Jesus Wins

January of 2022!!  I, unfortunately, find myself already metaphorically stuffed from the leftovers of 2020 and 2021…  unable yet to celebrate a new year.  Bringing in the new year didn’t feel exciting, hopeful, optimistic, or new, for that matter.  It felt more like a big cold heaping plate of tired leftovers from the previous two… Continue reading Jesus Wins

GET YOUR IRON UP

Happy New Year!! Good or bad, I am a classic people pleaser. I want everything to run smoothly and happily. I want everyone to love Jesus, each other, and be sweet.

Persecution

We've never been where we are today.  It's worrisome, frustrating, and tedious.  When I watch a movie, the greatest part is when the good guys win.  I hold onto the fact that I know the good guys do win in the end of this earthly story...that sustains me and holds me securely. Honestly, I always… Continue reading Persecution
