No More Bad Days

What makes a good day “good” and a bad day “bad”? For me, a "good" day used to be when I wake up feeling great, I get all my tasks done, the kids do nothing to test my patience, dinner is made and enjoyed, and then I go to bed feeling as great as when... Continue Reading →

How to Have Peace of Mind and Heart

I’ve never considered myself to be a worrier. After all, worry, to me at least, meant to be concerned about the future and I’ve always found that to be a pointless exercise. But, worry, by definition, is the same as anxiety, and essentially boils down to a lack of peace. And I've certainly been there.... Continue Reading →

What Satisfies

I had some downtime one day, so I decided to just relax for a bit. I retreated to my favourite chair in the living room, sank down into its cushiness, put my feet up and took out my phone. I had a desire to consume, i.e. take in, something. I went to Netflix. Nothing looked... Continue Reading →

Be Diligent in Prayer

My mind has been on the topic of prayer a lot this year. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 I do pray continually..

He is Faithful

Eight years ago, my husband and I sold our home and moved with our then three-year-old son into an apartment. We had both recently come to faith in Christ and felt led to make some drastic changes in our lives. God told us we were not on the right path. We had a lot to... Continue Reading →

He is So Good

I love listening to worship music! It is such a big part of my faith walk. I always find so much encouragement from a song of worship and praise. I often wake with one playing in my head which sets the tone for my day. And then someone usually comes to mind who needs to... Continue Reading →

Remain in Me

I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5 ESV This month, I'm reflecting on abiding in Christ. I'm doing this creatively by using the February faith art box from  Creative Retreat Kits (referral... Continue Reading →
