“Give us this day our daily bread . . . “

This simple prayer has become one I rely on when I don’t know what else to pray.

I used to think this was a greedy prayer, but the truth is, if we don’t go to God our Father to get our cup filled, we’ll go elsewhere (more…)

I prayed for this child (1)

HER BIRTH STORY

The day after Mother’s Day — Monday, May 9th — I started having contractions during the day. They picked up towards early evening, so we started timing them and decided to go on a walk to make sure it wasn’t “false labor”. Sure enough, they grew steadily closer together!

We walked to my brother and his wife’s house {we are blessed to live within walking distance}, (more…)

We interrupt this series to talk about… our baby girl, who could be arriving any day now! I wanted to document this moment in time, as I love to do, through writing.

This is such a special pause in between two seasons — going from “baby free” to having a mini me! I imagine this must be a big adjustment and one we’ve been preparing our entire lives for… yet NOTHING can adequately prepare us for the life change we’re about to experience. Nothing & no one. (more…)

I hope you’re enjoying this series so far. It may seem boring — or like basic Christianity — but that’s why I like it 🙂 Simple faith is God’s favorite kind.


One key to walking in freedom is praying the Lord’s Prayer. Why? Because it helps us focus on the Creator as our solution (instead of our problem) and invites Him into each situation. That’s why we’re studying this powerful passage in the Bible.

Jesus encouraged us to pray “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”. (more…)

Holy. Hallowed. Sacred.

These words conjure up images of neatly-praying hands, bowed heads, hushed words, & cathedrals. Yet most of us wonder, What does ‘holy’ really mean?

Beach dad

A Dad. Do you believe you have one? Or do you live life as an orphan — as in “if it’s to be it’s up to me”?

Sure, there’s the man who gave you life on earth (which is wonderful), but do you & I also realize we have a Dad who walks with us every day? Who is perfect, knows & sees ALL, & is accessible to us 24/7?

How would our lives be different if we lived in this reality, that we have a Heavenly Father seeking our best continuously (more…)

Over the next month or two, we’re going to study the Lord’s Prayer. I want to take it line-by-line and dissect its meaning for us today. I believe the Lord is saying,

This is the key to your freedom! Living in light of this daily prayer is what will unlock your life from bondage. 

Let’s go on this journey together! I hope you’ll join me as we learn each verse of this famous passage… (more…)
