Faith and Feeling

I’ve been reading through the E100 with my church and one of the themes I’m enjoying is the theme of faith producing radical obedience and how it so pleases God. I noticed it the other week when Abraham is willing to sacrifice his son, Isaac, because He believes that God is who he says he… Continue reading Faith and Feeling

Nook Pinboard

So many of you have kindly passed along your ideas for my little nook. I’m collection ideas on a pinboard at Pinterest. Here it is if you’re interested. I’m trying to decide on color for the desk…It may just be white. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Fantasy, Meet Reality

Joseph isn’t the only dreamer. But somehow, when I dream, it is oh so different. More like a fantasy… It began when the nurse placed my oldest twin in my arms soon after his birth. In the fantasy I had created in my head (partly based on a circa 1988 made for t.v. movie, and… Continue reading Fantasy, Meet Reality

Help me make a little place to work

Inspired by my friend Beth, the Sassy Domestic (extraordinaire), I’d like to make this little slice of my bedroom a space for me to study, plan, and write. Try to disregard the seasick green walls… I’ll deal with those this summer. I’d love for my beauty-minded gals to send ideas, links, photos for how to… Continue reading Help me make a little place to work

It’s Not in a Dream Come True

The Lord was with Joseph, and he became a successful man. Gen. 39:2 The Lord was with Joseph and showed him steadfast love. Gen. 39:21 The Lord was with him, and whatever he did, the Lord made it succeed. Gen. 39:23 Joseph’s success in the midst of heart-break was not in the change of circumstances,… Continue reading It’s Not in a Dream Come True

Broken Dreams

In the very chapter God gives him dreams, he’s sold into slavery. Joseph, the perhaps obnoxious 17 year old favorite son, has two dreams where he is represented in authority and his brothers are bowing to his authority.He makes the mistake of sharing the dreams with his brothers, and finds himself in the bottom of… Continue reading Broken Dreams

altar, tabernacle, temple, me

Our church is using the E100 Bible reading program, and I’m really enjoying it! Yesterday we read God’s calling of Abram. There are so many significant moments in this relatively short passage of scripture, but the “take this with you today” point that stood out to me was when Abram built an altar after God… Continue reading altar, tabernacle, temple, me

Mila’s Daydreams: Seriously creative, beautiful photography

My sister turned me on to Mila and her mom’s creative genius. I wonder if there’s a way to do this with teenage boys. Never mind. I never, ever, ever want to think about or know what they might be dreaming 😉 .

Baby Babel

The E100 passage for today was Genesis 11:1-9. I’m sure you know the story, but I’ll recap just in case. The people on earth, who to this point all spoke one language and lived in one place, decided to build a tower to heaven for their own glory. God responded by confusing their language and… Continue reading Baby Babel
