The Smile Button

Psalm 118:14-16 The LORD is my strength and my defense; He has become my salvation. Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: “The LORD’s right hand has done mighty things!” The LORD’s right hand is lifted high; the LORD’s right hand has done mighty things! As I read these passages […]

In God We Trust

For those of us who are military families, uncertainty is just part of life.  We often live a life of “hurry up and wait.”  Uncle Sam could knock on our doors at any time. Military families live with a lot of unknowns, yet it’s important for us not to place our faith in the government, […]

TTFN – Tah Tah For Now

“My soul, praise Yahweh, and all that is within me, praise His holy name.” Psalms 103:1 HCSB It’s been a full year since I was asked to blog for the KBC. In that time, God has moved and my life has been transformed. I have enjoyed every moment of this journey and can’t wait to […]

Faithful Lord

“The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and rich in faithful love.” Psalms 103:8 HCSB If you would have told me a year ago that I would currently be at my dream job and expecting my first little one, I would have laughed at you. I knew God had big plans for me, but […]

…In Honor of His and Many Others’ Efforts

 Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward. Free at last, Free at last, Thank […]

When Storms Come

  On Thursday afternoon, I made the dreaded trip to the grocery store.  We are under a Winter Storm Warning, so we must be prepared. You know the drill: milk and bread in every shopping cart.  When the forecast calls for extreme weather events, it’s only natural to prepare.  Even those of us who live […]

Fight the Good Fight

My sons are gamers. They have played video games since they were old enough to hold remotes in their little toddler hands. I have watched them over the last 20+ years beat game after game. If you were to ask one of them how they do that, they would tell you they begin with learning […]

Make This Year Different

It’s that time of year: We are bound and determined to make a change in our lives this year. We’ve chosen our New Year’s Resolutions or chosen our One Word.  We’ve joined the local gym, stocked our fridges with fruits and veggies, and filled our water jugs.  We sync our Fitbits as we sit down […]

Ask and Receive

“Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives to all generously and without criticizing, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in FAITH without doubting. For the doubter is like the surging sea, driven and tossed by the wind.” James 1:5-6, HCSB [emphasis added] I have […]
