The Power of With

My last post touched on beingwithJesus, but today I'm going to go into more depth.  When you are with someone, there is a sense of understanding, support, and genuine and encouraging conversations and interactions. Do any of you find it difficult to be with someone who you can't actually see or hear? I struggle with this... Continue Reading →

Fast Faith & Spiritual Spikes

I was on a retreat this past weekend and we learned something about faith that was always in the back of my mind, but was never really brought to the surface. It's so obvious, yet so many of us overlook it. Faith isn't something that you wake up with. Yes, one can surrender their life... Continue Reading →

Expectations of God?

Hi all- Last Sunday I was at church and I was experiencing some mild stomach discomfort at the beginning of the service (and just before arriving).
