Let. It. Go Book Review
February 1, 2018
Women are wired to control. We make sure the house is clean, the meals are prepared, the beds are made, the children are dressed, and everyone gets to where they’re going on time. But sometimes our strength of being conscientious can morph into the weakness of being a slight—-or all out—-control freak! This humorous, yet spiritually practical book will help you learn how to control what you should, trust God with what you can’t, and more importantly, decide which one is which! Read more...
Are You Growing?
February 8, 2018
I've been thinking a lot about growth recently. Specifically I’ve been focusing on personal growth and growing in Christ.
In reviewing 2017, it felt as though I had learned nothing new. Or at least, the things that I had learned were not being put into action.
I remember when I was pregnant with my son I would go on www.babycenter.com every week to see what the baby should look like and what was happening to him in the womb. Read more...

[Jesus] needed to do through Samaria.

1 Peter 2:2
February 22, 2018
This epistle of Peter is addressed to the diaspora of Jews in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia.
He writes to remind them that God has chosen them and his spirit has made them holy. For whatever reason, they seemed to be doubtful of this fact.
Maybe the new believers doubted because they were far removed from their beloved Jerusalem – driven away because of religious persecution.
Peter wrote to remind them that they were children of God. Read more...
