The Good Way

Glorious Monday morning to you all! Well, we made it through the first week of the new year. I wonder how many of you have kept your resolutions. It’s really none of my business what you resolve to do, but I’ll share mine with you. This year I resolve to go even lower. God won’t…

Day 19 – Agitation

As you walk this road, have you noticed any changes? Perhaps the path is no longer nicely paved. Maybe it’s pocked with potholes and cracks. Have you experienced any storms, trials, or tragedies in this season of surrender?  Those life experiences have a tendency to rock your world. Expect this type of agitation as you’re…

Hiding Place

One of my all-time favorite games to play as a kid growing up in Louisiana was Hide and Seek. As the youngest, smallest kiddo in my neighborhood, I couldn’t play many games as well as the other kids. They were more athletic, funnier, and more creative than I. They made growing up on that street…

Can You Hear Me Now?

Picture this. You are thirteen years old, and your mind is focused on all things related to eighth grade. In the background, your mom is calling your name.

I remember reading a book with my students called Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe. The main character in this novel was Okonkwo, and he was known…

Sunrise Sermon: He Has Risen

Jesus Christ has risen from the dead. Have you? Our risen Lord is alive and well. You, too, should awaken from your deep sleep and begin to live again. Have you noticed that others are moving up and moving on? If the answer is yes, then you probably have been sitting in the same spot…

Hidden Figures

Yesterday is gone, but clips from the day have traveled into the future with me. Between loads of laundry and two cups of Columbian coffee, my husband and I slipped away for a few hours to grab lunch and a matinee. We saw Hidden Figures — though most of the world had already seen it….

One Shot

Good morning, friends! I’m so grateful to be with you today. It’s another beautiful day that the Lord has made, and I want to live it well. As you know, my day always starts with prayer, bible study, and a good breakfast. That’s my daily prep for whatever comes my way. In addition to that,…
