You’re Invited to My “Simple Things” Facebook Party

As we look ahead to the closing of one year and the beginning of another, let’s pause for an evening of encouragement and fun. Let’s share how we can hear God’s voice in the simple things—both during this busy holiday season and throughout 2014. Grab your copy of The One Year® Book of Amish Peace and a warm winter drink and join me for an author chat party on Wednesday, December 4th at 8:00 PM EST (that’s 7:00 Central, 6:00 {Read More}

Your Family’s Script

Your Family’s Script Sometimes our families resemble a movie. There is a little romance. A little drama. A little humor. And a little (or a lot) of conflict. Of course every movie needs conflict. That’s what keeps us interested. We enjoy seeing the characters of the movie get into and out of trouble. Of course, in reality not every situation had a happy ending in thirty minutes or less. Real life is different, but it’s also better. Dialogue Every day {Read More}

What Book are You Thankful For?

What Book are You Thankful For? Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! I hope you enjoy spending the day with loved ones. I recently asked my Facebook friends what books they’re thankful for, and I thought today was the perfect day to share their answers. As for me the book I’m thankful for is Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby. You can read more about why here. What book is @TriciaGoyer most thankful for?

Life isn’t about Writing

Life isn’t about Writing I’m a pretty easygoing person. But there are a few things that bug me: Being late. I hate it. Appointments. Ugh. Paperwork. Just shoot me. My weaknesses. I understand when others mess up. I just don’t want to! People who complain. Which makes me laugh, reading the above list! A day a few years ago included all of the above. It started when I woke up in a funk and kicked off when my dog chewed {Read More}

God Sees You

God Sees You Years ago I attended a national mothering conference. A lot of women had gathered together to have fun, bond with friends, and learn how to be better mothers. Unfortunately I didn’t attend with other women, and the truth was I’ve never felt so alone in my life. I had a hotel room to myself. I sat alone during the speakers’ presentations among 5,000 women. I remember looking around and thinking, Nobody knows me. Nobody understands. They didn’t {Read More}

My Writing Desk | Christa Parrish (Plus a Giveaway)

Almost everything—from the desk, to the chair, to the lamp and books—was thrifted or free. I painted the antique chair my favorite aqua color and then gave the old, dark wood table a makeover as well. The stack of books came with the husband, but he found them at a garage sale. The lamp is from a thrift store, as is the little white bowl holding a real bird’s nest my son found outside in our yard. The small quilted {Read More}

How to be Truly Thankful

Teach Your Kids Thankfulness (Not Entitlement) It’s a week before Thanksgiving, but I already have my turkey thawing in the refrigerator. My menu is simple: turkey, ham, potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, pie. The recipes are ones I’ve been making for twenty years—nothing fancy here. Our table will be set like any Sunday dinner. I’ll even admit I don’t have one turkey decoration in our whole house. Instead of planning for a party my focus this month has been on {Read More}

How to Mind Your Thoughts

Learn How to Mind Your Thoughts The thousands of me-to-me conversations going on in my head throughout the day are labeled by psychologists as “self-talk.” Relentless, repetitive self-talk transforms our self-image—for good or for bad. It modifies both our inner and outer worlds. We will do what our thoughts tell us to do. God knows that. That’s why God desires His truth to cover all our thoughts. I don’t know about you, but there’s often a distinction between the thoughts {Read More}

Is the Grass Truly Greener on the Other Side of the Fence? | Guest Post by MaryLu Tyndall

Today on Living Inspired, I’m going to be chatting with two guests, one of them being MaryLu Tyndall! Without further ado, here’s MaryLu with a special guest post! Forsaken Dreams is the first book in a trilogy that is based on a little-known historical event. It’s the sort of event that perhaps the United States would like to keep buried in history because it doesn’t reflect well on our great nation. But it does give us insight into human nature, in {Read More}
