The Hope In Joseph’s Story

The Hope In Joseph’s Story: “Things may look bleak in human terms, but can end up being totally different when our God comes into the picture.” This time of year, we read a lot of devotions about Mary and the beautiful humility she exhibited in response to the Lord. I won’t deny that I still…

On Leaving Things Unfinished…

One of the best lessons my business coach Jill Coleman taught me was to look for opportunities to learn / share insights as you come across them in your day-to-day life.

Five Tips For Managing Holiday Stress {FTT23}

Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s are upon us! Is it just me, or does anyone else have a love/hate relationship with this time of year?

Kaci’s Friday Find — Your Future Self Will Thank You

Where Your Purpose Is Found

I was listening to a sermon the other day when the pastor mentioned the story of Jesus in the boat with Peter (found in Luke 5:1-11). To get you up to speed, the gist is that Peter (a fisherman by trade) had fished all night and not caught anything. When Jesus asked him to let…
