Unforgivable, by Giosue Petrone

The Story A lovely African woman is cooking outside her home. It's mid afternoon and she calls after some children running by.

Tapestry of Calling

When you are wondering about if you are doing what you should be in life, we can look to scripture to keep us pointed in the direction of truth.

What is a Woman?

This spoken word performance by Jackie Hill Perry is stunning! You should take the time today to listen to what she has to say about the identity of women. What is a Woman?

I'm so excited to have this guest post from Kristen Carden on Worship. Our idea of worship can so often be skewed.

I guess this is what happens when you go on vacation. Even with the best of intentions you end up two days late on your posts!! So here it is. Chapter 8, two days late. As has been with Hosea the text is talking about judgement and retribution. But, as I have so far, I'm... Continue Reading →

A Peace of Spring

The sounds of the spring evenings are a musical minagere of spring peepers, whiporwhil, and crickets. The air is slightly chilled. No Bugs! And the heavy scent of apple blossoms is all encompassing.
