Would You Rather: The Philemon Edition

One of my boys is obsessed with “Would You Rather…” questions. I have to admit – once I tried a few, I was kinda hooked, too. (Actually, I’m really hooked. I told my husband that we should have a Would You Rather date where we go out for dinner and discuss Would You Rather questions […]

That Time the Bible Made Me Say “Wait… What?!”

Have you ever been watching a movie or listening to someone speak and think to yourself, “I totally know what’s going to happen next…” only to be completely wrong when you watch it all play out? It probably doesn’t happen all that often in day-to-day life? Most of our world (outside of extreme circumstances like… […]

If You REALLY Want to See Change, Go Beyond Self-Talk

What do you know about self-talk? I’m somewhat new to the topic but – the more I learn about it – the more I see the benefits. Self-talk is exactly what it sounds like: talking to yourself. It’s your internal (or external for some of us who aren’t afraid to look a little crazy) monologue. […]

What Does the Bible Say About How to Treat Women?

I Should Do WHAT With My Weaknesses?!

You know Paul from the Bible? If you do know who that is then, chances are, you know at least two things about him. 1) He used to be known as “Saul” in his former career as a Christian-killer, and 2) he boasted about his weaknesses. (For those of you who don’t know Paul, I […]

Breaking News: God Answers Prayers HIS Way

Confession time: Most of the time, when I pray, I have a specific solution in mind that I’d like God to use as the answer to my prayer. I try to tell myself that it’s plain ol’ fashioned good etiquette to offer a solution rather than to just whine about something. (Yeah – that’s it… […]
