A Prayer For Your Family

But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15 ESV Father God, I’m here, on behalf of my family. Be near God. Show us how to love each other well. May we encourage one another Lord. Dwell amongst us. Be with us in the morning, in the evening. Grant us love,…

Takeaway Tuesdays: O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

I’m shaking things up a little bit here in the month of December. I usually create a Scripture-based print. This month, in light of Christmas, I am sharing one of my favorite Christmas songs. I love the lyrics of “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel”. We often do not get to the third verse of the…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Psalm 3:3

I love the Fall. It is my favorite time of year. I love the changing of the colors, the beginning of the school year (as a school nurse, I get to experience this over and over again with every year that passes). Basically all the “fally” things make my heart swoon. I’ve created this month’s…

Takeaway Tuesdays: 1 John 3:16

I love the summer months when I get to go on adventures to different places. This summer I visited family in both Maryland and England. And though traveling is one of my favorite activities, I can’t help feel “home” when I attend my church of 11 years, Outward Church. This morning’s message was on 1…

20 Things I Learned in My Twenties

My twenties are ending in a few days. This is exciting and yet terrifying at the same time. I’ve been reflecting upon this last decade all month, and I have a list I’d love to share with anyone younger than myself. Just a few pieces of wisdom I’ve gleaned along the way. I by no…

Goodbye 32, Hello 33

I’m writing this post on Christmas Eve, but when it goes live, I’ll be 33. 32 is my favorite number, so I knew heading into this past birthday year, I’d mature a little more emotionally and intellectually, deepen in my faith, and explore the world a little further. I’ve loved most moments of 32, and…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Behold Your King

I love the Lauren Daigle song “Behold”. Any Christmas song that speaks about waiting for something long desired speaks volumes to my heart. I normally make Takeaway Tuesday prints with Scripture, but I’ve made an exception for the month of December. I hope this image reminds you that Emmanuel, meaning God with us, loves you…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Psalm 107:1

I always think of November as a month to reflect on all that I am thankful for. Let’s give thanks especially to God, for His steadfast love that endures forever. Oh how I need this encouragement. Click here for this free print.

Takeaway Tuesdays: Hebrews 13:2

I love Fall, ya’ll. Sweaters, boots, pumpkin baked goodies. Tea and coffee galore. Dinner with friends. As I’m thinking about Fall, and how it begins on Friday, I am prone to think about gatherings. Fall is the quintessential time of year to gather in our homes, for it naturally hosts holidays such as Thanksgiving. This…

Takeaway Tuesday: Exodus 33:18

I just listened to Annie Down’s podcast That Sounds Fun. The specific episode I finished had guest John Mark Comer, who is a Portland pastor/author. I so enjoyed this episode and loved how he shared about millennials (given I am one of those peeps), the post-modern church, Portland, and the like. One of my big…
