Faith in Action

“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 »

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 ...

Access

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! This is one of the most difficult concepts for me personally as I truly struggle with ... Read More »

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 »
