Kiwi Crate Month 1 Review

This post contains affiliate links I signed up for KiwiCo's Kiwi Crate when I was looking for hands on projects for my lego loving kindergartener.

What We’re Reading in Kindergarten

Did you know chapter books with little to no illustrations can be enjoyed by even our youngest listeners? It's true! With my first kindergartener, I was a tad intimidated to dive into a book bigger than the slew of picture stories we had amassing on our bookshelf. Inevitably I gave it a go anyhow and… Continue reading What We’re Reading in Kindergarten

Warren Wiersbe notes in his Bible Exposition Commentary, "To have the mind enlightened and the heart stirred but not act in obedience to the message is not… Continue reading Why We Cannot Stand Still in Our Faith

How I Step Out of My Comfort Zone and You Can Too

When it comes to being open about my faith like this it can be so very daunting. At the same time, I don’t want to keep the goodness of God to myself, hoarding what I know so well about His faithfulness.

When We Hold Out On Others

Have you ever felt suffocated, completely and utterly overwhelmed, heart-stopping motionless when it comes to being around people? Small groups, larger groups, even one on one? Interacting with others can often put me in a state of distress. Truthfully, it is more so what they might be thinking than their actual physical presence. I rather swiftly… Continue reading When We Hold Out On Others

Against the Grain of Impatience: Ephesians 4:29-32

In my previous post, I began to touch on my struggle with impatience. It is definitely not in the least bit delightful. Now, I would like to dive in a little further. A friend of mine lent me The Bible Exposition Commentary by Warren W. Wiersbe to go along with a more in-depth study of scripture. It… Continue reading Against the Grain of Impatience: Ephesians 4:29-32
