Will You Pray This Prayer With Me?

Will You Pray This Prayer With Me?

Dear God, The sun came out for the first time in days, and to me, it looked as if You poured a layer of gold atop everything. I stood for a moment on the back deck, face tipped toward the sky. I closed my eyes and felt the gentle weight of heaven-shine. In a moment […]

Featured #TellHisStory Writer: Patricia Hunter (And a Giveaway!)

Cultivating an Eye for Life’s Mercies No doubt my neighbors think I’m quirky. With a basket – that holds two cameras, an extra lens or two, and a towel or blanket to sit on – in one hand and a bottle of water or Gatorade in the other, I wander the same five acres on […]

How to Find The Holy Ground

How to Find The Holy Ground

It was just after dawn on Sunday morning. I was washing raspberries at the kitchen sink, and thinking ahead to Monday. My friend Paula had spent the weekend with us, and when she came into the kitchen, she startled me with her gasp. “Jennifer!” she cried out. “Look. Look ...

Go Ahead. Live Your One Life.

Go Ahead. Live Your One Life.

Life will preach you a lesson, if you let it. And I don’t mean the kind of pulpit-pounding preachin’ that makes you see the cracks and the holes in who you are. But the kind of heart-pounding preachin’ that makes you see how the cracks are being filled. Present tense. This is what God is […]

In the Category of God Completely Showing Off

We woke up to lace in our trees, doilies on the grass, a crystal coverlet pulled up under the chin of our world. Every inch glistened and sang. So the girls ran for the boots and hats. And I ran for the camera. In the created world, there’s no such thing as “just.” No such thing […]

If You’re Wondering Who’s In Control Here…

If You're Wondering Who's In Control Here...

    Happy weekend friends. God’s Got This. God’s Got You. He made frost after all. If He cares about FROST — and about taking the time to make it so exquisitely beautiful — I really believe He’s got something beautiful in mind for us, too.
