Amen Prayers

This is my last post in the Word Nerd series using Illustrated Faith's devotional kit. For my entry, I used a few items from the kit, a prayer journaling card from my Etsy shop, and the girl is from an Illustrated Faith printable called Heart Work that I've used in previous Word Nerd entries.

His Promises Help Us to Endure

I'm now in the last session of Illustrated Faith’s Word Nerd devotional kit. This session focuses on the word Endure which means to undergo, especially without giving in. ... you will be hated... many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another... false prophets will arise and lead many astray.

No one can watch someone they love endure hardship without feeling some of their pain. Though I knew the necessity of His death and God's great plan of redemption,... Continue Reading →

Bloom in Grace

Did you pick a focus word for 2020? Last year my one little word was actually a phrase - Rise and Shine! It was my first year selecting a "One Little Word" and I really liked having a focus to frame all I did that year. So, of course, I planned to choose another word... Continue Reading →

Less Hustle, More Jesus

What sermon is my life preaching? That's something I have to pause often to consider and re-evaluate through different seasons. It's especially important because I have little disciples in my care who are watching and learning. This past November, I finished working through a creative devotional journal by Shanna Noel called 100 Days of Less... Continue Reading →
