Peace in Every Way | 2 Thessalonians 3:16

2 Thessalonians 3:16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you. Prayer: Dear Jesus, I thank you that you’re the Lord of peace. When I turn to you, it doesn’t mean all my problems will be solved immediately. When I turn to you, it does not mean I’ll have all the answers to my questions or that my worries will vanish like the morning {Read More}

How To Get Things Done Even When You Can’t Clone Yourself

I looked at my friend’s to-do list that she posted on Instagram. “No wonder I’m cracking!” she posted. “I need a clone.” I cringed as I looked at her list. It was long. I also cringed because I remember the feelings that huge of a to-do list brought on. The feeling that I was always behind. The feeling that I was a failure because I couldn’t keep up. And it seemed the more I focused on all the ways I {Read More}

The Great Cover Up | Chrystal Evans Hurst

Selfies. Most of us have taken them. Some of us have taken them seriously. If you’ve ever posted a selfie on social media, you can appreciate the work it takes to get a good one. The lighting has to be right. The angle has to be right. And lord knows, the filter has to be right, too. Selfies are serious business. I’m embarrassed to say there have been times it took thirty snaps to get the one photo I felt was {Read More}

The Rumor is True (and a special FREE book for you!)

Have you heard the rumor? I have to admit it’s true. I am not a superwoman. Yes, that’s right. I’ll admit it here. The truth is that none of us are superwomen (or supermen) but we try so hard to hide it, don’t we? I know I do. It’s super easy to write a blog about how to encourage our kids. It’s super hard to admit that just this morning I had to seek forgiveness from my daughter for the {Read More}

Sight and Sound Theatre: Perfect Family Entertainment

“Mom, can we go back to that show again?” I can’t count the number of times my younger kids have asked me when we could return to Sight and Sound Theatre in Branson, Missouri. We attended the Jonah show a few years ago before we adopted our four older daughters. Anytime the topic of Jonah came up our younger kids (now ages 6-10) would tell about the “real” whale they saw. I can still picture their faces with they saw {Read More}

How do you build deep friendships? T-I-M-E

Last week I was blessed to hang out with some of my favorite friends for four days. As I’ve mentioned before, every year I get together with a group of Christian novelists to plot, play and pray together. Each person gets one hour and fifteen minutes of plotting time. They share their book ideas, and everyone else helps them come up with ideas for their plots, characters, conflicts. (Below I have links to some of the books we’ve plotted if {Read More}

Thirsts for You | Psalm 63:1

Saturday Scripture Psalm 63:1 O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;     my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you,     as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, My soul thirsts for you. My flesh faints for you. Only you can satisfy. Yet how quick I am to look to my family, friends, possessions, or status to fill the longings of my heart. Lord, forgive me for those moments when {Read More}
