Identity – In the Garden

The last 2 weeks at church have focused on our identities as men and women. Q touched the tip of the iceberg, but if you can get this, I believe you’ll have a great foundation for digging deeper into who God has made you to be.

Hope City Church is changing the world, one heart at a time. For sure listen to videos 2 & 3. You won’t regret it!

Bearded Man

Tonight I’m wrecked by a bearded man that I don’t know.

There is this old-ish guy that comes to the park across from our house every once in a while and sings his heart out in the shelter. I bet the acoustics are really good in there. He has a long white beard, and he wore a cut-off shirt.

Today was the third time I’d seen/heard him, and I thought it was the radio at first because the sound was so crisp, but it wasn’t! It was this guy!

I admire this stranger. He didn’t care that people Continue reading “Bearded Man”

Happy Birthday Big Sis!

Guys. Today is my big sister’s birthday!!!!!

Happy Birthday, sis. I am so proud to be your younger sister, and am blessed by you so often!

I’m not great with snapchat, and I just recently learned about these things called “filters.” They can change your voice and make you look weird, or they can make you look better depending on the filter you choose. For this special occasion, I chose the alien filter. It just felt right. I sent the first video and couldn’t stop laughing, so I just kept going. I’m pretty sure I sent her at least 15 videos! Anyway, I decided I would share some of the best ones, so I can remember them forever (and delete them off of my phone, so they aren’t taking up valuable space!).

Jesus, My Champion

I’ve been listening to this song like crazy for a couple weeks now, and it has yet to get old (don’t ask my husband, though, because he disagrees).

 

The entire song is so good, but this is my favorite line:

Let faith arise
For my champion’s not dead, He is alive!
Oh, and He already knows my every need
Surely He will come and rescue me

When I hear that verse, I think of times when trial by combat was a popular method of determining a person’s guilt or innocence. If the accused couldn’t Continue reading “Jesus, My Champion”

Sharing My Story

Yesterday I had the opportunity to share part of my testimony for a women’s event for the second time. One of my best friends recorded the whole thing, so I would be able to share it with some people who wanted to see it, and I thought the simplest way would be to add it to my blog, so here it is. I hope it encourages you.
