Aslan is on the move

I just love this quote from C.S. Lewis’s “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe”. It’s probably one of my most favorite literature quotes of all time. There is something so powerful and exciting and hard to really wrap my arms around entirely within the context and the feel of a very short sentence that,…

Lent, Fasting and Me

Nearly two months in to 2014 and this is my first post. I am very pleased to tell you that I have been busy reading my chronological Bible as I indicated my intention to do in my last post of 2013. I have read through Genesis, Job and Exodus along with John 1 (alongside Genesis…

My Focus for 2014

I began 2013 committing to focus on one word for the year: Believe. This turned into Believing God and a secondary focus on God’s Promises. I set out to scour the Bible to learn about God’s promises and how I could rightly apply those promises to my life. This was, in a way, my mission…

Reclaiming Time With Smart Phone Apps

A few months ago I wrote about how I was struggling to stay connected to the Lord during this busy season with a new baby in the home. Before Lucas was born I found a good rhythm for my study time during LucyKate’s nap time. It worked great for that season but I knew that…

Without Him How Lost I Would Be

Last night my baby boy had me up all night and I just couldn’t get him to calm down. He has not been sleeping well at all lately and, exhausted, I was at the end of my rope. I was tense and frustrated and about to lose my mind. Suddenly I found myself singing songs…

Make Yourself At Home

An influential voice in my life recently told me that it takes at least a year, up to two years, to truly feel settled into a new home. We moved in December 2011, December 2012 and June 2013 so I suppose that means I have been in an ongoing state of being unsettled. I only…

Staying Connected In the Midst of Change

Eight weeks ago our little family of three became four as we welcomed precious Lucas James Walters into the world! He is a doll and we are soaking up every sweet minute of his new little life. His presence, however, has brought my blogging and my study of God’s promises to a screeching halt. Since…

I’m Believing God

Well, I just finished working through the Bible study “Believing God” written by Beth Moore. I began this study earlier this year as I was praying about how to know and understand God’s promises.ย  I am so thankful that I had the chance to work through the workbook and watch a few of the videos…

Confession: It’s Good For the Soul

I’ve dreaded writing this post but the time has come to break the news even if its not good news.ย  I did not accomplish my weight loss goals as I had hoped to earlier this year. In fact, I did not even come close.ย  I guess the good news is that I did not gain…

Can the Heart be Disciplined?

Emily Dickinson once wrote, When the Best is gone, I know that other things are not of consequence, The Heart wants what it wants, or else it does not care… I’ve toiled and fretted much this year over my lack of discipline; yet, after six months of striving, discipline remains just beyond my reach. This…
