PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• My Kitchen Aid mixer is my second favorite appliance in the kitchen, right after my coffee maker. I often use it to shred chicken… But occasionally, when I flip the switch, it goes from a nice, leisurely Sunday stroll to “Mission Control, we’re ready for lift off” faster than I can react. And that’s when I end up with chicken … Continue reading 5.24.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Be Still
PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• We just finished a Bible study at church based on Lysa TerKeurst’s book, “It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way.” In her video teaching, she uses James 1:2-3 which says, “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.” Our class agreed with her that … Continue reading 5.19.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: The Joy of Trials
PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” This verse, along with bold prayer, has a lot of power.

Thankfully, … Continue reading 5.9.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: An Expensive Price Tag
PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Good morning! It’s crazy-early-o’clock and I’m headed out the door at 6 for a prayer breakfast this morning. I never sleep well when I need to get up way earlier than normal, and last night was no exception. So with that said, my coffee maker doesn’t seem big enough today. But this is a special event held during the same … Continue reading 4.30.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: A Faith Journey
PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• For many of us, it’s hard not to constantly look in the rearview mirror of life. After all, we know where we’ve been, what we’ve done, and what we wish we could change. We look back and recite to ourselves all the would’ve’s, could’ve’s, and should’ve’s. And we get nowhere with it. We know the promise of 2 Corinthians 5:17, … Continue reading 4.27.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Beauty From Ashes
PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Good Friday is here and with it, the question, “Why on earth do we call it good?” Certainly, when we take into account the historical details of the day, there is little good about it. Jesus was wrongly accused, mocked, beaten, and crucified. His death was an agony we can hardly stand to consider so we typically sanitize it and … Continue reading 4.19.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: What is Good About Good Friday?
