Faith in Action

We serve a big God…

weeping may last for the night but joy comes in the morning psalm 30:5

We serve a big God. Some of you may be thinking, “Duh…that’s like lesson one in Sunday School when we’re 5 years old!” But for someone like me who came to know Christ in my mid-20′s and is the daughter of a Jewish lawyer born during the Great Depression, sometimes I have to go back & analyze the facts and ...

Have you ever seen a picture of random celebrities together and thought, “They have no business knowing each other except that their both famous!” I have. And then the next natural question becomes, “How did they even happen to get to meet each other?” There is a very simple answer: Access A singer likes a certain TV show, so his ... Read More »

I Give Up Lord

i-give-up

The other day, I was praying and confessing to God and said, “Lord, I want you to remove ____ from my life”…to which He quickly replied, “I want YOU to GIVE IT UP!” Our God is not intrusive. He is a gentleman. He is not invasive, yet meets us where we are. He calls us not to be passive Christians, ... Read More »

Radiant Glory

radiant-glory

So often we brush right past people that God put in our way for a reason. If God created everything, and everything He created reflects His glory in some way, then we should be able to find that radiance in every person we encounter!

The Long Road Home

We’ve started the long road home to Nashville… It’s hard to believe that just a week ago I received the call from my husband that his dad had passed away and hours later I piled our two kids into the mini van to make the 13 hour trek down to South Florida amidst squalls from Hurricane Isaac. It’s a blur. ... Read More »

I NEED you to do this, Lord

car-window-rain

It’s not often that I asked the Lord for insanely practical things. In fact, I hate to bother him with things that seem so trivial in light of all the world’s problems. But He does in fact want us to include him in all aspects of our lives and I was reminded of this in a very tangible way today ... Read More »

Don’t give up on God

I just finished co-hosting the family-friendly morning show with Doug while Jaci Velasquez was off promoting her new album. It was an amazing experience and in the excitement of the morning I realized my gas tank was almost on empty. So I left the station and promptly found a place to fill up. After pulling in, I watched a homeless ... Read More »

cone-family-new-year

I’m back on the Tommy Nelson Blog today with a post about Family New Year’s Resolutions! Does your family set New Year’s Resolutions? I realize the New Year is typically a time for people to reflect and re-evaluate, but how often do you include your kids when you set such goals?

Kids Prayer Poster

kids-prayer-poster

If you’re looking for a tangible way to help your family pray together on a consistent basis, consider making a Kids Prayer Poster. When I first became a Christian in my 20′s, I quickly realized I couldn’t possibly pray for everyone all the time. So while I knew there would always be spontaneous and continuous prayer in my life, I ... Read More »

Family Prayer Shield

cone-prayer-shield

I’ve been getting asked about our family Prayer Shield a lot lately, so I thought it only fitting to share about what it is, how it got started and how we plan to refine it for 2012. I first learned about having a prayer shield from one of my mentors and colleagues, Catherine Hickem.  Though I know we are to ... Read More »
