My life is in upheaval. Not for any weird reasons. Just because, as you know, I'm moving. I literally spent 15 minutes looking for my computer earlier. It was under a bag and some clothes. And there are boxes everywhere. It's chaos. But really my life has been in metaphorical upheaval for this whole season,… Continue reading It’s intentional
I have been following the first devotional "path" in the (In)courage Bible. (I'll likely review this soon but know so far I like it a lot.). Today's story was from Genesis and was one that is of course familiar to me. My name came from it. The story of Rachel and Leah. (Genesis 29-30) I… Continue reading Praise in the broken places

And we were never made to be. I know. Catch your breath for a minute. I am reading, among other… Continue reading You’re not enough

Today she tied into the Israelites leaving Egypt and how God could have taken them straight there to Canaan but then the… Continue reading In the middle
