like comfort and quiet. A lot. Throughout my life, I’ve enjoyed being alone. I enjoy eating by myself, going to the movies by myself, cooking by myself, shopping by myself, walking by myself. Thankfully, I like me. Maybe it’s because I grew up in a really rural …

Authority or Running?

By Ashley Orrell-Jones “Is authority really even that important? Why do we have authority anyway? Especially in America–after all, this is a country founded on freedom. I should be able to do whatever I want, whenever I want.  #freewill, right? I mean, no one knows me like I know me. I know what I need, and what is best for …
