Get Reacquainted with the Holy Ghost TODAY

What are your impressions when you think of the Holy Ghost, or the Holy Spirit? For most people, He is relegated to just being a "force" or an energy, but often forgotten as a person. He is the third person of the Godhead - God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit. ...more

Do You Expect Jesus to be Your Friend with Benefits?

I honestly don't really know how to open this post. I want to introduce this topic with a normal introduction, but I think I'll just skip the pleasantries and dive right in. I've been asking some hard questions about what I believe. Questions like: "WHY do I believe what I believe?" "Do I really know Jesus Christ or am I just going through the motions?" "Am I truly trusting Christ for my salvation or am I actually putting my faith in something else?" "Is Jesus enough for me?" ...more
I agree with you Sam. I just posted on my blog about really having a relationship with God who ...more

An Exclusive Excerpt of Finding Mr. Righteous

A few months ago my first book, Finding Mr. Righteous, was released on Kindle and hardcover.  A Christian-in-name-only, I dated freely in spite of my insecurities. An Atheist. A Catholic. A Quaker. A Preacher. A Jew. Some gave me the answers I yearned for, while others left me with more questions....more

I'm Not a Mommy Blogger

If you surveyed the entire community of people who have blogs similar to mine, I would be willing to bet that more than 75% of them are women with children, hereafter known as "Mommy Bloggers". Many of them are stay at home moms and a larger-than-the-national-average percentage home school. These women are a force to be reckoned with and that makes me a little nervous to post anything about them, but I have a few things I want to say....more

5 Characteristics of a Farmer

"The farmer plants seed by taking God’s word to others." -Mark 4:14 We are doing a series on 'The Parable of The Sower' in Church for the next couple of weeks. My pastor is teaching on each of the soils and how to grow and develop as a Christian. Last night at Missional Community my pastor encouraged us to seek out what God was teaching us specifically about this parable....more

5 Important Questions the Noah Movie Raised

Last weekend, I managed to con/convince a few friends into going to see the Noah movie with me. I had heard reviews on every end of the spectrum about it, and I wanted to form my own opinion. I sat down, trying to keep my expectations low and to just enjoy the movie as entertainment, and I got something else entirely.The movie raised deep, theological, important questions inside of me so often that I wanted to be able to pause it and journal for a few minutes before moving on. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a notebook handy and the movie kept plugging along so quickly that I probably couldn’t have gotten a word written down without missing something else, anyway....more

Resurrection Sunday - apart but of one heart.

Happy Easter!  Thank you Jesus!  The miracle of your love and grace is something I pray I never forget.  Today was a blessing.  I got to hear Your word and sing Your praises in the morning.  I got to take a neighbor with a slightly broken heart out for lunch.  My children got to spend the day with their dad.  I pray they were able to share a bit of the Truth with him in their own sweet ways.  I got to watch a movie at home in peace.  I got a sweet picture sent to me from the man I have loved for nearly 10 years.  It was a quiet day but ...more

What Does Resurrection Look Like?

Sunday's on the Way by Carmen

Ok, this post is going to show my age some, gasp, I’m no spring chicken! I began listening to Christian music back in the early ‘80s, yes the 1980’s!...more
