“Can I Call You Jessi?”

sunset

As I stood and looked at myself in the mirror this evening, sniffly, puffy and red-eyed from allergy-driven sneezing all day, I asked Jesus an equally strange, yet important question… “Can I call you Jessi?” He said sure. Before brushing my teeth, I’d apologized for something trivial to him in my head. To which He quickly responded, “That’s OK.” Since ... Read More »

Are You Tithing or Tipping?

are you tithing or tipping

Recently I was sitting in a local Nashville institution catching up on some work while my kids were at a birthday party. As I typed, a blank stage stared back at me. Obviously, in addition to an eatery, it was used as a live music venue during the evening hours. Though there were no performers at the time, the stools, microphones and ... Read More »

Romans Road – Step One

romans-road-devotion-step-one

I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. – Romans 1:16 Before leaving for our honeymoon after our wedding, we met up with some family at Starbucks (shocker, I know). It wasn’t until that point that we’d taken time ... Read More »

Kids’ Mentors: Who will they turn to?

kids mentors teen parenting advice

At my mentor’s 60th birthday party a couple years ago, her husband asked the small group of her close friends gathered around her in their living room to go around the circle and say something memorable about her. Most were her peers, so my husband and I gleaned a lot of wisdom from those precious moments they shared, but one ... Read More »

Our Kids Bedtime Routine & Prayer

Kids Bedtime Routine

Motherhood crept up on me. I know I know, I had nine months to prepare for my first child. But as an only child myself, I was not exposed to a lot of babies, much less taught how to care for little ones. I followed my doctors advice and actually didn’t read any parenting books while I was pregnant. However, ... Read More »

If your friends… {Peer Pressure}

Peer Pressure don't fit in

My monthly post for FaithGateway.com is LIVE today focusing on peer pressure, and I wanted to share a piece of it with you here: I’m sure all of us can remember a myriad of catchphrases we overheard our parents chastise us with over and over again as we were growing up, but perhaps none more than “If your friends jumped ...

Different Kind of Easter

20140421-065232.jpg

No new outfits. No candy bought. No fluffy bunnies in baskets. The Cones experienced a different kind of Easter this year. We didn’t set out trying to make a statement. After all, we just returned from the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, so it’s not like we’re depriving our kids by any means. But perhaps that’s exactly why my husband ... Read More »

FamilyLife resurrection eggs

On today’s episode of The Daily Dash, I featured the 20th Anniversary Edition of FamilyLife’s Resurrection Eggs: While I’ve known about Resurrection Eggs for years, I’ve never incorporated them into our family’s Easter routine until now!
