The Epiphany, and Why You Need to Observe It

The Epiphany, and Why You Need to Observe It

One of my earliest memories of observing The Epiphany as a child, was waking up very early on January 6th to a small gift on my window. Typically a pair of house shoes, special socks, or a new coat. The gifts were always very modest, and never wrapped. Though her budget was tight, and she was a single parent, my mom always made sure ‘a little something’ was waiting for us at that window. My sister and I did not…

Why The She Reads Truth Bible, Is The Perfect Study Bible

Why The She Reads Truth Bible, Is The Perfect Study Bible

[I was given this Bible to review for B&H Publishing by FrontGate Media. All opinions are my own, you can see my full disclosure here.] When a close friend of mine first became a believer and received her very first Bible she treated it with such reverence, that it gave the impression it would burst into flames if anyone even laid eyes on it. She carried it in a box,…

Chronic Beauty: A Courageous Fight to Live Fully

As a mother of 3 teen and 2 pre-teen girls I deal with more than my fair share of conversations about beauty both inward and outward. Like every good mom I assure them that beauty comes from the inside out, but I also remind them of their outward beauty. Let’s face it, we all need a reminder from time to time. God’s Word tell us we are made in His…

Awake My Soul by Chris Tomlin

I love that the theme of resurrecting dead bones has been so prevalent throughout this series. As we wrap up the series today, Awake My Soul by Chris Tomlin once again speaks of coming alive through the breath of God. I come alive when You speak to me The Lord speaks to me through His word, and through worship. I can breathe. Yeah, I’m not alone, I realize I breathe…

Build Your Kingdom Here by Rend Collective

Today’s song, Build Your Kingdom Here by Rend Collective, is one on my favorite worship songs EVER. If you come and visit, there’s a 99% chance you’ll walk in on me uncontrollably dancing, and singing it at the top of my lungs. I love the call for revival. Don’t you think that REVIVAL is what our country needs the most at this particular point in history? Because I could not…

Who Is This King by Pocket Full of Rocks

I’ve been blessed with great friendships in my life. These friendships have seen my family go through serious struggles, and they have prayed and cried with us at times, and us with them. These friends have encouraged our walk with Christ and continue to keep us accountable to doing all things in order to honor the King. As important and wonderful as these friendships have been, they pale in comparison…

Forgiven and Loved by Jimmy Needham

I first heard this song while trying to minister to someone I love very much. She was looking for answers to really hard questions about her past, and even tougher questions about her future. This song was playing in the car as we spoke. While at a red light she repeated the following lyrics: But my joy has been on holiday And my peace has almost passed away Tell me…

I Am Mountain by Gungor

Todays’ song is I Am Mountain by Gungor. I had second, third and even fourth thoughts about including this song. So far I’ve shared songs that have encouraged me, I’ve shared lyrics that remind me of Bible passages, and I’ve shared songs that helped strengthen my Christian walk. This is not one of those songs. Why then, would I include it in a series that is intended to bring encouragement? On…

All Around Me by Flyleaf

Todays song All Around Me by Flyleaf is not your typical worship song, I’m aware of that. However this is a song I love. I love the intimate relationship with the Lord that it implies. Please watch the video and listen to the lyrics, before reading on. (This post contains affiliate links, see my full disclosure here.) Flyleaf’s lead singer Lacy Sturm was a guest speaker at my church about a…
